Reduce your fees and take control of your super

Why manage many accounts when all you need is one? Consolidating your super is simple and makes sense.

Consolidate with NGS to reduce your total fees and take control of your money and future.

Benefits of consolidating your super

Save money on fees

Why pay multiple fees to multiple funds? Having one fund means you’ll only pay one set of fees. Consolidate with NGS, where all profits are directed to members, and we always work to keep costs low.

Keep track of your super savings

It’s easier to keep track of your super when it’s in one place. You can view and manage your NGS account at any time through our Member Online portal.

Less administration

Consolidating your super means fewer emails in your inbox, leaving more time for you to enjoy. We’ll only send you the things that matter.

Why consolidate with NGS?

For every $50,000 you held with a median retail super fund for the last five years, NGS could have earned you an extra $5,000. That's $5,000 more invested and growing for your future.*

Things to consider

Before consolidating, you:

  • should ask your other fund for information about any fees that may apply
  • check the impact on any insurance you may have
  • let your employer know where you want your contributions directed
  • claim any intended tax deductions on contributions you've made.

Impact on your insurance

Transfer employer contributions

If you apply to transfer your cover, please wait until you receive confirmation that we have accepted it before consolidating your super balance with us.

You should ask your other super fund for information about any fees or charges that may apply, or any other information about the effect this transfer may have on benefits such as your insurance cover before making a decision to combine your super.

*This illustration shows how a super balance of $50,000 five years ago might have grown to 31 Dec 2020 with NGS Super, compared to the same balance over the same period in a median retail master trust.

It illustrates that a number of factors (including investment performance, insurance premiums and fees) can combine to produce a meaningful difference in superannuation balance outcomes in different funds over a relatively short period of time. Relevant factors are shown in the table below.

For simplicity, the illustration takes no account of any contributions (whether employer superannuation guarantee or member additional voluntary) and shows only what the outcome might have been based on the stated assumptions for the starting superannuation balance shown.

The illustration is an estimate only and does not represent the actual outcome that would have occurred for any particular person. ‘Median retail master trust’ refers to a group of super funds that include those run by the big banks and AMP. The details extracted are for the median of that group and do not relate to any particular fund. Past investment performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. General advice warning
