Occupation Declaration – Insurance

  • (DD/MM/YYYY)

  • Eligibility Questions Please complete the questions below to determine if you qualify as a white collar or professional worker. If you do qualify, you will receive a higher Death & TPD insured benefit at no extra cost.

  • Are you able to carry out the identifiable duties of your current and normal occupation on a full-time basis without restriction due to illness or injury (even if you are not currently working on a full-time basis)? Full-time basis is considered to be at least 30 hours per week.
  • Are the duties of your occupation limited to professional, managerial, administrative, clerical, secretarial or similar 'white collar' tasks which do not involve manual work and are undertaken entirely (or at least 80%) within an office environment (excluding travel time from one office environment to another)?
  • If 'Yes' to questions a - b, you qualify as a white collar worker.

  • Are you earning in excess of $100,000 per annum?
  • Do you hold tertiary qualifications and are you a member of a professional institute or registered by a government body?


    Are you a member of your organisation's executive leadership team with more than 10 years experience in your industry?
  • If 'Yes' to all questions (a - d), you qualify as a professional worker.

    If you answered 'no' to all of the eligibility questions above, you will not be eligible to change your occupation rating and your existing level of insurance cover will remain unchanged.

  • Opt-in to maintain insurance cover

    I wish to maintain the following types of insurance:
    * Select this option if you want to retain Death cover only.
    ^ Select this option if you have Death cover and TPD cover and you want to retain both.

    Important information to note
    • • By opting-in we will maintain your insurance even if your account is less than $6,000 or inactive for 16 months or more.
    • • By opting-in you acknowledge that you understand the effect this may have on your account balance and you do not require any further information.
    • • Limited cover may apply. Please see your Insurance, Fees and Costs Guide for more information.
    • • When you are at least 25 years old and you have a balance of $6,000 or more, cover will automatically commence (eligibility requirements and limitations may apply).
    • • Insurance fees will be deducted from your account while you have cover.
    • • If you move to another division of the Fund you will need to opt-in again. This could happen, for example, when you leave your employer.
    • • You can change or opt-out of (i.e. cancel) your insurance cover at any time by sending us a completed Request to Change Insurance form, available at or by calling us on 1800 025 241.
