Many indigenous Australians face challenges accessing and engaging with their super, resulting in poor retirement outcomes.
To address this, AustralianSuper has worked with CAAMA (Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association), Australia’s largest Aboriginal media organisation, to produce a seven-part series, discussing the basics of superannuation and insurance as they relate to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
The series aims to teach Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders how to engage with their super – to know where it is, how much they have, how to access it, their insurance benefits and where to get more information.
Presenters include Darryl Florance, AustralianSuper’s Business Partnership & Education Manager in the Northern Territory, Katie Le Cras, AustralianSuper’s Head of Operations – Member Experience & Advice, Nathan Boyle – Indigenous Outreach Manager from the Australian Securities and Investments Commission and Graham Whyte – Assistant Commissioner for Superannuation at the Australian Tax Office.
The program will air on CAAMA and features one half hour episode each week commencing 15 April 2019.
