Your super is your money so it’s a good idea to keep track of it. If you’re a Christian Super member, you can get a free ‘Super Health Check’ simply by contacting our Member Care Team.
We’ve put together a list of actions to consider to help you keep track of your super:
- Where is your super being paid to?
- Update your contact details
- Combine your super into one account
- Choose your default super account
- You’re currently not receiving an income
- Consider making a personal contribution
Where is your Super being paid too?
It’s a good idea to check where your current employer is paying your super contributions. If they are not going into your Christian Super account and you would like them to, simply:
- Download the Choice of Fund Form from our website and fill in.
- Give the completed form to your employer.
Once you have exercised ‘choice of fund’ your employer will pay your super into your Christian Super account.
Update your contact details
Do we have your correct phone number and email address? It never hurts to double check that the contact details Christian Super has are up to date, otherwise you could miss out on important updates about your super account.
Our Member Care Team can check and update your contact details. You can call them on 1300 360 907 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternately you can:
- Login to your online account,
- Select the Personal Details tab,
- Enter your missing contact details and click update.
Combine your super into one account
Having more than one super account could mean that you are paying fees on multiple accounts, meaning less superannuation when you retire. You can learn more about the benefits of combining your super accounts by clicking here.

Choose your default super account
One of the many benefits of selecting a default super account is that all your current and future employer contributions will go into the one super account. This makes keeping track of your super much simpler!
If you’d like to make Christian Super you ‘default’ super fund (i.e. the one that will automatically receive any future contributions, even if you change jobs) you will need to complete a ‘Choice of Fund’ form and give it to your employer.

You’re currently not receiving an income
We understand that there may be may reasons for why you may not have had contribution payments into your Christian Super for some time. You may want to consider learning more about the different types of contributions you can make outside of super guarantee payments, click here to learn more.
Consider making a personal contribution
A personal super contribution can be made via BPAY. Every Christian Super member has unique BPAY details – you can find yours in your online MemberAccess account, on our mobile app or on your most recent member statement. You can also contact our Member Care Team who will be happy to provide you with your unique BPAY details.
