Insurance & super
Superannuation supports your lifestyle when you retire. Insurance is an important way of protecting your quality of life – right now.
How it works
You can apply for insurance through Verve Super, or arrange cover through another provider. It’s up to you. Insurance through Verve is is paid from your Verve Super account and provided by the insurer AIA Insurance Limited – we don’t receive any payment or commission from AIA.

You may want to speak with a financial advisor about finding the best insurance cover for you.
