2. Choose an investment option

Your super is your money, so it’s important that it’s invested the way you want.

VicSuper has nine investment options to choose from.

If you don’t choose an investment option when you join, your super is invested automatically in the Growth (My Super) Option.

3. Consolidate your other super

If you have multiple super funds it’s possible you’re paying multiple sets of fees.

Consolidating your super and rolling it all into one low-cost account could save you on fees and paperwork. That could mean more money in your account, and less time spent trying to keep track of your super.

4. Review your insurance

Members who join through their employer receive automatic insurance cover for Death, Total & Permanent Disability and Income Protection.

Other VicSuper FutureSaver members may be eligible to apply for insurance cover up to the age of 70.

5. Nominate a beneficiary

Nominating a beneficiary lets you choose who you would like to receive your super benefit when you die.

There are two ways to nominate a beneficiary:

  1. A non-binding nomination  allows you to nominate who you would prefer to receive your benefit. We use that as a guide when working out who you super is paid to.

    You can nominate non-binding beneficiaries by logging in to your account.
     
  2. binding nomination lets you decide who will receive your benefit (provided they are a dependant or legal representative).

If you don’t nominate a beneficiary, trustee discretion applies.
