Student Super can help you get a head start

As a student you have an exciting future ahead of you. Getting your super organised from day 1 can have a significant impact on your financial future.
Superannuation is extra money that your employer pays you* — and it's 100% your money.
Almost every working Australian needs a super fund. In fact, your boss will ask you if you have one on your first day.
* If you are over 18 and earn over $450 per month your employer is required by law to pay you super.

At Student Super, we’ve made it easy for young people to get their super organised.

  • Pre-filled form that you can give your employer on your first day.
  • We will notify you each time you’re paid super and when we notice you haven’t been paid. That way you can follow up with your boss.
  • Zero fees for balances under $1,000. This means you can open a super account well before you get your first job.
  • No Death or TPD (disability cover) which helps you protect your balance from being eroded by fees.

"I don't actually have a job yet, but I joined so I could be prepared for my first day and make a good impression with my new boss."
