Calculating the insurance fee
The cost of insurance is made up of two elements, a flat fee of $1.50 per month (retained by the fund to cover the cost of providing insurance to members) and a monthly premium payable to the Insurer. The monthly premium is based on the type of cover, number of units and your age. For more info, refer to our Insurance Guide.

|A||B||C = A+B|

Insurance type definitions
*Provides a lump sum cash payment when you die or you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness, meaning you’ll die within 12 months. We recommend if you haven’t done so already, that you inform us of your nomination beneficiaries for your super fund.
^Provides a lump sum cash payment if you’re permanently unable to work due to illness or injury. It’s important to know that you can only take up TPD with death cover (i.e. not on a standalone basis).
+If you’re unable to work after a 90-day period due to temporary illness or injury, income protection insurance pays up to 75% of your salary, in monthly benefits.
It is important to note tailored insurance cover is subject to acceptance by the Insurer, OnePath Life Limited, and to the terms and conditions of the insurance policies issued by the insurer to the Trustee. Eligible Virgin Money Super members can apply for tailored insurance cover and/or add income protection, by completing the tailored insurance application form.
If you’re an existing customer and hold Tailored Death only or Tailored Death and Total and Permanent Disability cover, you can apply to increase your cover by up to 25% to a maximum of $250,000 once in any 12 month period for any one specific life event without being underwritten. Specific life events include:
- Your child starting secondary school
- Taking a mortgage
- Having a child
- Completing an apprenticeship
You can increase your cover to a maximum of 3 times under the life events cover. Please refer to the Insurance Guide for full details and conditions.
