The world is moving away from fossil fuels. Your super should, too.

Join over 6000 Australians who have gone fossil free with Future Super.

Our ethical screens

Future Super is Australia’s first fossil fuel free super fund. It’s easy to join and takes only a few minutes online.

Future Super does not invest in any fossil fuel companies, or in companies providing significant services or financing to fossil fuel projects.

We also don’t invest in a range of other harmful industries, including detention centres and live animal export. Instead, we look for positive investments such as renewable energy, healthcare and IT.

I joined Future Super to be part of the solution. As a young person, I am very concerned about the future we are creating by burning fossil fuels. I'm proud to be a member of the only superannuation fund that does not invest in this harmful industry.

Common questions

Some things you might be wanting to know

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

When you join we’ll send you an email to forward to your employer to help them make payments to your account. The only other things you might need are our Standard Choice Form and General Compliance Certificate.

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 may automatically close your old account.

Can you find my old super accounts?

Yes. We run a SuperMatch search with the ATO to find your old accounts. These will be visible in your member portal a few weeks after you join, where you can select which ones you want to transfer across.

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.

Can I get insurance?

We offer Death, Death and Total & Permanent Disability, and Income Protection cover. It’s just a few simple questions in the join form or member portal to opt in for Death and Death & TPD. See our insurance guide for all the details.
