3 Super for creative people Protection when you need it most Your health, family and your income-earning potential are amongst your most valuable personal assets. Protecting yourself against unexpected events, illness or accidents is a key part of personal financial security. At Media Super, we believe insurance is important, and offer eligible members automatic insurance with an option to increase your cover upon joining. Buying your insurance through your super fund can be one of the cheapest ways to get cover. Media Super provides insurance as a group or bulk policy, so we receive a discount and pass these savings on to you. You can tailor this cover to suit your needs. Three types of cover available 1. Death only Generally it pays: > a lump sum to your beneficiaries or Estate if you die; or > a lump sum if you are Terminally ill*. 2. Death and Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) Generally it pays: > a lump sum to your beneficiaries or Estate if you die; or > a lump sum if you are Totally and Permanently Disabled*; or > a lump sum if you are Terminally ill*. 3. Income Protection Replaces a percentage of your salary, including superannuation contributions, if you are unable to work because of illness or injury and are either Totally Disabled* or Partially Disabled*. * These benefits will be paid to you subject to you also satisfying a condition of release for superannuation purposes, see Important information box below. Which type of member are you? Media Super has two types of members, and our insurance arrangements vary depending on the type of member you are. Employer-sponsored members are: > members whose employer has entered into an arrangement with Media Super to contribute to the Fund on the member s behalf; or > members who have entered into an arrangement with Media Super for their employer to contribute to the Fund on their behalf. And are generally eligible for # : > Death only and Death and TPD cover one of Standard Default cover, Employer-sponsored Default cover, or Limited standard Default cover. > Income Protection Personal account members are: > members who are self-employed or freelancers; or > members who have chosen to join the Fund. These members may make contributions on their own behalf. And are generally eligible for # : > Death only and Death and TPD cover - Restricted Standard Default cover > Income Protection. # Subject to meeting the applicable eligibility criteria set out in this document. IMPORTANT INFORMATION In addition to meeting the applicable insurance definitions in the policy, in order for the Trustee to release these benefits, the following definitions (as applicable) must be satisfied: Permanent incapacity means ill-health (whether physical or mental), where the Trustee is reasonably satisfied that you are unlikely, because of ill health, to engage in gainful employment for which you are reasonably qualified by education, training or experience. Also note that for this benefit to be concessionally taxed, it must satisfy the requirements set out in the section How super is taxed in the Additional information about your super guide available at mediasuper.com.au/resources, including certification by two medical practitioners. Temporary incapacity in relation to a member who has ceased to be gainfully employed (including a member who has ceased temporarily to receive any gain or reward under a continuing arrangement for the member to be gainfully employed), means ill-health (whether physical or mental) that caused the member to cease to be gainfully employed but does not constitute permanent incapacity. Terminal medical condition means that the following circumstances exist: > two registered medical practitioners have certified, jointly or separately, that the person suffers from an illness, or has incurred an injury, that is likely to result in the death of the person within 12 months of the date of the certification; > at least one of the registered medical practitioners is a specialist practising in an area related to the illness or injury suffered by the person; and > for each certificate, the 12-month period has not ended. For insured benefits to be paid directly to you, both the insurance definitions for your insurance cover and one of the above definitions (as applicable) must be satisfied. Refer to pages 19 to 20 for the current insurance definitions. Note: If your insurance cover with Media Super commenced prior to 1 July 2014 and you have continuously held the cover since, different insurance definitions may apply to your insurance cover.

