Combine your super
How many super accounts do you have - Two? Three? Four or more? If you've had more than one job, chances are you've got many accounts which are costing you money.
Combine all your super into your AustralianSuper account and avoid extra fees. By combining old accounts into AustralianSuper, you pay one low administration fee of $1.50 per week.
Having one account makes it easier to keep track of your super, and you’ll only receive statements from one fund.
- To combine your super, just complete a transfer form for each account you want to transfer and we’ll do the rest, including contacting your other super fund/s.
Your other fund must process the transfer within 30 days of receiving it. We’ll follow up with them regularly to make sure this happens and let you know when the transfer is complete.
Some funds may charge you an exit fee for transferring your account. It’s a good idea to check with your other fund/s to find out if they have any exit fees or penalties.
It’s also important to check if the transfer affects any insurance you have with your old fund.
Adding to your super
For most people, the 9% contribution their employer pays into their super won’t provide enough to live comfortably in retirement.
Making extra contributions to your super can help provide the security you need to enjoy life once you stop working.
There are two main ways of making extra contributions to your super:
- Personal contributions made by you from your after-tax salary
- Salary sacrifice contributions made by you from your before-tax salary by agreement with your employer.
You should consider what mix of employer contributions, salary sacrifice and personal contributions is best for you.
The AustralianSuper Contributions Calculator can help you do this now.
