Transfer your insurance

Transfer your insurance

Do you already have insurance sitting in another super fund or even privately held insurance?

If you already have insurance cover but are thinking about applying for more through your GuildSuper account, it’s worth taking a second to think about how much cover you need.

Consolidating or transferring super funds

Consolidating your super and any insurance that goes along with it into one fund has many benefits. But one thing you do need to keep in mind is that when you change or move your super across to another super fund, you’re also switching your insurance over to a new policy and insurer.

Like anything, this isn’t always going to be a bad thing, but it’s important you understand the differences in what you’re getting.

Some of the common changes to watch out for could include:

  • Underwriting, including a detailed medical questionnaire.

    • We’ve spoken about underwriting on the Change your insurance page, so if you need a little recap of what that is and how it works, head back there.

  • Exclusions for pre-existing medical conditions.

  • Exclusions based on your job (if it’s considered physically dangerous or that sort of thing).

  • Exclusions based on the number of hours you work.

  • Limited cover for casual or contract workers.
