Insurance fees

Affordable Insurance fees

We offer competitive, low fees for Death and TPD insurance. We’re able to do this as we purchase “group” insurance on behalf of our members. These fees are not generally available to the general public.

Insurance fees are paid through your super account

Your REI Super insurance fees are paid through your super account. So you don’t have to worry about paying another monthly bill and still have peace of mind knowing that you are covered.

Level of cover

We offer both unitised and fixed levels of cover. The insurance premiums you pay will differ depending on which level of insurance cover you take.

See more for income protection insurance fees.

Unitised cover 

With unitised cover, you pay a set price for each unit of cover you hold. However the value of the benefit will increase and decrease as you get older. Our default insurance covers a minimum of 4 units. You may apply to increase your level of cover at any time to a maximum of 20 units.

  Death and TPD   Death only cover
Standard $1.42 per week $0.71 per week
Non-standard $2.77 per week $1.38 per week
  • Standard option - is available to members whose employer is a Participating Member – (where your employer uses REI Super as their default Superannuation Fund). 
  • Non- standard - Direct members (those members whose employer uses a different default Superannuation Fund) may still be eligible for the standard option depending on the type of work you do. If you are unsure call our Helpline on 1300 13 44 33.
