Women face unique challenges when it comes to their super

More than 80% of women retire without enough super to fund a comfortable lifestyle, according to ASFA.

While UniSuper members fare much better than the national average, there are still several factors that affect women's security in retirement. It’s a complex issue, impacted by the number of women in part-time work, and women taking an average of five years out of the workforce to care for children and family members.

While International Women’s Day focuses on women in all their diversity, we also acknowledge that trans and gender diverse people retire with substantially less super than men as they face significant barriers to employment.
