Why should you care about insurance?

Life is full of surprises, so it’s important to plan for the unexpected, like if you get sick or injured and are unable to work. At CareSuper we make it easy. You can apply for death, total & permanent disablement (TPD) and income protection insurance through your super at competitive rates.

Keep in mind that this calculator only applies to default cover for Employee Plan members. If you have a Corporate Insurance arrangement, read your relevant Insurance Guide for information about your premiums.

First, enter your date of birth and occupational category to determine the cost of your default cover. You can then calculate the cost of tailoring your cover, by changing the death and TPD cover amounts or adding income protection.

Job category:  i To determine your occupational category, answer the following questions:

1) Are the duties of your occupation limited to professional, managerial, administrative, clerical, secretarial or similar ‘white collar’ nature tasks which do not involve manual work and are undertaken entirely within an office environment (excluding travel time from one office environment to another)?

2) Are you earning in excess of $100,000 p.a. from your profession?

3 Do you:
a) Hold a tertiary qualification, or are you a member of a professional institute or registered as a practicing member of your profession by a government body?


b) Work in a management role?

You will also need to meet criteria around the type of work you do, and your duties, education level and salary, to ensure you’re eligible to change your cover. You can apply to change your occupational category at any time by completing the Changing your occupational category form available at
