About us

Since 1925, ESSSuper and the funds before it have acted as trustees on behalf of the Victorian State Government, its employer agencies and their employees.

We administer the State's statutory defined benefit superannuation funds and obligations. Additionally, we administer accumulation-style products such as the ESSSuper Accumulation Plan and account-based Income Streams.

Our mission is to grow and protect our members’ superannuation and support them throughout their lives.

With around 127,000 members holding over $36 billion in defined benefit and accumulation net assets (as at 30 June 2023), we're well placed to accomplish that mission for the next 100 years.

With a wide range of products and services, we exist to provide better retirement outcomes for members like you.

What we do

At ESSSuper we help our members grow their super savings to achieve the retirement income that matches their lifestyle goals.

Our members are important to us, and so their employers are too. At ESSSuper, we aim to make superannuation administration as simple as possible. We offer a range of services to our employers including skilled superannuation consultants to resolve queries via phone or through written correspondence.
