What is Superannuation?

Your super is one of your most valuable assets. Most working Australians have a super account.

The Superannuation Guarantee means your employer pays 9.5 per cent of your salary into your super account throughout your working life. There are also tax incentives for contributing extra via salary sacrifice or personal contributions. Having a good super account which doesn’t charge high fees, helps you make the most of the money you’ve worked so hard for.

Your super is your independence. Get on top of it today with one of ANZ’s super offerings.

 

How can ANZ help?

Super

A superannuation account to fund your retirement.

Pension

A regular income stream to help fund your independence.

Self-managed super

A cash account for self-managed super trustees to manage your money.

Your super. Your choice.

Most employers allow you to choose a super fund, but if you don't choose, they'll pay contributions into a default fund on your behalf. Choose the fund that suits you and look for:

Low fees - fees can vary greatly, and high fees can erode your balance.

Investment choice - choose a fund with investment options that suit your needs.

Insurance - some funds offer tax-effective insurance through super for you and your family.


Super that moves jobs with you.

You’ll probably have multiple jobs over your career. You don’t have to have multiple super accounts.

Choosing a single super account that stays with you from job to job can help you:

  • reduce your costs, with only one set of fees
  • manage your investments more easily
  • keep track of how much money you have in super.
