New laws may impact your insurance cover and/or APSS membership

Under the Government’s ‘Protecting Your Super’ package, many Spouse and Rollover members could automatically lose their insurance cover from as early as 1 July 2019 if they have an account that is classified to be 'inactive' and don't do anything about it. Also, certain members with an account balance of less than $6,000 might lose their APSS membership from as early as 31 October 2019 under these new rules. We have written to members who may be affected, and we will alert those who may be at risk in future. See pages 4-5 of your latest Insight member newsletter for more details on these important developments.
