By cancelling or opting out of insurance, you: 

  • may have less cover than you need
  • won't be able to make a claim for insurance benefits for events or conditions that arise after your cover has been cancelled
  • will no longer have insurance costs deducted from your account, once your final costs have been deducted.

If you’re replacing your cover, you shouldn’t cancel your existing cover until the replacement cover is in place.

Get more cover

If you don't have cover or would like to increase your cover, you can apply for fixed cover. If accepted, any default cover you have will convert to fixed cover and be combined with the amount you applied for. If you fix your cover, you won't be eligible for default cover in the future.

Once you have fixed cover, the amount of cover you have will stay the same while the amount you pay for the cover will change as you get older.

To apply to increase your cover, you can:

Convert default cover to fixed cover

If you have default cover, you can convert this to fixed cover and keep the same amount of cover over time. Once you have fixed cover, the cost of you cover will change each year to reflect your age. If you fix your cover, you will not be eligible for default cover in the future.

To change your default cover to fixed cover, you can:
