Selecting your investment option
Some Telstra Super Personal Plus members and all Telstra Super RetireAccess® members are required to complete an application form to join Telstra Super. The application form will ask you to nominate your investment choice upon joining.
From 1 February 2017, we are making some modest changes to our asset allocations. Visit www.telstrasuper.com.au/fundupdate for more information about the changes. You may want to consider the changes if you’re thinking of changing investment options.
For members working for Telstra or an associated company, your super account is automatically opened upon advice from your employer that you have commenced work. Once Telstra Super receives notification from your employer you will be sent a welcome kit from Telstra Super which contains important information about your super arrangement and will include an Investment Choice form (48kb) allowing you to nominate your investment choice. To elect an investment option you will need to complete the Investment Choice form and return it to Telstra Super.
If you automatically transfer into Telstra Super Personal Plus upon ceasing employment with the Telstra Group, any investment option you previously elected will be carried across to your new arrangement. You can change this at any time.
Not sure which option is right for you?
You can get simple advice about where you should invest (excluding the Direct Access option) over the phone from an experienced, qualified Adviser at no additional cost as part of your Telstra Super membership. To discuss your investment options, call Telstra Super Financial Planning on

If you'd rather not select an investment option, that's not a problem. We'll invest your money in our default investment strategy, Telstra Super MySuper.
