What we can offer

Under superannuation law, SMSF trustees are required to regularly consider the insurance needs of their members.

But it’s not just about selecting any cover, insurances within super need to be compliant with the Superannuation Industry Supervision Act 1993.

With CommInsure Protection’s SMSF Plan you get a customised product designed to comply with rules around holding insurance in super. This may reduce the compliance burden on you as a trustee.

Insurance within Super

As the SMSF insurance policy is held within super, premiums can be paid from the SMSF cash account, so you won’t wear the cost from your personal bank account. These premiums may also be tax deductible. Please seek advice from your professional tax adviser.
