Don’t wait until it’s too late

Every day we hear stories about people who were happily going through life only to be struck down by illness or injury.  People with young children, mortgages or caring responsibilities who thought they had a secure income but suddenly find they are without that fortnightly pay when their personal leave runs out.

Nobody thinks about the insurance cover included with their superannuation until they need it but here’s a very important message – the insurance included as part of your superannuation is about to change significantly and you only have until 28 June to lock in your current levels of cover.

Check your super: NOW!
There are some big changes to superannuation coming in on July 1 that could affect you.
