Over time your insurance needs will change so it makes sense to check your insurance cover arrangements.
For example, are you in the right insurance group (especially if your role has changed), do you have the right amount of cover, or do your beneficiaries need updating?
You can check your insurance online through your secure online account.
TWUSUPER offers three insurance groups. These are based on the type of work you do.
You can reduce or cancel your cover at any time by calling 1800 222 071 from 8am to 8pm (AEST/AEDT) weekdays. The change will be effective immediately.
For other changes – such as applying for extra cover, changing insurance groups, or making a lifetime event change – you need to apply in writing. See change cover to find out more.
Nominate the beneficiaries you would like to receive your death benefit in the event of your death. A beneficiary can include one or more of your dependants, or your legal personal representative (the executor of your will or the administrator of your estate).
Your nomination can be binding or non-binding.
