If your new employer doesn't use QSuper as their default fund – that is, the super fund they make contributions to if an employee doesn't choose their fund – they may open a new account for you with another super fund.
This could result in you paying multiple fees to multiple funds, and make it harder for you to keep track of your money.
To check if your new employer is contributing to QSuper, log in to Member Online and check your transaction history. Keep in mind that different employers may make contributions at different times. Some employers pay every quarter, while others choose to make contributions more often.
Whether your super contributions will change depends on your new employer’s super arrangements.
While employers are usually only required to pay super at the current compulsory rate of 9.5%, it’s a good idea to check with your employer directly to make sure you are maximising your employer contributions. Some employers have special arrangements in place. For example, they may pay super at a higher rate, or will pay more if you make extra super contributions yourself.
If you’re starting a job with a Queensland Government employer – such as Queensland Health or the Department of Education – you may be required to make 'standard contributions' of between 2% and 5% of your fortnightly salary. By making these standard contributions, your employer will pay extra into your super account, helping you grow your retirement savings. Find out more.
While QSuper was originally started to help Queensland Government employees reach their retirement goals, our membership is now open to everyone. This means that whether your new role is in the private or public sector, you can continue to feel confident that your money is with an industry leader in investment performance.1 Your family and friends are also invited to join QSuper.
