  • Employees now have more super choice

    New workplace determinations and enterprise agreements made on or after 1 January 2021 must offer employees the right to choose the super fund to which you pay their compulsory super contributions.

    Once a new determination or agreement is in place, your organisation must offer choice of super fund to:

    • existing employees who request to choose their super fund
    • all new employees.

    All employees can nominate their chosen fund by completing the standard choice form through ATO online services linked to their myGov account. Alternatively, you can give your employees a Superannuation (super) standard choice form to complete.

    You must then pay employees' compulsory super to their nominated fund.

    If an employee doesn't nominate a fund, you can continue to pay their super to the same fund you previously contributed to, or into your default fund.
