What does our SMSF Life Insurance cover provide?

Cover Types

NobleOak offers Life Cover, TPD (any occupation) and Disability Income insurance through superannuation.


Your insurance premiums are paid using superannuation contributions, which are often tax-deductible. Check with your accountant.

Tax on benefits

Following a claim, Life cover benefits paid by the SMSF to a financially dependant beneficiary are generally tax-free. Benefits paid to non-financially dependant beneficiaries typically attract tax.

Retirement savings

Insurance premiums paid reduce your retirement savings, so you may want to make additional super contributions.

Cover Types

NobleOak offers a full range of covers, including Life Cover, TPD, Trauma Insurance and Income Protection Insurance.


You pay your insurance premiums from your after-tax income.

Tax on benefits

Benefits paid are generally tax-free when paid to your nominated beneficiaries.

Retirement savings

Your retirement savings are not effected by your insurance premiums.

Policies, terms and conditions vary between Insurance Providers, so it’s always advised to read the Product Disclosure Statement (PDS) and compare covers before you apply for Life Insurance. Because superannuation is a complex area which changes from time to time, and each person’s tax situation is specific, we suggest you obtain tax or accounting advice when considering your taxation affairs in the superannuation context.
