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.

Job change checklist

    Check if your insurance coverage aligns with your new income.
  • Investigate your new employment agreement
    Understand your new employment terms, including super contributions and salary packaging.

    After the first month, ensure your previous employer has made final contributions and that your new employer pays into your chosen legalsuper account.
