Apply for new insurance or transfer existing cover
As a Statewide Super member, you can apply for insurance, apply to increase your existing cover or apply to transfer any existing insurance.
If you’ve joined Statewide Super through your employer, you could be eligible to automatically receive four units of Income Protection insurance, and up to four units of death cover and TPD cover, subject to you meeting the eligibility criteria*. Please refer to the ‘insurance in your super’ booklet for more details.
