We’d never suggest going without parmesan on your pasta. Mangiamo!
1. CHECK OUT MEMBERONLINE
Head to our log in page and register for MemberOnline if you haven’t already, or log in to your account. If you haven’t logged into your account for a while, you might need to re-register (for security reasons). Once you’re in, MemberOnline has a wealth of information about your super at your fingertips. You can check your account balance, view your insurance and see how your super is invested. You’re also able to see your recent account activity to confirm you’re receiving your super entitlements from your employer. Plus, if there was any suspicious activity on your account, you’d be able to see it and let us know by calling 1300 360 149 — we take cybersecurity and your privacy seriously and the early release scheme has heightened our attention.
2. GROW YOUR SUPER
Although extra contributions might be the last thing on your mind – if you’re in the position to put in a little extra now, it can make a big difference later. After all, your super will be your main source of income when you finish working full time, so a little extra now can be a big win later. Don’t worry if you can’t right now- it’s good to keep extra contributions in mind for when you can. If you’re thinking you might chip in a bit more to your super and want to know more about the types of contributions and strategies available, head to our Grow your super page. Here you’ll find lots of info to help get you going. Before you get started, it’s worth checking your contributions against the caps in MemberOnline to make sure you don’t pay any additional tax while boosting your balance. Plus, you’ll also find your personalised BPAY® details in MemberOnline, so you’ll be set to go.
3. MANAGE YOUR INVESTMENT OPTIONS AND INSURANCE COVER
You can also use MemberOnline to make changes to your investment options. Before you go ahead, it’s important to know what to consider — we’ve got 13 investment options after all! We’ve prepared a five-step guide to choosing your investment option. Life’s full of surprises (like a pandemic) and it’s well worth being prepared for them as best you can. You can review your existing insurance cover or apply for insurance in MemberOnline. Not sure whether you need or want insurance? Find out more on our website.
