In this period of high uncertainty and constant change there is no such thing as a new normal. When it comes to insurance in superannuation, the new reality for super funds is fewer members with cover, increasing claims, higher community expectations, and greater levels of regulatory oversight and compliance costs.

So how do we prepare for what’s ahead?

Join us for a timely discussion to explore how funds can navigate the current uncertainty and shape a new course for their insurance offerings.

We’ll discuss:

  • key factors influencing your fund’s insurance strategy: political, economic, sociological, technological, legal and environmental
  • budget, legislative and Code impacts, including the 1 per cent cap and stapling of accounts
  • achieving sustainability through future headwinds
  • balancing insurance design elements including:
    • TPD vs Income Protection
    • one-size fits all vs individualisation
    • base coverage vs additional opt-in cover
  • merger impact on insurance offerings.

How do we ensure all Australians have adequate retirement savings while continuing to access life insurance protection through superannuation?

Join us to hear more.