4 Super for creative people Death only and Death and Total & Permanent Disability (TPD) insurance What would you do if you were no longer able to work? Would you survive financially? Death only and Death and TPD cover provides a lump sum payment to ease the financial burden placed on you at such a time. Automatic cover We automatically provide eligible new members with age-based Death only or Death and TPD cover when you join Media Super. Eligibility for Automatic Default cover In order to receive automatic Standard Default cover or Employer-selected Default cover: a. You must be employed by an Employer-sponsor and have joined the Fund within 180 days of being employed by the Employer-sponsor or your employer becoming an Employer-sponsor of the Fund, and sufficient minimum member details are received by the Fund within that time; and b. An employer contribution must be received by the Fund within 180 days of you being employed by the Employersponsor or your employer becoming an Employersponsor of the Fund; and c. You are not applying for, entitled to, or have been paid a total and permanent disablement benefit or terminal illness benefit from any superannuation fund or life insurance policy. In this instance, you are not eligible for an insured benefit; and d. You were At Work (see Definitions on page 19) on the date that cover commences. If you satisfy the above, your Default insurance cover will commence on the later of the date you first joined your Employer sponsor as an employee or your employer becoming an Employer-sponsor of the Fund. If you have Employer-selected Default cover, your automatic insurance cover will be the lesser of the cover selected by your employer and the Automatic Acceptance Level (AAL) set out in the table following. The AAL will be based on the number of insured employees at your place of employment and will be provided based on the type chosen by your employer. The table below shows the maximum level of cover that will be provided without you having to submit evidence of health. Should your employer select an insured benefit that results in a sum insured which is greater than the AAL that applies to your employer, your cover or the amount of cover in excess of the AAL will only be provided if the Insurer accepts your application for cover or additional cover, as the case may be. AUTOMATIC ACCEPTANCE LEVELS Number of insured employees Cover 1 4 Nil 5 9 $200, $350, $600, $800, Individual Consideration Media Super offers various styles of Death and TPD insurance: > Unit-based Cover: cover for a fixed number of insurance units. Whilst the premium payable per unit does not change over the life of the policy, the lump sum benefit provided per unit decreases as you get older. > Fixed-dollar Cover: cover is provided as a fixed dollar amount. The cost of insurance premiums increases as you get older. > Formula-based Cover (Employer-selected cover only): calculated as a percentage or multiple of salary. The cost of insurance premiums is based on the amount of cover and your age. You can only have Unit-based, Formula-based or Fixed-dollar cover not a combination of these options.

5 Super for creative people. 5 Which cover will I receive? Employer-sponsored members Standard Default cover You generally receive Standard Default cover automatically unless your employer chooses Employer-selected cover for you. Standard Default cover provides you with the default number of units applicable to your age next birthday without having to produce evidence of health, subject to eligibility conditions. The default number of units is tiered to increase with age, and will be updated annually on your birthday as shown in the table on page 7. Employer-selected Default cover This type of cover works on the basis that your employer selects the type of cover you may receive. With Employer-selected Default cover, there are three types of cover that your employer can choose from: > Unit-based cover > Fixed-dollar cover > Formula-based cover If Unit-based cover is selected by your employer, the default number of units provided to you (subject to eligibility conditions) will be selected by your employer, and may be different from the Standard Default number of units applicable to your age next birthday. If Formula-based cover is selected by your employer, there are two options your employer can choose from. These are: > Future service percentage of salary; or > Multiple of salary. Where Media Super is the default fund under Choice of Fund legislation, your employer cannot select insurance cover which is less than the legislative minimum. If your employer does not elect Employer-selected Default cover, you will generally receive Standard Default cover. Your employer and your Media Super welcome letter should advise you which of the above insurance options applies. Note: If you are an Employer-sponsored member aged between 11 and 14 and your employer has selected Employer-selected Default cover, you will be provided with Standard Default cover instead of the Employer-selected Default cover, subject to meeting the applicable eligibility conditions. Limited Standard Default cover Where you do not meet the At Work requirement or the 180 days timeframes set out at (a) and (b) for Standard Default cover or Employer-selected Default cover in Eligibility for Automatic Default cover on page 4, you will receive Limited Standard Default cover. You must still meet the requirements set out at (c). Limited Standard Default cover will either be based on the Standard Default cover or the Employer-selected Default cover (as applicable). However, you will only be eligible for: > Death only cover, or > Death and New Events Total and Permanent Disablement cover, which means that you are only insured against events that occurred on or after the date when your insurance first commenced. This limited cover will commence on the date you first join Media Super, and will extend: > where you do not meet the At Work requirement, until you are again At Work performing all your normal duties without limitation; and > where you have not met the 180 days timeframes, for 24 months, provided you are At Work at the end of that period. If at that date you are not At Work, you will retain limited cover until you are again At Work performing all normal duties without limitation. After such time, Limited Standard Default cover reverts to full Standard Default cover or the Employer-selected Default cover (as applicable). Personal account members Restricted standard default cover If you are a Personal account member, are eligible for insurance and within 180 days of joining the Fund, a contribution is paid into your account that is sufficient to cover the insurance premiums for that period, then you automatically receive Restricted Standard Default cover. Your cover will start on the first day that you join the Fund. Restricted Standard Default cover is subject to a Pre- Existing Conditions exclusion. You will receive the Standard Default number of units applicable to your age next birthday without having to produce evidence of health, subject to eligibility conditions. The Standard Default number of units is tiered to increase with age, and will be updated annually on your birthday as shown in the table on page 7. What benefits are payable? During your membership of the Fund, you can only receive one class of insured benefit in relation to your Death and TPD cover: a Death benefit, a Terminal Illness benefit, or a TPD benefit (except where you are eligible for a Terminal Illness benefit and your Death cover is greater than the $2.5 million limit that applies to Terminal Illness benefits see page 6 for details). Death benefit In the event of your death, your beneficiaries and/or legal personal representative(s) will receive the insured benefit as well as your super account balance. The insured benefit is determined as at the date of death. The insured benefit amount is paid into Media Super s Cash investment option, with effect from the date the insurance proceeds are received by the Fund. The maximum amount of cover offered is limited to $5 million for Death. For information about nominating a beneficiary, see page 14.

