Putting Members’ Interest First (PMIF)

No Insurance cover for accounts under $6,000 or if you’re under 25 years of age

The Government has recently passed new legislation to ensure that superannuation members with low account balances are not paying premiums for insurance cover that may erode their retirement savings.

From 1 April 2020, any new Christian Super members joining OR waiting for their default insurance cover to commence won’t receive default cover until they’re over the age of 25 AND have a minimum balance of $6,000.

What we will do:

We will be turning off your insurance on your account from the 1 April 2020 if:

  • Your account balance is less than $6,000
  • You are under 25 years of age

For existing Christian Super members, the following will occur:

If we do not hear from you before 1 April 2020 and your account balance is below $6,000 (on this date) or you are under 25 years of age, your insurance cover will be cancelled effective 1 April 2020.

If your account balance reaches $6,000 between 1 November 2019 and 31 March 2020 and you are over 25 years of age, your insurance cover will not be cancelled.
