About Westscheme Division
AustralianSuper’s Westscheme Division provides super for people living and working* in Western Australia.

When you first join, we provide automatic Death and Total & Permanent Disablement cover and the option to apply for Income Protection if you want to protect your income.
* The details you provide about yourself and your employer when you apply determine which division of AustralianSuper you are eligible to join. If you are located in Western Australia and work for an eligible employer you can join the Westscheme Division of AustralianSuper.
