Things you should know

* Before you make a decision about your super, you should compare the costs, fees, risks and benefits of your other super funds with Essential Super. It makes sense to consider whether you can replace any insurance cover you may lose when you bring your accounts together, as well as any costs for withdrawing from other super funds and any investment or tax implications.

You should decide which super fund you want your employer to pay your future employer contributions to and complete a Super Choice form if necessary.
