Starting out

Check your insurance

What would happen if you couldn't work?  Who’d pay your bills or your rent?  Insurance can help cover the hard times if something happens to you.

  • type of insurance you have
  • do you have enough insurance?
  • changing your insurance.

Moving onto a new job?

These days most people change jobs every 3.3 years*.  This means you could have had 3 jobs by the time you are 35.  That's potentially 3 super funds and 3 sets of fees.  Once you’re a member of TelstraSuper you can remain with us for life.  It’s easy to take your account with you.  So minimise the fees you are paying and simplify your life by consolidating your super into your TelstraSuper account.
