Why super is important

Your key to a better life

A reliable income is one of your most valuable assets. It is the means to long-term financial independence, and day-to-day peace of mind.

We all know that super allows you to create a retirement income, but by taking out insurance cover through your super fund you can also go some way to protecting you and your family against the effects of loss of income if you are unable to work. 

It's what we call creating an 'income for life' and it's central to our purpose as your fund.

It provides financial independence

Retirement is an opportunity to do the things you’ve always wanted. Super gives you the freedom to travel, socialise, and enjoy life without total reliance on the government age pension. 

It's your salary in retirement

Australians are living longer than ever. The average lifespan is now 82 years, which means approximately 20 years of retirement. Super provides a regular income during this time, so it’s important you have enough.
