QSuper Lifetime

Super that adapts and grows with you

We're launching a new investment option menu on 1 July 2024. Please visit the Info hub to learn how this affects Accumulation and Income accounts.

How QSuper Lifetime works

Lifetime is the only super investment option that automatically personalises your investment strategy based on your age and account balance, helping you get the most out of your super.


Suited to your life stage

When you’re younger and focussed on growing your balance, we’ll automatically put more emphasis on growth. When you’re nearing retirement, we’ll switch to a more stable strategy that protects your savings.

Adapts to your balance

This option also considers your Lifetime account balance when setting your investment strategy. If you're nearing retirement with a low account balance, we'll make sure your super still has a chance to grow.

A set and forget solution

Every 6 months, we'll assess your age and balance and, if needed, move your money to another Lifetime group. We take care of all that behind the scenes – which means you can rest easy.
