Notify your new employer
When you change jobs, you can ask your new employer to continue contributing to your existing legalsuper account. Just provide them with the necessary details to make it happen. They might set you up with their default fund if legalsuper is not your most recent/active fund.
Avoid multiple accounts
Many people think they need to open a new account when changing jobs, leading to multiple accounts that can consume your super savings over time. You can keep your super with legalsuper, even if your new job is outside the legal industry.