6 Super for creative people. 6 Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) benefit To receive a TPD benefit, you must satisfy the definition of Total and Permanent Disablement. Members are covered for TPD benefits regardless of the number of hours worked. As an employee, if you work more than 15 hours per week, you can claim for TPD if you can satisfy one of parts 1-5 of the TPD definition on pages 19 to 20. If you work less than 15 hours per week, then you must satisfy one of parts 2-5 in the definition. If a TPD benefit is payable, you will receive the insured benefit (if applicable) together with your super account balance, subject to satisfying a condition of release. This can be paid to you as a lump sum, or kept in the Fund and/or paid as a Media Super pension. The maximum amount of cover offered is limited to $2 million for Total and Permanent Disablement. > ONCE I COMPARED THE INSURANCE PREMIUMS THROUGH MEDIA SUPER WITH WHAT I WAS PAYING ELSEWHERE, I QUICKLY MADE THE DECISION TO SWAP OVER. I M VERY HAPPY. ABI RICHARDSON, Director, ARC Films The date for determination of the amount of TPD benefit will vary under the definition of Total and Permanent Disablement (see Definitions pages 19 and 20 for more information). If your TPD claim is approved by the Insurer, the insured benefit amount will be allocated to Media Super s investment options per future contributions, with effect from the date when the insurance proceeds are received by the Fund. Release of the insured benefit amount to you together with your account balance as a lump sum is subject to you also satisfying a condition of release under Superannuation law (see the Important information box on page 3). See Can the Insurer reduce or refuse to pay a benefit? in the Frequently asked questions section on page 17 for more information. Terminal Illness benefit If you are insured for Death only or Death and TPD cover, you will also be covered for a Terminal Illness benefit. To receive a Terminal Illness benefit, you must satisfy the definition of Terminally ill (see Definitions page 19) and the conditions detailed below. A Terminal Illness benefit is payable if: > the policy is in force; > you satisfy the definition of Terminally ill (see page 19); > you have not lodged and do not intend to lodge a claim for a Total and Permanent Disability benefit; > your cover has not ended (see page 16); and > you have not reached age 70. Upon acceptance of a Terminal Illness benefit, your Death only or Death and TPD cover benefit ceases. The Terminal Illness benefit is the lesser of: > the insured death benefit; and > $2.5 million. If your Death benefit is greater than $2.5 million, it will be reduced by the amount of Terminal Illness benefit paid to you, and any balance will be payable upon your death, as long as: > your death occurs before you reach age 70; > the policy is in force; and > premiums have continued to be paid for the reduced insured benefit. If your Terminal Illness claim is approved by the Insurer, the insured benefit amount will be allocated to Media Super s investment options per future contributions, with effect from the date when the insurance proceeds are received by the Fund. Release of the insured amount together with your super account balance as a lump sum is subject to you also satisfying a condition of release under Superannuation law (see the Important information box on page 3).

7 Super for creative people. 7 Premiums Premiums are calculated weekly and deducted monthly and on exit from your Media Super account. The applicable premium will depend on the type of cover you have. Standard Default cover, Employerselected Default cover (unit-based), Limited Standard Default cover, and Restricted Standard Default cover The premiums for this Unit-based cover will depend on: > the number of units you hold; > your age next birthday; and > any applicable medical loadings placed on your cover by the Insurer. The table below shows the cover per unit, the Standard Default number of units, and the corresponding Standard Default cover a member may receive based on their age next birthday. If you have Employer-selected Default (unit-based) cover, the default number of units you hold will be selected by your employer, and may be different from the Standard Default number of units applicable to your age next birthday shown in the table below. However, the base premium cost per unit of cover and the amount of cover per unit are as outlined in the tables below. Any medical loading placed on your cover by the Insurer will also impact on the premium that will apply to you.

