Changes to SmartGuard credit card repayment insurance

From 1 December 2016, there will be a reduction in the premium you pay for SmartGuard. Here's what's changing:

1. Your premiums: Your premiums will reduce. Currently, you are paying 78c for every $100 (pro-rated) on the amount you owe on your account. Your new premium charge will be 74c for every $100 (pro-rated) that you owe.

2. Your policy document: The policy document has been updated to reflect the new premium charge. A copy of the policy document can be found here.

Important things to note

While your premium and policy document are changing, your benefits, level of cover and who is covered will not be changing. Your SmartGuard cover will end if you choose to cancel it or once you've paid off what you owe on your account and your account is closed.
