Insurance changes 1 November 2021 (age 30+)

Significant Event Notice

Insurance changes effective 1 November 2021

Christian Super regularly reviews the Death, Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD), and Income Protection cover we offer to ensure that they remain both competitive, and appropriate for our members’ needs. Following our most recent review, we have implemented a number of changes to our insurance offering that will better align our cover with what’s available in the industry. These changes will see a reduction in the premiums paid for most of our members. 

 

What does this mean for me?

As you currently hold insurances through your Christian Super account, the following changes may apply to you from 1 November 2021: 

  • We have simplified our TPD Definition to make it easier for eligible members to claim; 
  • We have merged our Group 3 – ‘Light Blue Collar ‘and Group 4 – ‘Heavy Blue Collar’ occupational codes, in line with the rest of the industry, into a new ‘Blue Collar’ category;  
  • We have increased the maximum amount of Death cover you can apply for from $20 million to an unlimited amount; and 
  • We have re-negotiated the rates we pay to our insurance provider to better reflect the insurance needs of our members based on age and likelihood to claim.  

Though most members will see a decrease in the premiums paid, some members (particularly former Group 3 – ‘Light Blue Collar’ members) may see a slight increase.
