Peace of mind today, protection for tomorrow

Equip Super is here to equip you with the products, services and information you need to achieve your best possible retirement outcomes. And that means more than simply providing great super. Insurance through your super has as a valuable role to play when it comes to helping you protect your assets and your future lifestyle.

Insurance cover can significantly reduce the financial pressure for you and your loved ones if you’re ever in a position where you can’t earn an income due to disablement, or if you pass away. And it can give you considerable peace of mind today, knowing that you and your loved ones are covered.

So why get insurance through super?

The main advantages of having insurance through your super include:

  • Insurance costs are generally less in super, as super funds use group life cover – this allows them to purchase insurance at cheaper bulk rates.
  • Insurance costs are usually taken straight from your super account, so it doesn’t come out of your take-home pay, without the hassle of having to pay a regular bill.
  • In some cases, your employer may pay the insurance costs for you.
  • Automatic, or ‘default’ cover for eligible members, usually doesn’t require a health check or completion of lengthy forms.
  • Some funds claim a tax deduction on the costs they deduct from your account to pay for your insurance cover. For example, at Equip Super, we pass this benefit back to you directly by reducing the amount of tax that’s deducted from your account. This means you’re essentially receiving a 15% refund of the cost of your cover.