8 Super for creative people. 8 Employer-selected Default cover The premiums for this Fixed-dollar or Formula-based cover will depend on: > the dollar value you are covered for; > your age next birthday; > the occupational factor applicable; and > any medical loadings placed on your cover by the Insurer The base premium rate for Death only and Death and TPD cover are outlined in the table below. Your occupation class will also impact on the premium that will apply to you, as may any medical loading. Premium rates for Fixed-dollar cover and Formula-based cover change as you become older. If you have Fixed-dollar cover or TPD cover that is a multiple of salary and your age next birthday is 62 to 66, your benefit will be reduced by 20% per annum (also known as a taper ) until the cover reaches zero. The table below shows by how much your benefit is reduced, based on your age at your next birthday.

9 Super for creative people. 9 Occupational factors An occupational factor will apply if your insurance cover is Fixed-dollar or Formula-based cover. Occupational factors are based on the classification that the Insurer applies to the nature of your occupation. For some members, the application of the occupational factor will mean an increase in the premium they pay. The table below shows the occupational factors that apply. OCCUPATIONAL FACTORS* Occupational Class Death Death & TPD Professional White Collar Light Manual Blue Collar Heavy Manual * Formula-based cover and Fixed-dollar cover only. WHEN I MET ONE OF THE FUND S FINANCIAL PLANNERS, I SIGNED UP ON THE SPOT. RON PATTERSON, Print Industry Manager You can contact the Fund to determine what occupational class you are in. When you are calculating the premium for insurance cover, you will need to multiply the applicable occupational factor in the table above by the premium rates shown on page 8. The occupational factor which applies depends on whether you have Death only or Death and TPD cover, as shown in the table above. Medical loadings When you apply for cover or an increase in cover, the Insurer may accept your application on the condition that a medical loading is applicable, in addition to the occupational factor. We will advise if you have a medical loading on your Death only or Death and TPD cover. EXAMPLE 1 A male white-collar worker (occupational factor of 1.00), who will turn 36 on his next birthday, has requested Death and TPD cover of $200,000, and has no medical loading. The annual premiums are based on each $1,000 insured. INSURED BENEFIT $200,000 / $1,000 = 200 $0.838 $ $ EXAMPLE 2 A female blue-collar member (occupational factor of 2.10), who will turn 44 on her next birthday, has requested Death and TPD cover of $200,000. INSURED BENEFIT $200,000 / $1,000 = 200 $1.438 $ $ (without medical loading) Additional medical loading as advised by the Insurer is 50%: $ x 50% = $ Total annual premium = $ $ = $ (with medical loading). Note: The examples above are for illustrative purposes only. They are not an estimate or guarantee of the amount of cover you may be eligible to hold, or the premiums that may be applicable to you.

