Onboarding new employees
Selecting the right super fund is important for employees, and we want to make this as easy as possible for you too.
Superannuation support for new employees
We want to make onboarding new employees with their superannuation, an easy task. Here is some information to help you along the way.
It’s important you offer new employees who are eligible, the option to choose a super fund. This requires the employee to complete a Superannuation Standard Choice Form, within 28 days of their start date. If they don’t complete the form, they may be with a stapled fund and their super will be paid into that fund. The Superannuation Standard Choice Form can be found here.
The fund your employee joins, is a decision they can make for themselves. However, if you have the resources to help them with the Superannuation Standard Choice Form, the process can be easier.
Here is a link to some information you might like to send to your new employee with some helpful tips.
