Combine your super

Your super is like a savings account, the more you have in it, the more it can earn. By making legalsuper your primary account, you can save hundreds of dollars in fees. This simple move can significantly boost your super savings and retirement fund.

Here's why consolidating makes super sense

  • Save your money: you'll stop paying multiple fees and could save on insurance premiums
  • Save time: you'll stop wasting time managing multiple accounts
  • Save faster: you'll build your nest egg even quicker

Considerations before you consolidate

Before you consolidate, check these factors:

  • Fees and Taxes: Ensure there are no fees or taxes when leaving your other super fund.
  • Match your details: Make sure your name, date of birth, and tax file number match on all accounts you're consolidating, otherwise it may cause delays.
  • Self-Employed? If you're self-employed and claim tax deductions for contributions, finalise your tax return before consolidating.
  • Review other benefits:  If you currently have insurance with another super fund you'd like to transfer, it's essential to check your coverage. Moving money out of a super fund can cancel your insurance and other benefits associated with that fund. If you have insurance with another super fund that you want to transfer to legalsuper, please download and complete the 'Insurance roll-in' form provided below. After submitting the form, wait for confirmation that your insurance has been successfully transferred before proceeding with the consolidation process. This ensures that you maintain your insurance coverage

Consider obtaining financial advice if you need clarification on what suits you best. Before deciding, you should compare the benefits, investment performance and costs of different super funds. 

Important Numbers

Transferring a UK Pension

legalsuper is currently unable to accept transfers from the UK due to recent changes in the United Kingdom's requirements, which affect Australian superannuation funds. 

Should those requirements be amended, legalsuper may, in the future, be able to resume accepting transfers from the UK. For more information, please contact us.

Transferring an SMSF

If you're moving an SMSF, consider the following steps. We do recommend that you seek qualified professional advice prior to this, particularly for pension-related transfer's from SMSFs.

We do recommend that you seek qualified professional advice prior to this, particularly for pension-related transfer's from SMSFs.

  • Step 1: The Trust Deed will outline procedures for winding up your SMSF or making a withdrawal(s). It is important to ensure that all decisions are minuted and members are notified.
  • Step 2: You will need to convert your assets into cash. Assets cannot be transferred in-specie to legalsuper.
  • Step 3: Depending on whether you are winding up your SMSF or only transferring a portion of the account, you will need to ensure that your actions are appropriately recorded and that you make allowance for the relevant tax liabilities and any professional fees that may be incurred for the accounting and auditing of your SMSF.
  • Step 4: Once the SMSF has been terminated, the assets can be transferred via EFT or cash. A Rollover benefits statement (RBS) must be provided alongside the funds.

  • Step 5: To lodge final returns, you must advise various organisations of the winding up, such as your SMSF's bank and the Australian Taxation Office. You may also need to decide what to do with the company acting as your SMSF's trustee. The ATO offers help on their website.
