Yes, your Loan Protection cover decreases as your loan balance goes down. Your premium will stay the same though, as it’s calculated based on your original loan amount and duration.

Your cover won’t automatically increase if you top up your loan.

To change your level of cover call us on 13 3982 between 8am - 8pm, Monday - Friday (Sydney/Melbourne time) or visit any Commonwealth Bank branch.
