Our members are important to us, and as their employers, you are too. We recognise that our fund can seem more complicated than some, so we offer employers a wide range of services to help make super easy.
As a participating ESSSuper employer, you are assigned a skilled professional Superannuation Consultant who will work with you to assist with your superannuation obligations.
||To speak with a Consultant, employers can call 1300 768 776
Our employer administration systems take the hassle out of managing your superannuation obligations.
State super employers have access to our Cessation Online facility and our secure web based exchange system EmployerDirect that allows:
- viewing of ESSSuper members’ super records,
- submission of member and employer contribution payments,
- updating of member and employer information,
- running of up to the minute employee data reports.
The EmployerDirect homepage also provides you with access to our employer manual, employer forms and employer newsletters.
Currently, emergency services employers simply send contributions via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) along with emailing a spreadsheet of member details. During the next year, these employers will be gradually moved onto the EmployerDirect system.
We also provide a range of education and support services for your staff.
Information about the features and benefits of ESSSuper’s funds can be obtained by reading the Product Disclosure Statements and publications available on this website.
We also keep you up-to-date on latest fund developments and changes in superannuation through ESSSuper Employer News, our quarterly newsletter to employers.
Most members can obtain instant estimates at any time of the day by using our online facility via Members Online or alternatively by calling our Member Contact Centre.
