The Life Insurance Code of Practice is a series of customer service standards that all life insurers who are members of the Financial Services Council (FSC) need to comply with. These standards cover sales and marketing practices, underwriting and claims and are designed to protect you.
Suncorp Life Insurance policies are issued by TAL, who played a key role in creating the Life Insurance Code of Practice. Suncorp Life is committed to delivering the best possible customer service standards and support the Financial Services Council in promoting and monitoring the Code of Practice.

COVID-19 Life Insurance
If you’re an existing Suncorp Insurance customer with Income Protection or Life Protect Insurance, please call 13 11 55 for information on how COVID-19 may affect your cover.
Receiving a COVID-19 vaccination approved for use by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia will not affect the cover under your existing insurance policy. Suncorp Life, Income Protection and Funeral Insurance policies do not include exclusions or limitations related to COVID-19 including vaccine related side-effects. If you were to experience sickness or injury after receiving the COVID-19 vaccination, a claim can still be lodged for a benefit under your policy and your claim will be assessed and is subject to the terms and conditions of your policy. This includes doctors, nurses, health professionals, police and people working in quarantine hotels and services.
Suncorp Income Protection policies provide a benefit if you suffer an illness or injury and you are unable to work, in line with policy terms and conditions. Therefore, if your employer mandates that you are required to be vaccinated for COVID-19 and you are restricted from working as a result of choosing not to be vaccinated, you will not be entitled to make a claim against your policy for being unable to work if you are not suffering an illness or injury that is preventing you from working in your usual occupation or performing your usual daily activities.
