Starting a new job can be stressful enough without having to worry about additional ‘life admin.’

If you're an employer, you can help your new employees sort their super in a few simple steps by sharing LGIAsuper’s quick tips for new employees.

1. Pay less for your insurance

LGIAsuper members who spend at least 80% of their time at work in an office could receive a discount on their LGIAsuper insurance premiums.

Simply fill out this form and email a scanned copy to insurance@lgiasuper.com.au. You can also send the completed form by post.

Find out how you can tailor your cover with LGIAsuper.

2. Combine your super

If you have more than one super fund, you might be paying extra fees. You could save time and money by combining your super into the one account with LGIAsuper.

Did you know LGIAsuper members can find and consolidate their super in seconds using Member online?

3. Nominate a beneficiary

Have you thought about what might happen to your super benefit when you die? It might sound a little morbid but if you have money in your super account or insurance you should nominate a beneficiary so that your money goes exactly where you want it to when you die. This can help protect the people that matter most to you. Find out more.

4. Consider a salary sacrifice arrangement

Salary sacrifice is when you and your employer agree to pay a certain amount of money into your super from your before-tax pay.

Why is it a good thing for most people? By contributing a percentage of your pre-tax salary into your super, not only are you increasing your super balance, but you could be reducing your overall taxable income. That means you could be left with more money to spend now, on the things that matter to you.

Check out our salary sacrifice info sheet or call us on 1800 444 396 to find out whether salary sacrifice is right for you.

The list above may be aimed at new employees, but it’s never too late (or early) to sort your super. Contact us to find out more.
