You might not realise you can stay on as a QSuper member, even if you’re starting a new job outside the Queensland Government.1 Great news isn’t it? After all, there’s plenty of good reasons to stay with the super fund you know and trust. With QSuper’s low fees, proven solid returns2 and experience as Queensland’s oldest and largest super fund,  now you can still feel confident your super is in safe hands, regardless of where you work.

If you’re keen to remain a QSuper member, we make it really simple for you and your new employer.

All you need to do is fill out your Choose QSuper as Your Super Fund form and give it to your new employer. You can even grab your pre-populated version from Member Online to save some time. Once it’s all sorted your new employer will pay your super contributions into your QSuper account.

There are just a few other things to think about:

Get the right advice

If you want some advice about your super, as a QSuper member you can access financial advice through QInvest.4. They have more than 20 years’ experience in helping QSuper members make important decisions like these.

Consolidate your super

And while you’re at it, it’s also really quick and easy to consolidate your super if you haven’t already. Most people have a few different super accounts floating around so if you’re one of them, put a stop to paying multiple fees and consolidate all your super into your QSuper account today.

Be sure before you close the door

It’s really important to think very carefully before closing your QSuper account because you can only re-join if you or your spouse starts working for the Queensland Government again.
