Essentials

Uncomplicated investment options tailored for a range of risk profiles

BT Lifetime Super - Employer Plan is a superannuation plan set up by employers for their employees. Members benefit from reduced administration costs and insurance premiums.

Employer benefits

  • MySuper compliant default options for members
  • Simple and uncomplicated for SMEs
  • Flexible and scalable enough for corporate businesses, with possible fee discounts for larger plans.
  • Straightforward administration with BT Online Employer (BTOE).

One super payment

BTOE allows employers to pay contributions to other super providers via the BT Employer Clearing House Online (ECHO).  Instead of making several super payments to multiple super funds, employers need only make 1 payment through our PayDeduct facility and ECHO will disburse bulk super contributions to employees on your behalf.

BT has created a BT Online Employer Easy User Guide (PDF 1.2MB) for a complete step-by-step guide on how to use BT Online Employer, including how to use our clearing house facility. This user guide is available on the BTOE secure site at all times and is updated each time BTOE receives an enhancement.
