Consolidating your super

Education HUB article

5 minute read

Are you paying too much?

Join the 12 million Australians currently saving for their future by not paying multiple fees on more than one super account.

ATO figures show about 74% of Australians are holding one super account4.

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.
