Student Dependant Information

At the start of every academic year we ask you to update your dependant’s details to confirm whether they can remain covered on your policy as a student dependant.

My dependant is still studying

Your dependant can stay on your membership as a student dependant if they are aged under 25; a full-time student, apprentice or trainee; and not married or in a de-facto relationship.

My dependant is no longer studying

Is it time to get their own cover?


If your dependant is no longer eligible to remain on your membership as a student dependant, then it’s time for them to consider their own cover. If they join within two months of coming off your membership, we’ll give them their second month free. Conditions apply, see terms and conditions below. If you'd like us to get in touch with them to discuss their options, please complete this form.



Not ready to leave the nest?


If your dependant is no longer a student, you may be able to keep them on your membership by upgrading to Extended Family cover. Your dependant can stay on Extended Family cover until their 25th birthday, provided that they are not married or in a de-facto relationship. To get a quote on Extended Family Cover, visit the Live Quote Tool.

I'm already on Extended Family cover

Your dependants can be covered under Extended Family until their 25th birthday, as long as they are not married or in de-facto relationships. If one of your dependants stops studying, we ask that you contact us to confirm that you want them to be covered under Extended Family.

My dependant is turning 25

Once your dependant turns 25, it’s time for them to consider their own cover. If they join within two months of coming off your membership, we’ll give them their second month free. Conditions apply, see terms and conditions below. If you'd like us to get in touch with them to discuss their options, please complete this form.
