Key features of Sunsuper Everyday Super

  • Default MySuper option. The Suncorp Lifestage Fund is a simple, low-fee MySuper product and is the default option for members. This option changes your mix of investments as you grow older, so you're taking on less risk as you get closer to retirement.
  • Single sector options. If you want more control over your super you create your own investment mix using the single sector options, instead of going with the Lifestage Fund.
  • Consolidate your super. You can ask Suncorp to search the ATO for any other super you may have, and then roll these over into your Suncorp account.
  • Easy access to your account. Access your account 24/7 online or via the mobile app to monitor your balance, make additional contributions or change your investments.
  • Flexible insurance coverage. Your insurance cover is determined by your age, and will automatically adjust over time. You'll receive more cover when you're likely to have higher debt such as a mortgage and children.
  • Suncorp Brighter Super. Suncorp also offers another super product called Suncorp Brighter Super. With this product, you can choose from a range of different pre-mixed investment options. Learn more about Suncorp Brighter Super here.

What investment options are available?

Suncorp Everyday Super offers two investment categories depending on how hands-on you want to be with your super. The Suncorp Lifestage category is a low-cost, simple strategy which leaves the complicated investment and management choices to Suncorp. If you want greater control of your super and to choose your own portfolio, Suncorp enables you to do that too.

Option 1: Suncorp Lifestage Fund

The Suncorp Lifestage Fund option is designed to reflect your needs as you move through the workforce. First, you'll be allocated a diversified investment portfolio based on your age, which then automatically adjusts your investment mix as you get older to suit your changing needs and desire for risk.

For example, if you were born in 1991 you'll be invested in the Suncorp Lifestage Fund 1990-1994, a portfolio which contains more growth (and riskier) assets like shares and property. As you get older, Suncorp will automatically shift your money to more defensive assets like cash and bonds as your needs change and you become more risk-averse. This way you'll never have to make any investment decisions about your super. Suncorp will do the work for you.

  • Suncorp Australian Shares Fund
  • Suncorp International Shares Fund
  • Suncorp Property Fund
  • Suncorp Australian Fixed Interest Fund
  • Suncorp Cash Fund

You can change your investments at any time by logging into your online Suncorp member account. Before making a choice you should consider the possible return and risk of the investment options and how long you plan to keep them.

What insurance cover is offered with Suncorp Everyday Super?

Suncorp Everyday Super offers you tailored insurance cover based on your lifestage via Suncorp Life. The amount of cover you receive is determined by your age, and will automatically adjust over time. Suncorp will also provide you with more cover when you're likely to have higher debt such as a mortgage and children.

Once you sign up you will automatically receive*:

  • Death cover (including terminal illness cover), which pays a lump sum to your elected beneficiaries if you die or suffer a terminal illness
  • Total and permanent disablement cover (TPD), which pays a lump sum if illness or injury means you are unlikely to ever be able to work again

Insurance premiums will be deducted from your super account, and you can increase (up to $850,000) or decrease your insurance through your online account. Note that insurance is applied on an opt-out basis, meaning that you will automatically be placed into cover and have premiums deducted from your account balance. You can cancel your insurance cover at any time online.

*Note: There may be exclusions and/or restrictions which apply to your insurance cover. Check the Insurance Guide available via the Suncorp Everyday Super website.
