Opt in to keep your insurance
The Australian Government requires people to opt in to keep the insurance cover they have through their inactive super accounts. Your account will be defined as ‘inactive’ if no contribution or rollover has been received for a continuous period of 16 months.
This means that members with accounts that have been inactive for 16 months, and have not opted in, will have their insurance cancelled.
The change is part of the Australian Government’s Protecting Your Superannuation legislation. It’s designed to preserve the super balances of members with inactive accounts for longer by stopping the insurance premiums they pay for cover they may not need.
