  • Super

    Your super is your future. Super, or superannuation, is money set aside during your working life for when you retire. For most people, super begins when you start work and your employer starts paying a portion of your salary or wages into a super fund for you. These payments are known as super guarantee contributions or concessional (pre-tax) contributions.

    Super (including super guarantee from your employer), is your money.

    Super funds invest your money in many things, such as shares, property and managed funds. They may also offer different types of insurance, such as income protection.

    We can help you understand super and work out what you are entitled to. There is also help with growing and keeping track of your super and information on when and how you can access it.
