Taking your super with you when you start a new job is as important as providing your bank details for your pay. It’s easy and means you benefit from having all your super in one place.

Key points

  • If you’re starting a new job, staying with Aware Super is easy.
  • The money you’ve built up in your Aware Super account won’t grow as quickly if contributions stop.  
  • Having many super accounts means more fees. You may also be paying more for insurance through super or for more than one of the same policy - such as life insurance.

Take your super with you

It’s your choice where your super goes. Let your employer know that you’d like your super paid into your Aware Super account. 

Complete the Choose Aware Super form (PDF, 182kB) and give it to your employer. Or you may be given a Super standard choice form. You can also fill out the form online through myGov.

You will need this information to fill out the form:

  • your tax file number
  • employment type (full time, part-time, casual)
  • your account number - you can find this on your statement or by logging in to your account

Have your details ready when you fill out the Super standard choice form.

Make sure the fund you take with you through your career is right for you.

If you’re added to your employer’s default fund, you’ll need to ask to be removed. You’ll have to provide details of your chosen fund.

What happens if you don't take your super with you?

Your employer must check with the ATO to see if you have an account. They'll do this if you haven't filled out the Super Standard Choice form.

You may have more than one super account. Your super will be paid into the account provided to your employer through the ATO's online system.

If you think you may have more than one account, check with the ATO so you can make sure your super goes to the right place.

How you can make the most of your super

Your super is your money. You might not be able to withdraw your money until you retire, but you can take active steps now to look after it.
