What makes Maritime Super’s insurance different?
These days everyone is selling insurance, from your bank to your supermarket. So you’re probably wondering, what makes Maritime Super’s insurance so special?
It’s created especially for you
As your industry fund, only we understand you and your job. Our insurance is specially tailored to provide great value and cover to people who work in the maritime industry. How? It takes into account the key roles and risks within the industry and offers relevant cover options. It offers automatic acceptance for basic levels of insurance cover based on your membership category.
It’s more affordable
Because we’re buying insurance on behalf of all our members, we’ve negotiated competitive prices with our insurer not necessarily available to you privately. And, these are typically lower insurance premium costs compared to individual insurance policies for maritime workers with similar benefits.
You have no out-of-pocket expenses
Your premiums are paid directly out of your Maritime Super account, not your weekly budget. And in some membership categories, your employer covers the cost.
It’s very flexible
You can change your level of insurance at any time, when your personal circumstances change or you get a pay rise, for example. Your insurance can change with you, based on your cover needs.
