The information contained may include general advice but does not take into account the investment objectives, financial situation and needs of any particular individual. Remember, before you make a decision about your super, you should compare the costs, fees, risks and benefits of super funds. 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 assess with the help of legal, financial and taxation advice, whether the information is appropriate in light of your own circumstances before acting on it.
