Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice (Code)

WA Super is adopting the Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice (code) from its commencement on 1 July 2018. 

The overarching objective of the Code is to improve the insurance in superannuation offered to you, and the processes by which we provide insurance benefits to you.

WA Super’s insurance arrangements will be fully compliant with the Code by 1 July 2021.

Please view our Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice transition plan for details on how and when we’ll meet the Code’s requirements.

Why have insurance inside super?

Having insurance through your super makes protecting yourself against the unforeseen easier than you may think. Premiums are usually lower and automatically deducted from your super account.

WA Super offers members the following types of insurance, to help you and your family manage financially in the event of your death and/or disablement due to illness or injury.

These are:

  • Death and Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD)
  • Income protection
