You can cancel your insurance by calling us on 13 64 63 or download the form below.
You can opt-in to add insurance cover before you’re eligible for Basic Insurance Cover or to keep your current insurance cover. This will allow you to keep your cover if your account becomes, or is already, inactive (that is, a contribution hasn’t been credited to your account for 16 months or more).
There might be times in the future when your insurance is cancelled or changed in line with the normal terms and conditions of our insurance, for example you reach the maximum age to have our insurance. If there are any material changes to your insurance, we’ll let you know in writing at least 30 days before the changes take effect. You can find out more by reading the Product Disclosure Statement and Insurance Guide. Importantly one of the best ways to keep your insurance is to make regular contributions to your account. The best way to do this is to have your employer contribute the compulsory super they pay for you to your Mine Super account.
*If you’ve chosen to opt-in for insurance, you won’t be eligible for a refund of premiums if you cancel your cover as you’ve elected to have this insurance on your account.
