Find & combine your super

According to the Australian Tax Office (ATO) around 45% of all working Australians have more than one superannuation account#.

If you are one of them you’re probably paying multiple sets of fees which could be eating away at your super savings.

Figures revealed by the ATO also show that Australians pay $532 a year on average in fees and charges for a low cost account.*

Getting your super together means you could:

  • Save time. Keeping your super together means you only have one account to keep track of.
  • Take control of your investment. Having your super in one place makes it easier to manage your investment strategy.
  • Save costs by paying one set of fees. If you have more than one super fund, you’re probably paying multiple sets of fees. Transferring your other super into your VicSuper account means you will pay just one set of fees which could mean more in your account over the long term.

Let us get your super together

VicSuper can take the hard work out of tracking down all of your super accounts and rolling them together, simply by providing us with your tax file number (TFN) and consent.

Step 1. Provide TFN consent

Provide consent for us to use you tax file number online here or over the phone by calling Member Centre on 1300 366 216.  

Step 2. Tell us what to rollover  

We’ll search for your other funds and then email or send you pre-populated forms with details of the funds that the ATO records as belonging to you.    All you need to do then is let us know which funds you want to rollover into your VicSuper account, and we’ll do the rest.

You should check the implications on fees and tax, and any benefits (eg insurance) you may have with your other super funds. VicSuper doesn’t charge entry or exit fees, but some funds do.
