We’re prepared for the unexpected
If you’re unable to work for any reason, there are many ways that CSC can help you and your family.
We've got you covered
Contributing PSS and CSS members have access to partial invalidity, invalidity retirement, and death benefits at no extra cost. These are superannuation benefits, rather than insurance, so you are automatically covered when you become a PSS or CSS member.
Further information about death and invalidity benefits, including the circumstances in which they are payable and how they are calculated, is available in the Product Disclosure Statement for your fund and the related Death and invalidity benefits booklet available in the product disclosure statement section of our website.
If you are a contributing member of PSS or CSS, you can also access flexible Death, Total and Permanent Disablement and Income Protection through lifePLUS choice if you join PSSap as an Ancillary member. The video below can help you find out more about lifePLUS.
If you found yourself unable to work, for any reason, do you know what support is available to you through super?

Additional coverCSC offers Additional Death and Invalidity Cover (ADIC) to PSS members to help ensure that the cover they have meets their needs, and the needs of their family. You may be entitled to increase the amount you are covered for on death or invalidity by purchasing ADIC insurance, which helps to maximise your PSS benefits should you become permanently incapacitated, or when you die.
The cost of ADIC is also subsidised by your employer at varying rates, depending on your personal risk profile. For example, your employer will contribute half the standard premium if you are identified to be of good health and do not engage in hazardous pursuits.
Further information is available in the ‘Insurance in your super’ section of the PSS Product Disclosure Statement and the Death and invalidity benefits booklet available in the product disclosure statement section of our website.
Superannuation Voluntary Code of PracticeThe Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice (the Code) is the superannuation industry's commitment to high standards when providing insurance to members of superannuation funds.
The overarching objective of the Code is to improve the insurance in superannuation offered and the processes by which insurance benefits are provided.
The Code came into effect on 1st July 2018, and we will have until 30 June 2021 to fully comply.
CSC believes that group insurance through superannuation is a fundamental support mechanism for our members in the time of their greatest need.
Details regarding CSC's implementation of the Code, including a timeline, will be published on our website over the coming months.

Partners for lifeWhen you die, your benefit will be paid to any eligible spouse and/or eligible children. If you have no eligible beneficiaries, your benefit will be paid to your estate.
Contributing PSS and CSS members have the option to take up a PSSap Ancillary membership. As a PSSap Ancillary Member, you are able to complete a Binding Beneficiary Nomination that will allow you to choose the distribution of death benefits from your PSSap Ancillary account balance, including any proceeds of your insurance cover.
