Ordering new PDSs and transition arrangements

Supporting our enhanced product suite, new Product Disclosure Statements (effective 15 May 2017) are now available for:

  • Zurich Wealth Protection
  • Zurich Active; and
  • Zurich Sumo.

The Wealth Protection and Active PDSs will be accompanied by an Insurance-only Category PDS for membership of the Zurich Master Superannuation Fund.

A new, single Zurich Insurance Application form has been developed for Wealth Protection, Active and Sumo. The form includes the Life Insured’s Statement and a host of underwriting questionnaires, providing all the necessary paperwork you need. You’ll get supplies of the new form automatically when you order PDSs.

As we transition to the new PDSs and Application form, we are able to accept old application forms (relating to previous PDSs) which were signed prior to 15 May, up to and including 14 June.

You can order the new PDSs through our ZLife Portal.

Upgrade guarantee in action

Zurich continually reviews trauma definitions for currency and clarity and will pass back any improved definitions to existing policy holders for new events.  This will also apply to the terminal illness definition change, and any other relevant improvements that do not have a cost impact.

Commission changes

We have also taken the opportunity to simplify our commission, with commissions for new Active and Sumo policies aligned with the existing Zurich approach. At the same time, we have added more flexibility to our dial down approach, effectively giving you far more scope to tailor dial-downs to individual circumstances.

Stamp Duty approach

Consistent with the market treatment of stamp duty, we will now charge the applicable rate on a state by state basis for all products (previously we applied an average rate of stamp duty across lump sum policies).
