Transfer cover from another fund^

You can transfer up to $1 million of existing Death or TPD cover you may hold with your previous super fund to Rest.
Retained division You can stay in Rest Corporate and retain your existing cover when you leave your current employer. On transferring to the retained division, your level of cover will be fixed and the cost of insurance will change to reflect your change in employment.

Special offer for new members

You can increase your level of Death and TPD Default Cover or reduce your IP waiting period without having to provide any health evidence (limits and conditions apply) within 120 days of joining Rest Corporate (provided you have also joined Rest Corporate within 120 days of first being eligible). Call 1300 300 778 to change your level of cover.

Note: Death and TPD cover are linked benefits, ie payment of a TPD benefit reduces your Death and TPD cover by the same amount. Additional terms apply as set out in the Rest Corporate Insurance Guide. 

# Your employer may have chosen a different level of Default cover design that differs from Rest’s default package. Your employer may not include IP as part of the default package of insurance. If your employer has chosen Nil Income Protection cover, you may still apply for cover subject to underwriting and acceptance by the insurer.

* Subject to underwriting and approval by the insurer unless applied for as part of the Special Offer outlined above. Note that if your employer has chosen a 10% default option, the Special offer only applies to increase cover up to 20% for Death and TPD. If your employer has chosen a 90 day Income Protection Waiting Period, the Special Offer only applies to a change to a 60 day Waiting Period.
