At the start of each academic year, we check if your child will be staying on your cover or getting their own membership.

Please let us know which of the below applies to your child by 1 March 2020.

1. Still a full-time student, trainee or apprentice

Your child can stay on your membership as a Student Dependant if they're:

  • under 25
  • a full-time student, trainee or apprentice
  • not married or in a de-facto relationship.

What to do

Update their details at Online Member Services before 1 March 2020 (to make sure they stay on your membership).

  1. Log in to Online Member Services
  2. Go to My membership > People covered
  3. Select your child, and click Edit
  4. Update the student declaration section and Submit your changes.

Don't have Online Member Services set up? You can update their details via this form.

2. Not a full-time student, trainee or apprentice

If your child doesn’t meet the Student Dependant criteria, consider:

Extended Family cover

Your child can stay on your membership until their 25th birthday (if they’re not married or in a de-facto relationship)~. To learn more about upgrading to Extended Family Cover, call us on 1300 727 538 before 1 March 2020.

~Extended Family Cover isn't an option if you're on StarterPak or Emergency Ambulance cover.

Their own cover

If it's time for your child to get their own membership, we're here to help them understand their cover options. You can:

  • submit a contact form, and we'll get in touch with them directly
  • call us on 1300 727 538 and we'll explore what's right for them.

Here are a couple of offers you can take advantage of:

We'll give your child one free month of cover* as a welcome gift. And, if they join within 2 months of coming off your membership on an equivalent (or lower) level of Hospital and/or Extras cover, they won't need to re-serve waiting periods. Plus, if they decide to join with a higher level of Extras cover, we'll waive the 2 & 6 month waits on those Extras services too.
