Taking control of your super
A lot has happened over the last few years. That’s an understatement. For some of us, this has meant a yearning to lean into what we can control to better prepare for the future.
When it comes to your super, the good news is that there’s plenty YOU can do now to put yourself in a better position for later.
Here’s 5 ways you can take control of your super:
1. Register or log in to MemberOnline
Do you know how much super you have? Here’s an opportunity to dive in and have a look around your personalised dashboard. See your super balance, make sure your employer is making contributions (if relevant), check what investment option(s) your super’s invested in, check your beneficiary nomination(s) and that your contact details are correct and ensure your insurance is adequate for your needs. Go there now.
2. Do some sums with our super calculators
Keen to understand the benefits of making extra super contributions, see how much income you might have after you wind-down work or learn how much insurance cover might cost? These easy-to-use calculators are a great way to help you plan for your future.
3. Attend an educational event or webinar
You have access to our events and webinars on a range of topics. These include how to build your super savings, transition to retirement (TTR), planning for life after work, and living well in retirement. Go to Events and webinars to explore our upcoming events and register for one (or more!) that suit you.
4. Learn some super basics at our Education Hub

5. Access financial advice
Remember, you’re never alone on your super journey. If you’d like guidance from a professional adviser, or you’re just after some reassurance, book a call-back with a financial planner. You have access to super-related advice over the phone* at no-extra cost. This can be an opportunity to check your investment choice is aligned to your goals, you’ve got the right amount of insurance cover for your circumstances, get an income projection and set some super goals. Or, if your financial situation is more complex or you have other investments or debt, we can provide advice on your whole financial situation too.^Read more about your advice options.
