How does my social media presence impact my super claim?

3 min. readlast update: 11.21.2023

 Your social media presence can have implications for your super claim, and it's important to understand how it may be evaluated during the claims process. Here are some key points to consider:

  1. Evidence Gathering: Insurance companies and superannuation funds may use various means to investigate and assess claims, including social media. They might review your public posts, comments, photos, and interactions to gather information relevant to your claim.
  2. Claim Validation: Information from your social media profiles could be used to verify the legitimacy of your claim. If you claim to have a particular injury or condition that prevents you from working, but your social media activity shows you engaging in physical activities contradictory to your claim, it may raise questions about the validity of your claim.
  3. Privacy Considerations: While insurance companies may use publicly available information, they should not access private or restricted content on your social media without your consent. However, it's essential to remember that even seemingly harmless posts can be seen by others and potentially used during the claims process.
  4. Social Media Discretion: It's advisable to be cautious about what you post on social media while your claim is ongoing. Seemingly innocent updates or photos may be misinterpreted and negatively impact your claim. Consider the possible implications before sharing anything related to your health or activities.
