Fees and costs in your Income account

As a profit for members fund, we strive to keep our fees and costs low so we can pass on the savings to you.

An administration fee will come out of your Income account to cover our administration costs and like most super funds, an investment fee (depending on your investment option) will apply. However, you'll pay no entry, termination or investment switching fees and there’s no additional fee for regular income payments.

Income account administration fees

Members pay a low administration fee of just $1.50 per week plus 0.10% p.a.* for the first $800,000 of your account balance.

For balances under $6,000 a maximum 3% fee cap applies to all Sunsuper accounts, inclusive of administration fees, investment fees and indirect costs. The calculator does not include the 3% cap for account balances less than $6,000 and it does not include investment fees and indirect costs in its assumption, as this is dependent on how your superannuation is invested.
