If this provision is not satisfied, then you will be eligible for Life Insurance only; and you are in Active Employment with your Intrust Super contributing employer on the date that your cover commences. However, if you are not in Active Employment on the date your cover commences, you are still eligible for Limited Cover for 12 months; and the Eligible Person is not applying for, entitled to, or has not been paid a terminal illness benefit from any superannuation fund or life insurance policy. If this provision is not satisfied, then the Eligible Person is not eligible for any cover.

NB: If you join Intrust Super outside 180 days of becoming First Eligible, and where the other conditions relating to commencement of cover have been met, you will still receive cover but it will be Limited Cover for 12 months. First Eligible: means the later of when your employer becomes a participating employer [i.e. an employer who makes or agrees to make contributions to the Fund, abides by the rules of the Fund and is allocated a Fund membership number] and the date your employer first becomes liable to pay the Superannuation Guarantee Charge for you.

3 Total and Permanent Disablement Insurance Your ability to earn an income is probably your greatest financial asset. Imagine the stress associated with suffering a serious injury or illness that permanently prevents you from earning a living. Core Super MySuper lets you combine Total and Permanent Disablement [TPD] Insurance with your Life Insurance. Please note that your TPD Insurance cannot exceed the amount of Life Insurance you have within Core Super MySuper. If eligible, TPD benefits are paid in the event that you become totally and permanently disabled. The definition of TPD varies depending on whether you are gainfully employed or not as at the date accepted by the Insurer as your date of disablement. What is Total and Permanent Disablement? Total and Permanent Disablement is covered by this policy for an Insured Person who is: [a] Aged less than 65 and is gainfully employed and working 15 or more hours each week within the 6 months prior to the Date of Disablement, is determined under either Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 or Part 5, [b] Aged less than 65 and who was not gainfully employed or is working less than 15 hours each week within the 6 months prior to the Date of Disablement, is determined under either Part 3, Part 4 or Part 5. Total and Permanent Disablement means: Part 1 Unlikely to Return to Work The Insured Person is unable to do any work as a result of Injury or Illness for 3 consecutive months and in our opinion at the end of that 3 months they continue to be so disabled that they are in our opinion unlikely to resume their previous occupation at any time in the future and will be unlikely at any time in the future to perform any Other Occupation. Part 2 Permanent Impairment The Insured Person is engaged in gainful employment when suffering an Injury or Illness and, as a result of that Injury or Illness, they: [a] Suffer a permanent impairment of at least 25% of whole person function as defined in the American Medical Association publication Guides to the Evaluation of Permanent Impairment, 4th edition, or any other recognised standard we agree, and [b] Are disabled to such an extent, as a result of this impairment, that the Insured Person is unlikely ever again to be able to engage in any occupation, business, profession or employment for which the Insured Person is reasonably fitted by education, training or experience. Part 3 Loss of Use Of The Insured Person suffers the total, permanent and irrecoverable loss of: [a] The use of 2 limbs, or [b] The sight of both eyes, or [c] The use of 1 limb and sight of 1 eye. Part 4 Cognitive Loss The Insured Person, as a result of Illness or Injury, suffers Cognitive Loss. Part 5 Activities of Daily Living The Insured Person suffers an Illness or Injury, that in our opinion: [a] Totally and irreversibly prevents them from performing 2 of the Activities of Daily Living without assistance from another adult person for at least 3 consecutive months, and [b] Since they became ill or injured, they have been under the regular care and attention of a Doctor for that Illness or Injury, and [c] In our opinion, the Illness or Injury means that they are unlikely to ever again be able to perform at least 2 of the Activities of Daily Living without assistance from another adult person. Alignment of Total and Permanent Disablement benefits with the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 Effective from 1 January 2014 or such earlier date as we agree with the Proposer, an Insured Person must be disabled to such an extent, as a result of that Illness or Injury, that the Insured Person is unlikely ever again to be able to engage in any occupation, business, profession or employment, for which they are reasonably suited by their education, training or experience, in order to satisfy part 3, 4 or 5. We will waive our usual 3 month Total and Permanent Disablement waiting period and provide immediate assessment where a member is suffering Paralysis and all claim requirements have been received by us. Terminal Illness Benefit Where the Insurer is satisfied that you have been diagnosed with a Terminal Illness you may be eligible for a Terminal Illness benefit. A Terminal Illness benefit will be the lesser of your agreed benefit and $3M. In these circumstances, the Insurer will pay the Agreed Benefit at your date of death less any Terminal Illness benefit that has already been paid. To apply for a Terminal Illness benefit medical reports must be supplied to the Insurer. Terminal Illness: means a disease or condition that, in the opinion of two registered Doctors approved by us, is likely to lead to the Insured Person s death within a period of 24 months [the Certification Period] from the date the Doctor provides certification in respect of the Terminal Illness and the Certification Period must not have ended. At least one of the registered Doctors must be a specialist in the field to which the Terminal Illness relates. [ 3 ] CORE INSURANCE 3 Aug 2015
