What type of account can we help you join today?
If you’re joining the workforce, changing jobs or switching from another fund, you’ll want to open a superannuation account. If you’re getting ready to retire, a Choice Income account can help make the most of your super after you stop working. And if you’re looking to make a transition from work to retirement, a TTR Income account might be right for you.

1. Start the join form
You can join online and save your progress as you go. If you need to take a break you can resume the process later.
2. Personal details
Have your personal details at the ready such as your email address. Plus, we recommend providing your Tax File Number (TFN) and your employer's ABN - if you’re working. Providing your TFN when joining is optional, however choosing not to means you may be taxed more.
Choose how you’d like your super invested. We offer a range of conservative and aggressive investment options to suit your situation. If you don’t make a choice, your account will be invested in the Balanced option. For a snapshot of the Balanced option’s performance, head to the Our Performance page or our Investment options page.
Insurance cover is available through your super account. If you’re eligible, we’ll provide you a basic level of cover when you join. And you can request to change your insurance cover through the AustralianSuper mobile app.
One last thing to consider is nominating a beneficiary. That’s who you’d like to receive your account balance when you die. If you’re not sure who that is or would like more time to research the options available, it’s ok to skip this step for now and nominate someone later.
Once you’ve joined, download the ATO’s Standard choice form, fill it out and give it to your employer.

4. Get your super in one place
