The start of a new financial year can be a hectic time for businesses, but it’s also the ideal time to review your super to ensure that you can step into 2024 with confidence.
Brighter Super has been supporting energy and electrical utility workers for more than 40 years to reach their retirement dreams and is committed to doing this as much as possible face-to-face. Kate Farrar, CEO of Brighter Super, said, “It’s a busy administrative time of year, but don’t forget to plan ahead to ensure you are getting the most out of superannuation.
“We have been listening to what our industry members want and need, and one of those things was not to lose our personalised approach as we grow. We really listened and today have more than 40 consultants on the ground, more than any other superannuation, ready to meet members and support them on their retirement journey.
“We’ve seen thousands of members in the last year, and these are the three C’s that we recommend all employees should consider at this time of year.”
1. Check – that your retirement is on track. Request a super health check with your super fund.
2. Consolidate – find out if you’re paying fees on multiple accounts and discuss consolidation with your super fund.
3. Contribute – Consider your budget and whether you are able to make additional contributions.
A little planning now can go a long way to making 2024 a brighter financial year. Brighter Super is a proud Queensland not-for-profit fund, and with 259,000 members and $29 billion funds under management is also one of Queensland’s largest nongovernment financial institutions.
