A recipe for retirement

Pay yourself forward this Super Booster Day and give yourself more in retirement.

The Super Booster Day campaign encourages you to contribute a little extra to your super now, so you can enjoy even more later. The campaign is an initiative between the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA) and Money Magazine.

Start here…

Steps one to three are the main ingredients to celebrating Super Booster Day, but they’re not the only way to cook up something super. There are plenty of ways to improve your super that don’t involve money.


Step 1: Add to the mix

Join your fellow smashed avo eaters for Super Booster Day and make your own occasionally. If you saved $20 a fortnight by eating in, you’d have $520 to add to your super each year. Did you know you can make additional regular contributions or one-off payments to your UniSuper account? You can easily check how your contributions are tracking by logging in to MemberOnline.

Step 2: Combine

Already have money sitting around? If you have more than one super account, you can combine your super to minimise the fees you pay and maximise your benefits in retirement. Before combining your super, make sure you check whether your other funds charge exit fees and if combining affects any other benefits, like insurance.

Step 3: Share

We all like a reward for doing the right thing. So, as part of Super Booster Day, if you make a pledge to contribute to your super and explain in 25 words or less what your dream retirement looks like by 15 September 2017, you’ll go in the running to win $1,000!

Be super active

Here are some tips to improve your super that don’t involve contributing more.


Be invested

Work smarter not harder. Super is a long-term investment and it’s likely to be one of your biggest investments. The investment choices you make now can help your future retirement plans.

 

To choose how your super is invested, log in to MemberOnline and go to Investments> Your investments. There, you can choose how to invest your existing account balance, future contributions and transfers into your account.

Be prepared

This is an easy one. It’s important to let us know your beneficiaries to ensure your money goes into the right hands if something should happen to you. Learn about the different types of nominations to make an informed choice about who will receive your money.

Be informed

You don’t need to be an expert on everything. Our on-campus consultants can provide you with information and general advice about your membership and our range of products. Make an appointment online, there’s no fee.

1. Place the avocado in a medium size bowl and mash roughly with a fork. Add spring onion and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice, mash until just combined so it’s still lumpy. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground black pepper.

2. Toast bread until golden. Butter the bread. To serve, spoon the avocado mixture onto each slice of bread. Serve immediately garnished with parsley.

Tip: try adding feta cheese or a poached egg to serve.
