Insurance

Use your super to protect your future

Superannuation isn’t just an investment that can help you when you retire – your super can be used to protect the financial wellbeing of you and your family.

You can fund a number of types of insurance cover through your super. This means your future can be protected with the added benefit of maintaining your disposable income. Through IOOF’s range of superannuation products, you can purchase different types of insurance cover to protect you in the event serious injury or illness, permanent disablement, or provide a lump sum to your beneficiaries in the unfortunate event of your death.

Your financial adviser can help

Whilst insurance is a great way to benefit from your super balance right now, it’s important to determine the optimal level of cover for you. If you have too little cover, you or your family could suffer financial distress in a time of need. If your cover is too high, it can erode your super balance resulting in a lower retirement benefit.

Your financial adviser can help you assess your insurance needs, including an appropriate level of cover and whether retail insurance is right for you. If you don’t have a financial adviser, you can find one by clicking here.
