Early access to super

While superannuation is a long-term investment, usually only accessed in retirement, the Government has recognised superannuation may assist you through this time of uncertainty.

Take advantage of salary sacrifice

This can be a great way to boost your super balance and pay less tax overall. Salary sacrificed super contributions are classified as employer super contributions, rather than employee contributions. If you make super contributions through a salary sacrifice agreement, these contributions are taxed in the super fund at a maximum rate of 15%. Generally, this tax rate is less than your marginal tax rate.

My super investment options

If you do not make an investment choice when you join Bendigo SmartStart Super, or you select Bendigo MySuper as your investment options, your account will be attributed to Bendigo MySuper and your money will be invested as detailed below.

The Bendigo MySuper investment option is comprised of three age-based life stages; please click the fund link below to see the Product Dashboard for the relevant life investment:

Your account is automatically allocated to the appropriate investment based on your age. When you reach the age of the next life stage, future contributions will be automatically invested in the next life stage investment, with your account balance switched into that next life stage investment option on or around 31 December of that year. This means the investment risk automatically reduces as you get older.

If you no longer wish to be invested in the Bendigo MySuper investment option and wish to make your own investment choice, you can do this at anytime by making an investment switch either online or in writing to us.

Investment strategies

An investment strategy is what guides your investment decisions. It is based on your future income or capital needs, how long you want to invest for, and how much risk you can live with.
