VicSuper Scheme is a low-cost benefit plan that allows you to make a range of different contributions and choose from a range of investment options to help you save for your retirement while you're working.
VicSuper Scheme is designed for your employer to pay compulsory superannuation guarantee (SG) contributions into an account on your behalf and also allows you to add to these contributions yourself through a variety of other contribution options.
Additional information about VicSuper Scheme can be found in the VicSuper Member Guide.