11 Super for creative people Income Protection cover Illness or injury could affect you without warning. After your sick pay runs out, how would you pay your bills and meet your ongoing expenses? Income Protection provides you with an income during these times of financial stress. Income Protection replaces a percentage of your salary if you are unable to work for an extended period of time due to illness or injury, and you are either Totally Disabled or Partially Disabled. Which cover will I receive? Employer-sponsored members Income Protection selected by your employer Members are eligible to be automatically covered for Income Protection cover, provided that: a. you are employed by an Employer-sponsor who has elected to provide this cover; and b. you join the Fund within 180 days of joining the Employer-sponsor or your employer becoming an Employer-sponsor of the Fund, and minimum member details are received by the Fund within that time; and c. an employer contribution is received by the Fund on your behalf within 180 days of you joining the Employersponsor or your employer becoming an Employersponsor of the Fund. Where the above requirements have been met, a member will be eligible for automatic Income Protection cover of up to $20,000 per month, and if other eligibility criteria are met, cover commences on the later of the day you joined the Employer-sponsor or your employer becoming an Employer-sponsor of the Fund. All cover is subject to the Pre-Existing Conditions exclusion. Where a member requires cover in excess of $20,000 per month, they can apply to increase their monthly benefit to a maximum of $25,000 per month, subject to underwriting. A member can also request to remove the Pre-existing Conditions exclusion, subject to underwriting. Your Media Super welcome letter should advise you if your employer has elected for you to have Income Protection and should detail your insurance cover (if any). If your employer has not elected to provide Income Protection, you will need to apply for such insurance by completing the relevant sections of the Application for insurance cover form and personal health statement. If accepted by the Insurer, the date from which your insurance cover commences will be detailed in the letter advising you that your application has been accepted. Nominating a salary If you have automatic cover (which excludes Pre-Existing Conditions), your salary will be calculated based on the SG contributions paid to us by your employer. You can nominate a salary (greater or lesser) to be used to determine your benefit and premiums payable. Income Protection selected by you If you are not eligible for automatic cover and want to apply for Income Protection cover, you can apply for cover up to the lesser of: > a maximum of 85% of your salary, plus 9.5% SG paid into your Media Super account; and > $25,000 per month. Any insurance will be subject to the Insurer s approval, terms and conditions (e.g. exclusions, loadings, etc) which will be detailed in the insurance offer. The date your insurance cover commences (if any) will also be detailed in the letter advising you that your application has been accepted. Nominating a salary If you are an Employer-sponsored member with no automatic cover, you can elect to have your salary based on the SG contributions paid to us by your employer. Alternatively, you can nominate a salary. Note: If your Employer-selected Death and TPD cover is salarybased and you elect to have salary-based Income Protection cover, the salary advised by your employer will apply Personal account members Personal account members are eligible to be automatically covered for Income Protection cover, provided that: a. a fully completed Member Application form is received by the Fund; and b. you nominate a salary and waiting period (see section following); and c. a contribution is received by the Fund on your behalf within 180 days of the date you first join the Fund and is sufficient to cover the insurance premium. Where the above requirements have been met, you will be eligible for automatic Income Protection cover of up to $10,000 per month, and cover commences from the date you first joined the Fund.

12 Super for creative people. 12 All cover is subject to the Pre-Existing Conditions exclusion. Where you require cover in excess of $10,000 per month, you can apply to increase your monthly benefit to a maximum of $25,000 per month, subject to underwriting. You can also request to remove the Pre-existing Conditions exclusion, subject to underwriting. Nominating a salary Personal account members must nominate a salary which is to be used to determine your benefit entitlement and premiums payable. Note: If you fail to nominate a salary and waiting period at the time of joining, cover will not apply and any cover will need to be applied for and agreed to by the Insurer. Warning: In the event of a claim, you will be required to provide evidence that your nominated salary is an accurate reflection of your actual salary at the date of disablement. If your actual salary is: less than your nominated salary, your actual salary will be used to calculate your benefit; or more than your nominated salary, your benefit will be calculated on your nominated salary. Waiting periods The waiting period is the number of consecutive days that must elapse during which you are Totally Disabled or Partially Disabled, before you are eligible to be paid any Income Protection benefit. There are three waiting periods - 30, 60 or 90 days. The waiting period that you are accepted for is called the relevant waiting period, and during this period no benefits are payable. Employer-sponsored members with automatic cover generally have a default waiting period of 30 days. However, your employer may elect to choose a different waiting period. Your welcome letter will advise you of the relevant waiting period. If you want to change the waiting period, you will need to complete the Application for insurance cover form and personal health statement. All other members must nominate the waiting period they want when applying for insurance, using the above form. During the waiting period, you can return to work once, for up to five days, without having to start a new waiting period. If this occurs, the days worked will be added to your waiting period. What benefits are payable? Total Disability benefit If you suffer from a Total Disability and the Insurer admits your claim, Income Protection may cover a benefit equal to the lesser of 85% of your