If the convenience and higher rates of the SuperEdge Saver Account work with your SMSF plans you can apply for the account by contacting your AMP financial advisor or by clicking “Go to Site” in order to download an application.

  • Identification. AMP will ask that you verify your identity using information found on your driver’s licence or passport. You can also request a separate identification form to be completed at a Bank@Post.
  • Account details. The account number for you SuperEdge Cash Account will be necessary in order to link your new account. You may use a banking account from a different financial institution for which you will need to have the account number and BSB number.
  • SMSF. The details of the SMSF being applied for will be required before the application can be processed.

Once completed, you can mail or fax the application to the AMP offices for review. If you do require additional help in verifying your identity, those documents will be mailed to you within three business days after receipt of your application. Once AMP has all the information necessary to confirm your identity, the account will be activated within two business days.

    The published interest rate for AMP SuperEdger Saver Account of 3.15% p.a is incorrect. I rang AMP and they said it is 2.05%. Can you confirm that your published rate is wrong?

      Hi Dean,

      Thanks for your comment and for flagging this.

      Yes, the current rate is 2.05% p.a for this account. Apologies, this has now been updated.

      Cheers,

    If I link my fund’s Macquarie cash management account to AMP’s SuperEdge Saver Account – will I get the 3.15% rate?

    Thanks

      Hi Loris,

      Thanks for your question.

      I’ve spoken to AMP and they’ve recommended that you contact them directly or by sending through a secure message via My AMP as this enquiry requires them to access account specific information.

      Hope this helps.
