Helping you get ready for retirement

With tools and tailored support to help you plan

More than ever, it’s important to know that your money, for your future, is in trusted hands. As Australia’s largest, most trusted2 fund, we’re here to guide you through planning for retirement during times of change, so you can approach it confidence. We also provide ways to keep your super invested after you retire, so you can benefit from being a member of a top performing super fund.

See how AustralianSuper compares

Even in retirement, our history of strong performance and low fees has given AustralianSuper members an advantage over the long term. And being with a top-performing fund could make a big difference to how long your retirement savings last.

The following table compares AustralianSuper’s Choice Income net benefit against the average super fund and the average retail super fund. It shows how a member’s balance would have grown over 10 years to 30 June 2020, whilst still drawing a regular retirement income. 

Net benefit
  Starting balance Average yearly income payment over 10 years Investment earnings over 10 years (less fees) Balance after 10 years
AustralianSuper Choice Income account Balanced option $300,000 $21,900 $366,100 $419,900
All super funds (average) $300,000 $20,400 $300,900 $356,200
Retail super funds (average) $300,000 $19,600 $276,500 $327,000

Net benefit refers to investment earnings to 30 June 2020 (less admin and investment fees). Investment returns are not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns4.

Investing for you like no other fund can

With over 2.3 million members5, AustralianSuper is the country’s largest super fund. Our size and scale allows us to invest for members like no other fund can – so they can benefit from strong, long-term returns while on the road to economic recovery.

A history of strong, long-term returns

As a top-performing super fund, we’re happy to let our numbers do the talking. AustralianSuper is proudly Australia’s #1 performing super fund over 5, 7, 10 and 15 years based on the Balanced Option1, with an annual return of 9.37% over 35 years.

Ready to retire now?

A Choice Income account based pension can give you regular payments from your super while your savings stay invested. This could mean more investment returns through your retirement and could help boost how long your savings last.

Not quite ready for retirement?

If you’d like to continue working but reduce your working hours, a TTR income account may be a great way to use your super to top up your take home pay. It may also help grow your super and pay less tax while you ease into retirement.
