Super health check
It’s easy to put other needs before your superannuation. However, it is important to remember to give your super regular check ups, as little changes now can mean a big difference in the amount that you receive when it comes time to retire.
By spending a few minutes completing our HIP Super Health Check, it could make a big difference to the amount you retire with.
1. Have you changed jobs and have more than one account?
HIP can help to contact your other Fund and arranging a rollover into your account. It can save you hundreds of dollars in fees. Simply complete the Rollover application form availble for download here.
2. Do you know how much you pay for your super?
HIP is an industry super fund that pays no commisions and returns all profits to members. Better still HIP charges a flat administration fee that doesn't increase as your balance does. View our low cost structure here.
3. Do you know your super’s investment performance?
4. Are you comfortable with your investment option?
HIP gives you the opportunity to choose one of our ready-made investment options, or you can create your own investment strategy from our three investment options.
5. Do you make additional contributions to your super?
It's amazing the effect that additional contributions, either after-tax or salary sacrifice, can have on your final superannuation amount. The trick is to start contributing early and enjoy the rewards of compounding interest on your additional contributions!
6. Do you think you will have enough super?
Our calculators will allow you to estimate how much your super assets will grow by the time you expect to retire.
7. Would your insurance cover the unexpected?
Your super is the asset you are building today to achieve a financially secure retirement. However, at the moment, two of your most valuable assets are your financial health and income earning potential. Protecting them against the unexpected should be part of your strategy. HIP members have access to cost effective death, income protection and total and permanent disablement insurance.
