Protecting Your Super Legislation | Hewison

Protecting Your Super Legislation

As the name suggests, the protecting your super legislation was designed to protect your super savings from being eroded if you have a low account balance of $6,000 or less. This does have implications for insurance cover through super. If you hold insurance through a super account that has become inactive, the insurance is automatically cancelled.

Insurance through super is not available if your account is inactive unless you advise the super fund that you wish to retain the insurance.
