Make an impact on your super

Take control of your financial future

In between juggling work, home life and social calendars, we tend to push managing our finances to one side – unless we’re talking about paying bills here and there. But giving you and your money a little ‘me time’, can do wonders for your financial future.

Five easy steps to take control of your super

There are little things you can do now like choosing a fund with strong, long-term performance, combining multiple super accounts, and setting up regular extra payments to your account. And the earlier you get started, the better set up for retirement you’ll be.

Most funds offer default insurance for death and disablement when you join or when you become eligible to receive insurance cover. So it’s worth checking your account to see if you have enough cover or paying for too much insurance. Our insurance calculator can help you figure out how much cover you need.
