Pandemic exclusion removed from Insurance Policy
27 April 2020
As a result of TWUSUPER's discussions with TAL on behalf of our members, the insurer has removed the pandemic exclusion from the Fund’s Insurance Policy.
This means new and existing members who have insurance with TWUSUPER are, and will continue to be, covered for pandemics - including COVID-19.

Could you benefit from the Work Test Exemption?
19 June 2019
From 1 July 2019, you can contribute to your super between age 65 and 74 if you satisfied the Work Test last financial year. This is known as the Work Test Exemption (WTE).
