Change or cancel your insurance

Most Media Super accounts come with a level of automatic default insurance cover. But we know that one size doesn’t fit all and there's a lot of reasons why the default level of cover might not suit you.

You might need to protect yourself and your family for a higher amount to cover mortgage payments. Or you’ve met with one of our financial planners who has recommended a different amount for you. Or you simply already have insurance outside of super.

Whatever the reason, you can tailor your insurance cover to suit your needs.

Before making any changes, think about how much insurance you need to make sure you, and your loved ones, have enough money if things don’t go to plan.

It’s always a good idea to speak to someone to discuss your insurance needs before making changes. Our Helpline Advisers# can help with your questions about your insurance within Media Super. If you need more personalised financial advice, they can connect you with a Media Super Financial Planner.
