Changing jobs and your super
Starting a new job? Stay with TWUSUPER
Asking your new employer to pay your super into your TWUSUPER account helps avoid fees on multiple accounts and allows you to stay in an Industry Super Fund.
It’s easy to stay with TWUSUPER when you change jobs. Nearly half of our members have been with us on average for over 20 years. Even if you change industries you can still enjoy the long-term benefits of the Industry Super Fund for the people who keep Australia moving.

Super and redundancy
If you're made redundant, you may be entitled to a redundancy payment from your employer. You can find out more about your redundancy entitlements from the Fair Work Ombudsman.
If you are entitled to a payout it could be for a large sum, so you may want to consult a financial planner. TWUSUPER members can get comprehensive financial advice** over the phone or face-to-face - there is no charge or obligation for the initial consultation. If you have queries about the tax treatment of a redundancy payment, see the ATO website.
Below is some information about your insurance and government resources to help you through redundancy. In some cases it may be possible to access your super early if you're in financial hardship after a significant time out of work. Please call us on 1800 222 071 to talk through your options.
Another good resource that could help you at this time is MoneySmart***, a service run by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC). Their website includes tools and resources to help you through financially difficult times - including when you're not working.

TWUSUPER has on average outperformed the average retail fund over the past 15 years. Comparisons modelled by SuperRatings, commissioned by TWUSUPER and shows average differences in net benefit of TWUSUPER's balanced investment option and the 'main Balanced option' of retail funds tracked by SuperRatings, with a 5 (99 options), 10 (44 options) and 15 (33 options) year performance history, taking into account historical earnings and fees – excluding contribution, entry, exit and additional advisor fees – of 'main Balanced options'. A ‘main Balanced option’ being the fund’s largest Balanced option where 60% to 76% of the fund’s assets are invested in growth investments. This is generally the fund’s default option. Where a fund does not have a Balanced option, the option closest to SuperRatings benchmark range of 60% to 76% growth investments is used. Outcomes vary between individual funds.
