Changing jobs

Your career might change, but our commitment to your future won't. You can stay with us even if you work outside the legal profession. Here's what you need to know about your super when your work life changes.

Take your super with you

Starting a new job involves a lot of change. A new workplace, colleagues and new challenges. Your new employer will ask you for personal details, like your bank account and Tax File Number, as well as your super details.  

If you don't provide them with your own super details, they'll set you up with their default fund. It's good to know your options, do your research and ensure your retirement money is headed in the right direction.

Job change check-list

  1. Check your account details:
    Update your contact details and make sure we can keep in touch with you
  2. Review your insurance:
    If your income has changed, it might be a good time to make sure you're adequately insured
  3. Investigate your new EBA or contract:
    Know what to expect. How much super does your employer pay? Would you get super over maternity leave? Are there salary packaging opportunities?
  4. Check on your contributions:
    After the first month of employment, check that your previous employer has paid your final contributions, and that your new employer is making payments to your elected account.
  5. Consider salary sacrifice:
    Salary sacrifice is an arrangement between you and your employer to redirect some of your before-tax salary to your super account. A salary sacrifice arrangement can reduce the tax you pay and boost your retirement savings. Read more
