It’s predicted that the average Australian will have 17 different employers in their lifetime, and five separate careers. This is based on data that indicates the average time an individual spends in the one job is three years and four months.1
With so many job changes over your working life, it’s important that each time you change jobs you don’t end up with a new super account. The more super accounts you have, the more you could be paying in fees.
So, just like you tell your new employer what bank account you’d like your pay put into, you should also tell your employer what super account you’d like your super paid into.
What’s the easiest way to do this?
At Tasplan, we’re with you for the long haul, so when you change jobs, we make it quick and easy for you to take your Tasplan Super account with you. Simply download our Pay your super to Tasplan form, fill in your details and hand it to your employer.
Or, to make it even easier, log into Tasplan Online and download the form that we’ve already filled out for you. To locate this form, select the Make contributions tab and click the Pay your super into Tasplan Super button. Then simply print and sign the form, then hand it to your employer.
However, it’s important to note that some workplaces may not allow you to have your super paid into your Tasplan Super account, so make sure you check with your employer first.
