As much as we try to have everything under control, it’s natural to let some things slide. It’s easy to miss a bill deadline, accidentally skip an appointment or forget to keep an eye on your super.

To help keep your hands firmly on the wheel, we prepared a handy checklist of important things you can do to ensure your super is in the best position to flourish.

Level: Easy peasy
1. Join Member Online
If you haven’t yet registered to manage your super online, click the Member Online button and follow the prompts. It only takes a minute or two.
2. Update your contact details
You might have switched jobs, moved house or changed your email address. Log in to Member Online and make sure everything is correct.
3. Download the VISSF app
Search for VISSF on Google Play or the App Store to download our mobile app and manage your super from anywhere, anytime.
4. Search for lost super
Don’t leave lost or unclaimed super floating around. Through Member Online, you can ask us to search on your behalf by ticking the box that provides consent. We’ll let you know if we find anything.
5. Combine your super
With Member Online, you can easily bring all your super money together. Or ask our Client Services Team to combine everything for you over the phone.
Level: A little more effort
1. Check your investments
Super works best when you know how your investments are performing. Different ages, incomes and risk appetites call for different strategies. Check and adjust your investment options in Member Online.
2. Review your life insurance
See what cover you have using Member Online. To ensure you have the right level of insurance, our calculator will help assess your needs and give you a cost estimate. If you need to change things, you can do this online.
3. Set up regular contributions
Adding a little extra to your super each week really does add up over time. Ask your payroll manager to help you set up regular contributions from your pre-tax salary and watch your super grow.
4. Nominate your beneficiary
Make sure your money ends up in the hands of the person you choose by keeping your nomination up to date. Use Member Online to see who you’ve chosen and if you need to make a change, simply complete the downloadable form.

As you start ticking things off our checklist, imagine how great it will feel to know you’ve taken active steps to sort your super and improve your future life after work.
