What is Choice of Fund, and why you may wish to consider Christian Super as your default super fund of choice
What is ‘Choice of Fund’?
‘Choice of Fund’ refers to when you nominate a super fund to become your default super fund of choice. Once nominated, your employer will begin contributing your super to this default super fund of your choice, instead of your employer’s ‘default’ super fund. To nominate a Choice of Fund, you will need to complete your respective super fund’s Choice of Fund Form and give it to your current employer. Once this process is complete, your employer and future employers will pay your super into your nominated super fund of choice*.
Do I need to select a Choice of Fund?
Selecting a Choice of Fund is not mandatory. Depending on your personal values and financial goals, you may wish to consider selecting a super fund as your Choice of Fund. Selecting a Choice of Fund makes it easier to track your super, as this account follows you, no matter how many times you change jobs. It also makes it easier to track your progress towards retirement and could save you from paying fees on multiple super fund accounts.
