What is death cover?

Death cover provides a lump sum benefit for your dependants if you pass away.

Terminal illness cover is included in your death cover, so you may be able to claim an advance payment of your benefit if you’re diagnosed with a terminal illness. 

In most cases, death cover is provided automatically to members of Catholic Super who join us as employer-sponsored members. But if you don’t receive death cover automatically, you can still apply for cover. You can also change or cancel your existing cover at any time.

To make a death claim

Making a death claim typically comes at a very challenging time. So we understand the very real need to make the process as simple and timely as possible.
