Low fees

The old saying “every little bit helps” is especially true with super. Sunsuper fees are amongst the lowest in the industry. We keep them low by returning our profits to our members, and we don’t charge entry fees or pay commissions to advisers.

Our members only pay a small administration fee out of their super each week, which goes towards having the best minds looking after your money. Then there’s just the costs that have been incurred by the investment option you select.

Competitive fees and no commissions
