What is the SSA?

The Superannuation Savings Account (SSA) is a simple, capital guaranteed, low cost superannuation account. The SSA is currently unavailable for new customers but we are committed to supporting our existing customers.

The money you put into your Superannuation Savings Account is capital guaranteed by the Commonwealth Bank, which means it is safe from market fluctuations. As a complying Superannuation product (under current Government legislation), a condition of release must be met before withdrawals from the account can be processed.

Changes to super

In 2019, a new super law came into effect, Protecting Your Super. Its aim is to ensure super accounts aren’t being eroded by fees and insurance premiums. Below is a summary of what this means for your super – and what you need to do.
 

  1. Insurance will be cancelled on inactive accounts.
    If we don’t received a contribution or rollover to your Superannuation Savings Account for 16 continuous months, your insurance will be cancelled, unless you write to us to request to keep it.
     
  2. Fees on low balance accounts will be capped.
    If your Superannuation Savings Account has a balance under $6,000, fees will be capped at 3% and exit fees are banned altogether. Furthermore, if your account balance is below $1,200, you will not be charged the annual administration fee. 
     
  3. Inactive accounts with low balances will be transferred to the ATO. 
    If your Superannuation Savings Account has been inactive for 16 months and has a balance of less than $6,000, it could be transferred to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) unless you write to us to request to keep it.
