Super to suit the way you work

Embracing new ways of working?
Make sure your super keeps up.

More Australians are running their own businesses, freelancing, contracting, or joining the gig economy. If you're part of this change, it's important to remember that super will still play a big part in your retirement. There are small steps you can take now that could make a big difference to your future.

A little now could be a lot in the future

Even if retirement feels far away, saving for your future now can pay off. By adding to your super now7, you could enjoy a more comfortable lifestyle when you finish working. And with power of compound interest, the earlier you invest, the longer your super has to grow.

A fund that works as hard as you do

With over 3.3 million members8 and a history of strong, long-term performance2, we’re Australia’s largest3 and most trusted super fund4. We're a profit-for-member fund. We don't pay profits or dividends to shareholders, so the money we make is for members.

How your fund performs over the long-term will make a big difference to your savings for the future. At AustralianSuper, we focus on what that performance means for the net benefit of your super. That is, what your overall financial position could be after taking away admin and investment fees – it’s one of the best ways to see how funds stack up.

Net benefit to 31 December 2023. Net benefit refers to investment earnings less administration, investment fees and costs, transaction costs and taxes. Investment returns are not guaranteed. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future returns.

The comparison shows what a member would have for 15 years to 31 December 2023, in addition to a $50,000 starting balance and employer contributions, assuming they started with a $50,000 annual salary9.
