Understanding super fundamentals

  • core purpose of super
  • defined benefit versus accumulation style super
  • types of contributions and limits
  • how super can be invested
  • insurance within superannuation and beneficiaries

On-campus consultations

Whether close to retirement or with plenty of time to grow super savings, UniSuper’s Bedford Park consultant Melanie Carvill is available to answer questions about UniSuper accounts, assist with UniSuper paperwork and recommend related services and tools.

On-campus services are provided at no additional cost. Make an appointment

Financial advisers Briohny Powell and Damian Brunello can provide personal financial advice on specific topics – including insurance, investments or superannuation – or on finances and retirement planning generally. Their services are quoted up front so it’s clear exactly what staff will pay – with the first consultation free of charge.

Congratulations new CC member

The Consultative Committee (CC) is the voice of UniSuper members and provides a forum for members and employers to discuss important issues and make key decisions associated with the governance and operation of the UniSuper Fund. It is responsible for nominating four directors to the UniSuper Limited Board, made up of members appointed by, and representing, UniSuper’s shareholder employers and university staff.

Taicea Agnew was recently elected as a professional staff representative, with Professor Catherine Abbott representing academic staff. Both members are available if staff would like to discuss UniSuper-specific issues. Contact Professor Catherine Abbott or Taicea Agnew.
