Insurance & Cover
Sometimes the unexpected happens. We’re there if it does. At CSC, we want to make sure that if you aren’t able to work for any reason, you and your family can still feel secure. You’re in safe hands.
We've got you covered
From weekly bills to unexpected expenses and debt, we know that everyday life costs. At CSC, we've got you covered with lifePLUS, our flexible approach to Income Protection and Death and TPD insurance.
When the unexpected happens, we want you to be sure you’re in safe hands. Living a full life comes with risk. Whether it’s an injury that takes you out of work for a few months, or something more serious or even permanent, you and your family deserve to be provided for. That’s what lifePLUS is for.
With lifePLUS, you have two main types of cover:
1. Income Protection
This is cover for when you’re injured or get sick for a period of time. Not only does this protect your income, you might also receive cover for rehabilitation programs and career support to get back to work, in a way that works for you.
2. Death and TPD (Total and Permanent Disability)
This is cover for you and your family if you get injured permanently or die. If you aren’t able to work again, a lump sum is paid to help cover the cost of living and any expenses or debts you might have had before.
You can get insured for these three – Death, Death & TPD, and Income Protection – separately or in any combination.
As with all insurance policies, premiums, restrictions and exclusions may apply. Further information is available in the Insurance and Your PSSap Super booklet.

CSC will adopt the Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice.
The 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 will come 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 implementation of the Code, including a timeline, will be published on our website over the coming months.
