Things to consider

Transfer existing insurance

Any insurance cover you have with your other super fund will cease when you move your account balance in that fund to NGS Super.

You may be able to ‘transfer’ your other insurance cover to NGS Super before consolidating your super balances. To apply, please complete our Insurance Transfer Form and wait for confirmation of acceptance of the insurance prior to requesting to consolidate your super balance.

To find out more read our Insurance Guide.

Important^: In relation to any transferred cover;

  • NGS Super’s terms, conditions and definitions apply, and
  • you will only be able to claim in respect of health conditions that start after the date of transfer.

Insurance Transfer Form

Transfer employer contributions

Are your employer super guarantee (SG) contributions already being paid to NGS Super? If not, complete our Superannuation Choice Form and arrange for your employer to direct SG contributions into your NGS Super account.

If you do not do this, your other fund may continue to receive money from your employer, and may set up another account for you where fees are likely applicable.

Superannuation Choice Form

Other factors should be considered when choosing a superannuation fund. You should ask your 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.

What happens next

After submitting your consolidation request, it will take around three to five business days to process the transfer of your money to NGS Super.

Once the transfer is completed, you can view your combined funds by logging in to your Member Online account, then clicking on ‘Account Activity’ in the menu board. Your transfer will be displayed as a ‘Rollovers / Transfers in’ transaction.

Rather not submit your details online?

Download a Transfer Authority Form, follow the four simple steps and return your completed form via mail to NGS Super. We’ll take care of the rest.

Find out how you could earn more super for retirement

We’ve provided you with an estimate of how much more your super might have earned if, five years ago, you had combined super you may have with another fund with us. To do this, we’ve had to make some assumptions.

This illustration shows how a super balance of $50,000 five years ago might have grown to 30 June 2019 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

[iv] Default NGS Plus life and TPD insurance covers at age 27 - NGS Super insurance guide 1 July 2019
