    What is the ranking of Telstra super in general ?

    • Avatarfinder Customer Care
      AlisonMarch 17, 2022Staff

      Hi Horang,

      Please note that Telstra is not an open fund, meaning there are eligibility criteria you need to meet in order to join. To join this fund, you must be a Telstra employee or have a family member who is.

      In terms of how this fund performs, you can see its performance returns here.

      You can compare these with other funds in the market to get an idea of how this fund has performed in the past (but keep in mind past performance isn’t a reliable indicator of future performance). You should also compare the fees of this fund too against others.

      You can compare other super funds that are open for all Australians to join here.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks,
      Alison

    can you divide your super accross all super funds without having to pay fees for low income earners?

      NikkiJuly 25, 2019

      Hi Kristina,

      Thanks for getting in touch! You can divide your super across as many funds as you want to, but you will need to pay fees on each fund. This is why it’s generally advised to only have the one super fund.

      Hope this was helpful. Should you need any clarifications, feel free to message back and we can advise you accordingly.

      Best,
      Nikki

    Can I get death cover after 70 if I am still working?

      Hi Ron,

      Thank you for getting in touch with Finder.

      Some insurers still provide funeral insurance for seniors after 70 and still working. You may also consider comparing death insurance and get a personalised quote by entering your details under our comparison table.

      I hope this helps.

      Thank you and have a wonderful day!

      Cheers,

    Can I have a list of providers who accepts kiwisaver. Thank you

      NikkiFebruary 20, 2019

      Hi Ghie,

      Thanks for getting in touch! As of this time, we don’t have a page that lists brands who accepts KiwiSaver. I suggest contacting Kiwisaver directly to obtain the information you need. Hope this clarifies!

      Best,
      Nikki

    Please reassure me that this list on this page includes all the Australian institutions that offer a superannuation component to their services. I have Family Court orders that instruct my solicitor to give my ex-husband’s superannuation company a copy of the court orders. Sadly, this was not done, and now I have forwarded to every superannuation company on your page, a copy of the court orders. Are these the only superannuation companies in Australia or are there more?
