Employer Superannuation

Employer superannuation is also called corporate super or workplace super, and refers to super funds usually only available to employees of a specific employer.

Employees have the choice of opting in to be an employer super fund member, or may choose another fund of their choice.

An employer superannuation fund may also allow access to employee family members, or may allow ex-employees to maintain their fund membership.

Benefits of employer super

Having a corporate super fund for your employees can help:

  • Save time and money – on payroll and business administration.
  • Attract and retain employees – by offering value-add packages with included benefits such as life insurance and free or low-cost superannuation and retirement advice.
  • Increase superannuation savings – with greater flexibility in terms of investment options, thus allowing you to help your employees grow their super savings.

These benefits make employer superannuation an attractive option for businesses and companies seeking to add value to future employment opportunities.

Employer super is a cost-effective means of helping to find and retain quality staff, thus positively impacting the business as a whole.
