Key Life Events

Extra insurance when you need it most!


At QIEC Super we understand, that as educators, your time is precious. That’s why we want to highlight a unique benefit to our valued QIEC Super members; Key Life Events cover.


QIEC Super members are eligible to apply for an additional unit of Death and TPD insurance cover at certain Key Life Events without having to provide evidence of health (refer to table below).


This cover is provided at the same fee rate as any existing Death and TPD insurance cover you already have. The amount of the fee payable will be recalculated to reflect the increase in cover. Any cover under this condition is subject to the same exclusions and fee loadings that may already apply.


This option can only be exercised once in any 12 month period by an insured member. For example: If you apply for one event (e.g. marriage), you would not be eligible to apply for any other event (e.g. a new mortgage) within the same 12 month period.


To take advantage of this offer, you will need to apply for the cover within 120 days of the event occurring, and provide evidence of the event*.


The table below outlines the information required to apply for this cover.
