We're dedicated to advancing reconciliation in Australia
We acknowledge the First Nations people as the Traditional Owners of the land we are on today. We acknowledge all Elders, past, present, and emerging. Please be aware this page may include images of people who are no longer alive.
We work towards reconciliation in Australia because we want all of our members across the country to enjoy financial stability now and in their retirement.
Our conversations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and further analysis have led us to focus on key areas for our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) (pdf) where we believe we can make a difference:
We believe in breaking down obstacles so all Australians have fair and equitable access to their super. We believe that engaging with our Indigenous members and community partnerships will help us secure the best possible financial outcomes for everyone.

Helping people access their super when they retire or become unable to work due to disability means they can do more for themselves, their family, and their community. Here's the initiatives we've taken in our reconciliation journey so far.
We visit remote Indigenous communities around Australia to support the financial wellbeing of members and locals. We've connected our members with millions of dollars in lost super.
We've advocated to the government for legislation about Torres Strait Islander kinship structures to make it easier for beneficiaries to access super benefits. Since September 2020, Queensland now has the Meriba Omasker Kaziw Kazipa Act 2020.
Our Super made easy page, impact partnership with First Nations Foundation’s IndigenousSuper.com.au, and webinars are designed for the people we can't meet in person.
We've implemented guidelines to accept different forms of identification, such as a letter or statement by a referee, to make super more accessible for people in remote areas who don't have the expected ID documents.
We've partnered with organisations including First Nations Foundation, Indigenous Youth Leadership Program, AIST's Indigenous Super Working Group, the ATO's Reuniting Super unit, and ASIC’s Indigenous Outreach Program.
We acknowledge the local Traditional Owners in our events, display Indigenous artworks in our Member Centres, some of us are BlackCard accredited, and we celebrate NAIDOC week and National Reconciliation Week.
