      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.

      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!

      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!

    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?

      Hello Gram,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      We have a comparison page for superannuation funds in Australia. Please take note that the sites listed may measure the funds in a different manner from each other. Some of them may compute returns prior fees while others would be returns after fees. Also, relative definitions may be used such as top-rated funds (which means in some that they have returns of not less than 10%).

      Alternatively, you may also talk to a financial adviser for personalized advice.

      Hope this helps.

    I have been told to change my super into a industry super fund. How do I find an industry fund. I have googled industry super funds and I get a whole lot of names including the one I am in and my accountant said it was not an industry fund.

    Hello am I able to receive a portion of my super before retirement if so can you give me your advice and are some Superfund easier than others to access money?

      Hi Lane,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      Unfortunately, we cannot provide you our personal advice. Our company is a financial comparison website and general information service designed to help consumers to make a better decision. Please note we do not represent any company we feature on our pages.

      Normally you’re unable to access the funds in your superannuation until you reach preservation age, which is set by law and enter permanent retirement. This minimum age is referred to as preservation age because the money in your super fund is ‘preserved’ until you reach this age. However, there are a few ways for you to access your superannuation before the preservation age. You can read more about that through our early release of superannuation guide.

      For your other question, it depends on which service you are going to compare super fund. Obviously, bank accounts are easier to access compared to super funds because you can withdraw them at any time.

      I hope this helps.