4 [ 4 ] intrust.com.au More cover when you need it In addition to the automatic cover you receive on joining, for specific life events such as marriage, divorce, taking out a mortgage for your permanent residence of $100,000 or more, or you or your partner giving birth to or adopting a child, you can apply for an additional unit of Life and TPD Insurance cover, generally without providing any additional medical evidence. You can only ever increase cover once for each of these events. To receive this upgrade you must: be less than 55 years old when you apply; only apply to increase your cover once for any of the nominated events; have not taken advantage of this offer in the last 12 months; not have existing cover that is subject to any special loadings or exclusions, and you must not have been previously declined cover under the Policy; and apply for the cover increase within 60 days of the life event happening and provide evidence that it has in fact occurred. If this additional cover is accepted and a claim arises within the first six months, a payment will only be made in respect of that additional cover if it results from accidental bodily injury and otherwise satisfies the Insurer s requirements. Contact us for a better understanding of what this means, but in much simplified terms it means Death or Total and Permanent Disablement by visible, violent and external means. Contact us to take up this offer. We ll write to you as soon as the additional cover starts. Naturally, there are some rules and conditions attached to Life Insurance. We ve highlighted the most important rules and conditions in the Snapshot of your Life and TPD cover on the following page, but for more details please contact us and we ll happily answer your questions or send you a copy of the policy document. Account-based premium deductions There are two important points to note that result from the account-based premium deductions: 1. If an employer who was previously making contributions on your behalf ceases those contributions and your account balance falls below $1,200, your insurance cover will cease. This situation would most likely arise where you have left the [previously contributing] employer s service and you do not have another employer contributing to Core Super on your behalf. 2. Where you do not have employer contributions paid on your behalf and your balance falls below $1,200, and your cover ceases as a result of that, you may still have your cover reinstated to the Default Cover or to the level of cover you held immediately prior the cessation of your cover, whichever is greater. This could occur if the same or new employer contributes within six months of the end of the month that the cover ceased. Where this payment is received outside of this time, you will have cover reinstated to the Default level of cover [2 units of combined Life and TPD cover], provided you are in Active Employment on the day cover recommences. If you are not in Active Employment on the day cover commences, you will receive Limited Cover for 12 months. Other things to know about insurance Don t lose your cover The essential point to note here is that where you want your Life Insurance to continue after you leave your current contributing employer, then [subject to your situation being one of the two points under the Account based premium deductions heading] you must ensure that your account balance does not fall below $1,200, and that the available amount is sufficient to pay the necessary premium. While all that sounds rather complicated, it is important that you are aware of the details of the Life Insurance available to you. Account-based premium deductions provide more security for you as a Core Super member. Exclusions If a claim results from any self-injury or suicide any Life Insurance will be reduced to 25% of one unit of cover, regardless of the amount of cover you have purchased. No payment will be made if the claim is the result of you actively participating in any militant activities. Overseas residence Life or Life and TPD cover may continue if you are working overseas so long as you remain a member of the Fund and premiums continue to be paid during your period of overseas residence. The period of overseas residence where cover may continue cannot be longer than three years. Prior approval must be gained from the Insurer for cover to apply for periods of overseas residence longer than three years. Cover does not apply in countries that are considered a Hazardous Destination [i.e. a country that is listed on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade website [ under advised against all travel ]. Where you are residing overseas, the Insurer reserves the right to ask you to return to Australia at your own expense in the event that you lodge a claim for TPD or a Terminal Illness.

What it costs For Life Insurance only a low $1.10 per unit per week. For combined Life and TPD Insurance a low $2.00 per unit per week. This is taken from your account balance each month.
