For most people, your employer is required to pay an amount equal to 9.5% of your ordinary times earnings into your super account.
Plus, most employees can also choose the super fund where their employer contributes.
The good news is that it’s now easier to choose the super fund that best suits you. You can quickly compare fees across a range of major super funds.
Or, for a more detailed comparison, you can use an online comparison tool from a super funds ratings house, like Chant West's AppleCheck. This will quickly and clearly show you how Sunsuper and other funds compare across a range of features.
Once you’ve made your decision, to make sure your employer is contributing into your Sunsuper account, simply complete the Selecting Sunsuper form [PDF 104KB] and give it to your employer.
And don’t forget, if you want your employer to make additional contributions, you can do so through salary sacrificing. This is a great way to boost the balance of your super account by having your employer put extra into super from your pre-tax salary. This means you get more super and could pay less tax… a win/win!
