Fees and taxes

Fees

Just like most super funds, we deduct some money from your account to cover the cost of looking after and investing your money.

Because we’re a profit-to-members fund, our fees are set to cover our costs only. We don’t pay dividends to shareholders which means we return more to you through lower fees and charges. Before making any decision about your pension, it’s important to consider that fees are only one part of the bigger picture. What’s best for you will depend on your personal situation.

1 If your account balance for a product offered by the superannuation entity is less than $6,000 at the end of the entity’s income year, the total combined amount of administration fees, investment fees and indirect costs charged to you is capped at 3% of the account balance. Any amount charged in excess of that cap must be refunded.

2 Investment fees and costs include an amount of 0.00%-0.07% for performance fees. The calculation basis for this amount is set out in the Pension PDS. If you're invested in the Lifecycle Investment Strategy, you'll be invested in the investment option relevant to your age: High Growth (under age 50); Growth (aged 50-54) or Balanced (aged 55 and above). For more information about the Lifecycle Investment Strategy read our Lifecycle Investment Strategy (PDF) factsheet.

3 We may apply other fees and costs which relate to family law splits, answering subpoenas, advice fees for personal advice and term deposit early withdrawal fees. See the ‘Additional explanation of fees and costs’ in the Pension PDS for further details.
