What is MySuper?

MySuper is an initiative of the Australian Government and means that super funds, like those chosen by your employer, are required to offer a product that is simple, cost-effective, and provides minimum levels of insurance cover to eligible members.

A MySuper account offers a single investment option which is simple, cost effective and easily comparable with other MySuper accounts. 

A MySuper account is the default account within a super fund. This means that if a new member joining the fund doesn’t make an investment choice, they will become a MySuper member.



Your employer is required to pay your super guarantee contributions into a super fund that offers a MySuper account, unless you have chosen a super fund to have your super guarantee contributions paid into.
