10 reasons to stay with Telstra Super

There are many reasons to stay with Telstra Super, but here are our top 10!

1. Low fees - the more you save, the less you pay!

Ongoing value

Telstra Super is committed to providing ongoing value to our members. All Telstra Super members pay the same fees, regardless of your employer or whether you are working or retired. Our fee structure is comparable to other funds in both the industry and retail sector, and allows us to maintain our commitment to being an industry leader for member benefits and service.

Do you qualify for a fee rebate?

If you have an account balance over $1,328,181 or you are an eligible couple* with a combined account balance over $1,292,727, you may also receive a fee rebate on any administration fees paid above the maximum of $3,000 p.a.

The fee rebate is available to members with a Telstra Super RetireAccess and/or Telstra Super Personal Plus or Telstra Super Corporate Plus account (conditions apply). Defined benefit members are not eligible for the rebate.
