From 1 July 2019, a new law requires LGIAsuper to cancel the insurance cover of members who have an inactive superannuation account. The legislation is designed to protect superannuation balances by ensuring that members have insurance arrangements that are suitable for them.

The new law considers your account to be inactive if there have not been any contributions or rollovers into your LGIAsuper account for a continuous period of 16 months.