salary, plus 9.5% SG paid into your Media Super account, and a fixed-dollar amount of: > $20,000 per month if you are an Employer-sponsored member with automatic cover; or > $10,000 per month if you are a Personal account member with automatic cover; or > $25,000 per month if you have underwritten cover. In all cases, the Insurer s liability is limited to payment of a benefit based on the amount of cover for which premiums have been paid to them, or the maximum benefit, whichever is the lesser. The Total Disability benefit will be paid after the expiration of the relevant waiting period when you: > are Totally Disabled for the relevant waiting period; and > at the expiry of the relevant waiting period, remain Totally Disabled. The benefit begins to accrue from the day after the relevant waiting period. It is payable in arrears, and stops at the earliest of: > the end of the maximum benefit period (104 weeks); > the date you attain age 65; > the date of your death; or > the date you are no longer Totally Disabled. Partial Disability benefit If you suffer from a Partial Disability, and the Insurer accepts your claim, Income Protection will pay a Partial Disability benefit. The Partial Disability benefit is a proportion of the Total Disability benefit, and will be paid when you: > have been Totally Disabled for at least seven days out of the first 12 consecutive days of the relevant waiting period; > are Partially Disabled for the balance of the relevant waiting period; and > at the expiry of the relevant waiting period, remain Partially Disabled; or > you have returned to work or are capable of returning to work in a limited capacity after the Insurer has paid a Total Disability benefit which has not ceased as stated above. The Partial Disability benefit is calculated using the following formula: (A B) A x monthly benefit = Partial Disability benefit Where: A is your pre-disability salary B is the greater of the salary you earn, or are capable of earning, for the month that the Partial Disability benefit is payable. The benefit begins to accrue from the date after you are no longer Totally Disabled or after the waiting period. It is payable in arrears, and stops at the earliest of: > the end of the maximum benefit period (104 weeks*); > the date you attain age 65; > the date of your death; > the date you are no longer Partially Disabled; or > the date you are earning, or are capable of earning, a monthly salary equal to or greater than your predisability salary. * This period includes payment of any associated total disability.

14 Super for creative people Important information Nominating a beneficiary You may nominate a beneficiary to receive your benefit in the event of your death. Your beneficiary must either be a dependant or legal personal representative. If you do not have dependants or a legal personal representative, or your binding nomination has lapsed or is invalid, the Media Super Trustee will decide who receives your super benefit. It s therefore important you keep your beneficiaries up to date, or if your personal circumstances change, that you review and update your nominations, so we know what your wishes are. Your Death benefit will generally be paid as a lump sum unless the recipient requests the Fund to pay it as a Media Super pension. You can make either a binding or non-binding nomination: Binding A binding nomination is a binding direction from you to Media Super to pay any death benefit to your estate or to one or more dependants nominated by you and in the proportions that you have specified. To make a binding nomination, please call our Super Helpline on for the relevant form. If you decide to make a binding nomination, it is your responsibility to keep the nomination up to date. Binding death benefit nominations lapse three years from the date you make, confirm or vary your nomination. The legal requirements for a binding nomination to be valid include: > the nomination must be in writing; > you must sign and date the nomination in the presence of two witnesses over age 18 who are not nominated beneficiaries; > any nominated beneficiary must be your dependant at the date of your death; > the proportion of the benefit that will be paid to a nominated beneficiary, or to each nominated beneficiary, is certain or readily ascertainable from the nomination; and > less than three years have elapsed since you made the nomination. Non-binding A non-binding nomination means that Media Super will take your nomination of beneficiaries into account, but will not be bound to follow it. To make a non-binding nomination, you must complete the Nominating beneficiaries form in accordance with the instructions set out in the form. A dependant for superannuation law purposes includes: > your spouse (including de facto and same-sex couples); > your children (including natural, step or adopted and children of your spouse). In order to receive the benefit tax-free, children must be under the age of 18. A child over the age of 18 can only receive the benefit tax-free if they are financially dependent on you or have a disability (as defined by legislation); > a person financially dependent on you at the date of death; and > a person in an interdependency relationship with you. An interdependency relationship exists if: > two people have a close personal relationship and they live together; and > one or each of them provides the other with financial support; and > one or each of them provides the other with domestic support and personal care. An interdependency relationship also exists if two people have a close personal relationship and the other requirements are not satisfied because either or both of them suffer from physical, intellectual or psychiatric disability or because they are temporarily living apart. How to make a claim If you would like to make a claim for a: > Total and Permanent Disablement benefit; > Terminal Illness benefit; > Death benefit; or > Income Protection benefit contact us and we will send you the appropriate forms. You should make a claim as soon as reasonably possible. For Income Protection benefits, a claim should be submitted within 30 days of the date of your disability. Any delay may prejudice the assessment of your claim. Single insurance arrangement If an administrative error or contributions from multiple employers result in multiple accounts with insurance cover in your name, you are restricted to claiming insurance benefits under one such account only, and the Insurer will not otherwise be liable.
