Paying low fees now could mean more money for you later
Superannuation funds have different fees and they can all affect your balance now and into retirement. Higher fees will eat into your hard-earned retirement savings and mean less money for you to spend once you stop working. Choosing a super fund with low fees today can give you the confidence you will achieve financial security and reach your retirement goals in the future.
SuperRatings Fundamentals Reports, 30 June 2019. For the QSuper Balanced option.2
Our fees are among the lowest of any super fund in Australia.1
Because we’re a profit-for-members fund, you can be assured that we’re working in your best interests, not someone else's.
We believe in keeping things simple and protecting your super from unnecessary charges. With QSuper, you don’t pay any transaction or switching fees.3

Fees can have a substantial impact on your super savings over the course of your working life.
For example, an increase in fees of just 0.5% can cost a typical full-time worker about 12% of their balance (or $100,000) by the time they reach retirement.4
While low fees are important to think about when choosing a super fund, investment performance also matters.
Your retirement savings will be built over a lifetime, so MoneySmart says to compare investment performance over at least five years as this gives a more complete picture of how a super fund is tracking.
The Balanced investment option for our Accumulation account has produced strong returns with fewer ups and downs over the past 10 years.5
