Our Frequenty Asked Questions

Here are some of the most common questions we get asked by people looking to join Future Super.

Common questions about Future Super

How do I get my employer to pay to Future Super?

When you join we’ll send you an email which you can forward to your employer. It will have all the details to help them make payments to your account.

If you’re already a member and have just switched jobs, simply pass on our standard choice form and general compliance certificate, and direct them to our employer hub.

How do I move my current super?

You can request a rollover in the join form (if you’re not yet a member) or by sending in our rollover form. We’ll get in touch with your other fund to transfer your super across, which automatically closes your old account. Rolling over your superannuation from another fund may result in your losing insurance or other benefits linked to your previous fund.

If you only want to transfer part of your savings in another account, simply enter the exact amount to rollover in the space provided on the rollover form. Or you can call us on 1300 658 422 or email info@myfuturesuper.com.au to let us know how much you want transferred.

How do I check up on my account?

You can view your account online anytime via the member portal. You can also call 1300 658 422 or email info@myfuturesuper.com.au with any enquiries.

Do you offer insurance?

We offer the following covers: Death only,  Death and Total & Permanent Disability, and Income Protection.

You will be able to sign up for our easy-opt in Death or Death & TPD insurance with just a few simple questions when you sign up online or via your member portal. To apply for Income Protection insurance get in touch with us on 1300 658 422 or at info@myfuturesuper.com.au. If you have existing cover with your current superfund, you may be eligible to transfer this to your future super account, get in touch with us to find out.
