Super advice - manage one of your biggest assets

Superannuation is money that will let you enjoy the time of your life when the time comes to retire, so take control of your super today!

Your superannuation is likely to be one of your most important financial assets, outside of your ability to earn an income or property, and it is designed specifically to provide you with money to live on in retirement.

The money you have in super is taxed at a rate which is generally lower than money you invest outside of super. Furthermore, you have the flexibility to invest your super money in a number of different assets, in the same way you can with your non-super money.

It’s your money and that’s why it makes sound financial sense to take control of your super today. A good place to start is to ensure the super fund you use suits your needs. Decisions on how your money is invested in super, as well as when and how much to contribute above any employer contributions, are all important.

The choices made in regards to your super today will affect the amount of funds you have available to enjoy life after work. So it’s never too early to start understanding how you can maximise your super in order to produce the results you want.

Your Mortgage Choice financial adviser can guide you through all the decisions you need to make with your super. By getting to know you – and what you want in the future, we can provide tailored advice, tracking your progress at every stage and helping you fine-tune your super strategy to achieve your goals.

The important thing is to start today!

Things to consider

What’s so special about super?

Everything! During our working life, your employer makes contributions to your super fund. How easy is that? This money is invested in the way that you choose, giving your super savings the benefit of compounding investment returns – which means you can generate returns over time on your reinvested earnings.

Money for a rewarding retirement

When you retire, your super offers a source of cash to fund the lifestyle you want to lead in your retirement years, whether that be taking a world trip, renovating your home, exploring new hobbies or simply enjoying a relaxing lifestyle.

Super is tax-friendly

Money held in super is lightly taxed. This is a real plus because more of your money goes to work investing for your future. Super can also be a tax effective way to pay your life insurance premiums.

Pick your investment strategy

Just because your super is designed for retirement doesn't mean you don't have control over the money today. You can – and should, let your fund know how you'd like your super invested by nominating the investment strategy that suits your goals.

It’s worth choosing the fund that suits you

The vast majority of workers have the freedom to choose their own super fund, and it’s definitely something worth doing. It will help you keep track of your super and let you and your family enjoy the protection of a low cost life insurance strategy that has been tailored to meet your needs.

Consider adding a bit extra

You have the flexibility to add extra contributions to your super, and this is an easy way to grow your nest egg over time. Even small additional contributions can grow to something big by the time you retire.
