Putting Members' Interests First

From 1 April 2020, insurance rules change for super fund members under age 25 or with an account balance below $6,000.  

What is Putting Members' Interests First Legislation (PMIF)?

Most people automatically get Death and Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD) insurance when they join a super fund.

Due to recent government changes, for some  members this will be switched off on 1 April 2020 unless they make a choice to keep it.

  • Existing members with account balances yet to reach $6,000 at least once as at 1 November 2019 must let their super fund know by 31 March 2020 if they want to keep their cover or they may have their insurance cancelled.
  • New members joining from 1 April 2020 need to be aged 25 or over, and have an account balance of $6,000 or more, for insurance to be automatically provided. Members who are under 25 must opt in manually.
