Why consolidate?

Your super is your savings for your retirement. Multiple super accounts may mean you are paying more than one set of fees and insurance premiums.

Most people are eligible to choose where their employer pays their super contributions. This means you have control to choose your super fund and take it with you when you change jobs.

Take control of your super and understand what fund works best for you. Consider consolidating all your funds and join the majority of Australians paying for one set of fees.

Before consolidating your super, it’s important you check how doing so could impact your current benefits such as insurance.

If you choose Bendigo SmartStart Super, you may wish to bring your insurance with you. Call us or complete our Insurance Transfer Form before you consolidate your super or cancel any existing insurance cover.

How to consolidate your super and start saving today

Do you already have a Bendigo SmartStart Super account? If you know your super fund details you can use our simple Super Transfer Form to consolidate your super.

Alternatively, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) makes it easy to consolidate using their online consolidation tool.

If you have any questions, you can call us on 1800 033 426 or email us at superannuation@bendigobank.com.au
