    Our mission is to help you make the best financial choices so you can lead the life and retirement you want!

    It doesn’t matter at what stage of your life you are at, retirement is always on the horizon. Small changes you make early, can make a big difference to your retirement lifestyle!

    In this session, we discuss simple steps you can take to boost your retirement savings while you’re still working, discuss proposed transition into retirement and what to consider once you retire including Government Age Pension accessibility and what recent legislative changes may mean for your super.

  • Get Your Super Sorted

    At Statewide Super we're here to help you to achieve your financial goals and build your super balance for retirement. One of the ways we do this is through our informative Get Your Super Sorted sessions!

    Topics covered:

    • Growing your super with contributions
    • Investing for your future
    • Insurance cover options
    • Importance of beneficiary nominations
    • Accessing your super
    • Getting the right advice

    This session will provide you with the tools to help boost your super for retirement.

  • Beneficiaries

    Did you know that even if you have a current Will in place, if you haven't made a beneficiary nomination through your super fund, your super may not go to the person/s you wish!

    Thinking about who you’d like to leave your super to, should the worst happen, can be difficult. But leaving clear instructions can make it easier for your loved ones to manage this process.

    Topics covered:

    • Making a beneficiary nomination with your super fund
    • Who you can nominate as a beneficiary
    • The two types of beneficiary nominations available
    • What happens if you don't make a nomination
  • Investment Choice

    Is your super invested to reflect your age, risk tolerance and objectives?

    We’re all different – with individual goals and views on risk and money management. Investing wisely now could mean a more enjoyable life in retirement.

    In this session we take you through how important it is to consider how your super is invested and understand the various investment options available at Statewide Super.

    Topics covered:

    • Investing for your future
    • 10 investment options – your super, your choice
    • What happens if you don't make an investment choice
    • Investment switching – how it works
    • Getting the right advice 
  • Insurance

    Protect you and your family against the unexpected.

    Insurance can provide financial support to protect what’s important to you if you should die or have to stop work due to illness or injury. The right level of insurance could help you and your loved ones during an extremely difficult time.

    In this session we will discuss the different types of insurance cover available, how to review and change your cover to suit your needs and the three occupation categories that determine the cost of your Statewide Super cover.

    Topics covered:

    • Insurance cover available to you

    • Benefits of insurance cover through your super

    • Reviewing and changing your cover

    • Updating your occupation category

    • Nominating a beneficiary

  • Contributions

    Not sure how or why to make additional super contributions?

    Making contributions into your super could be a great way to boost your super savings. What’s more, the sooner you start, the greater the impact could be.

    In this session, we take you through important information in relation to making contributions to your super and discover how they may be a tax effective way to save for your retirement, or even your first home.

    Topics covered:

    • Employer and self-employed contributions 
    • Salary sacrifice (pre-tax) contributions
    • Personal (after-tax) contributions
