KIDS' ACCIDENT COVER FAQS

At what age does cover end?
Cover ends on your child's 22nd birthday. To discuss cover options for after your child turns 22, call us on 1800 560 855.

How can I cover all my kids?
You can cover all your children if they're under the age of 17 when you apply. Each child will need their own policy. A policy costs $1.25 a week, per child (for children aged under 17). If you have 2 children and you want them both covered, it'll cost you $2.50 a week.

How do premiums work for Kids’ Accident Cover?
Your Kids’ Accident Cover premium will not change until your child turns 17. After this, your premiums will increase to a new age band and these premiums will apply until your policy ceases when your child turns 22.

From time to time, we may also change the Kids’ Accident Cover premium for all policyholders to allow us to cover rising claims costs and better support our members’ needs. You’ll be notified at least 30 days in advance if your premium will change.
