Even the most carefully made financial plans can fail due to unexpected circumstances. So it makes sense to have a safety net in place. Having the right insurance cover can ensure a tragedy will not be made worse by financial burden.
Fortunately you can access Death cover, Total and Permanent Disablement cover and Income Protection insurance through your QIEC Super membership. In fact you may find that you’re already covered because of ‘automatic acceptance’.1
Why have insurance through your super?
- It’s often cheaper because super funds have access to group insurance discounts
- Insurance fees are paid from your super account, not your after-tax income
- You can get the cover you need for you and your family, even if money is tight
- It’s easy to manage because insurance fees are automatically deducted from your super account
What if you didn’t make it home from work tonight? Ensuring your partner and family are financially secure if the worst happens is important.
Death cover will pay a lump sum to your dependants in the event of your death.
Total and Permanent Disablement cover
How would you pay off the mortgage and support your family if you became totally and permanently disabled?
Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) cover will give you a lump sum payout to assist with living expenses and debts.
Income Protection cover
If you weren’t able to work for an extended period, how would you continue to pay for your house, car, food, or school fees? Your income is your most important financial asset and that’s why you need Income Protection insurance to cover it.
Income Protection cover is designed to provide you with a monthly income if, through sickness or injury, you are temporarily unable to work.
Key Life Events
Adjusting your level of insurance cover with life’s big events is simple with QIEC Super. Whether it’s getting married, having a child, or buying a home, you can access an extra unit of Death and TPD cover to match where you are in life.
