Cover can be renewed until the policy anniversary following your 75th birthday, but the maximum monthly benefit amount is limited to $3,000 once you have reached 65 years of age.

    If you are made involuntarily unemployed, a range of terms and conditions apply so read the PDS (Product Disclosure Statements).
