Hi, everybody, and welcome back to our series, “Super with Storm”.
This is all about how to tell your employer what super fund you have.
When you change super funds or start a new job, it is important for you to tell your employer what super fund you’re with, so that they know where to pay your super into. Don’t forget – super is your money.
There’s a standard form to tell your employer. This is called a superannuation standard choice form. This is what the front cover looks like.
On this form, you will have to fill out your details, like your name, your tax file number, and your Student Super member number. You will also have to fill out the fund’s details, such as the fund’s ABN and USI number.
If you have a Student Super account, in Section A for the question “I choose for my super to be paid into”, you’ll just tick the first box that says “My existing super fund.” This will lead you to complete Section B for the form next.
OK. This might all seem a little complicated...ABN, USI… But I’ve got some good news – you don’t have to do any of that because Student Super has created personalised, pre-filled version of the form for you! It’s all filled in already.
So where do you actually find your pre-filled super choice form? It’s easy!
Log into your Student Super account and go the ‘Tell My Employer’ page.
The easiest way is to put in your employer’s email, hit the ‘send’ button, and your pre-filled super nomination form will be emailed directly to your employer. You’ll get a copy to your email address too. This version of the form doesn’t need your signature – so it can all be done online.
Some employers still prefer the paper-based ATO standard choice form.
No problem – we’ve got you covered for that too!
If your employer wants you to complete the ATO standard choice form, just download your pre-filled copy of the ATO version and print it. This version needs you to add two things - your Tax File Number and your signature.
Now, all you have to do is hand this form in to your employer and they can start paying your super into your new Student Super account.
And that’s it! You’re all organised!
