Income Protection insurance cover means peace of mind for you and your family if you’re suddenly incapacitated and need time to recover.

Energy Super's Income Protection insurance provides you with an income replacement payment in the event that a temporary disablement prevents you from working.  This cover can be provided for up to two years, or, if you have selected the extended cover, until you reach age 65.

Standard Income Protection insurance (up to two years) pays the lesser of 80% of your income or the level of cover you received automatically or applied for. A superannuation benefit is also payable into your Energy Super account equal to the lesser of 10% of income or 10% of the benefit level for which you are insured.

Arrangements for Defined Benefit members differ to those above.  If you’re a Defined Benefit member and would like more information, please read the Defined Benefit Handbook, call us on 1300 436 374 or email us.

Energy Super's size means we are able to negotiate great premium rates for our members.  You may be eligible for even lower premiums if your job is performed primarily in an office environment. To review current indexed premium rates, please see the Energy Super Insurance Guide.
