Transfer your
cover to Hostplus

If you’ve already got insurance cover with another super fund or insurance provider, you may be able to transfer it to Hostplus.

Why transfer your cover?

Whether you’ve got one insurance policy or multiple policies, transferring your existing Death and Total & Permanent Disability (TPD) or Income Protection insurance cover to Hostplus can help you streamline your insurance and cut back on life admin – and that’s a positive for almost everyone. 

Holding multiple insurance arrangements may mean that you have too much insurance, or are paying for insurance you can’t claim on. This may impact your ability to save money for retirement. You should review your insurance needs to determine what level of insurance cover is appropriate for you.

If you do have insurance cover elsewhere, you may be able to transfer that cover to Hostplus. You can then enjoy the ease of managing your super and insurance all in one spot. 

Is Hostplus insurance right for you?

Hostplus insurance is designed for a specific target market, so it’s important to consider whether it’s right for you. If you transfer your insurance cover to Hostplus, you’ll need to have sufficient funds in your Hostplus account to cover any outstanding insurance premiums.
Any loadings, restrictions and exclusions that are on your existing policy will apply to your transferred cover. You should also check for any differences in policy terms or conditions before you transfer.


Your insurance and super all in one spot? THAT’S A PLUS

What do you need to know?

You can transfer cover provided that:

  • your transferred cover is of a similar nature to the cover provided under Hostplus
  • your transferred cover is still in force
  • you cancel your transferred cover with the previous insurer once the transfer to Hostplus has occurred. If you do not cancel your previous cover, any benefit payable to you in the event of a claim will be reduced by the amount payable under the previous cover.

Any loadings, restrictions, and exclusions which apply on your transferred cover will also apply to your cover transferred to Hostplus.

We recommend that you do not cancel any existing cover or close your other super fund account until your application to transfer cover is accepted.
