Insurance through your PSS membership can help to protect your lifestyle and support your family in the unlikely event of injury to you or even your death.
What are my insurance options?
Contributing PSS members receive automatic permanent invalidity or death cover at no extra cost; you are covered 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
You are covered for a benefit based on your entitlement had you worked to age 60. Limited benefit members accrue benefits only up to the date of retirement or death – no future service is taken into account (it is outlined in your Member Statement).
New PSS members must complete a Confidential Medical and Personal Statement (CMAPS) form [PDF: 817 KB] and provide it to their personnel section within 14 days of commencing their PSS membership.
Some members may be entitled to increase their death and invalidity cover; your employer will pay half your premium cost for this extra cover.
