Hi Lynn, it will depend on the type of cover you have in your Rest super. If it's life insurance and you believe you need it, you can contact Rest and let them know you would like to keep it active. This will need to be done each year for the fund to keep it active.
If you have Life and TPD cover, you may want to consider whether you need the TPD as you are not working. (TAP claims are based on your ability to work ever again, which is hard if you aren't actually working). I hope that helps.

Hi Lynne,

I just shared a video on exactly this topic.


You can elect to keep the insurance if you want to. But if you don’t elect to keep it, it will be cancelled from July 1.

All the best.
