Important Information

This investment commentary does not constitute advice. All investment figures quoted relate to before-tax performance of the relevant industry benchmark. Investment returns cannot be guaranteed as investment markets can be volatile. As a consequence, returns can be positive or negative. Past investment performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Benefits in ESSSuper's Accumulation Plan, Income Streams and Beneficiary Account products are not guaranteed or underwritten by the Victorian Government or ESSSuper, and ESSSuper does not come under the jurisdiction of the Australian Financial Complaints Authority (AFCA).

How rates are applied

ESSSuper calculates and declares final crediting rates (which can be positive or negative) for each investment option at the end of each month (except for term deposits where interest is credited at the end of the term). The rates credited or debited to your account are the actual monthly earning rates compounded for your chosen investment options, after deducting tax, investment management fees and other costs, where applicable. Rates are declared by the close of business within 5 business/working days of the following month (excluding public holidays).

Interim rates

If you were to close your account on the 10th of a month, interim rates would be used to calculate earnings on your account for the period from the 1st of the month to the 10th of the month. The earning rates used to calculate earnings on your account for previous months in the current financial year will be calculated using the final declared rates for those months.

The interim rates are designed to closely reflect the investment returns for each investment option from the last declared monthly rate until the time of transaction.

The interim rates shown on this page are estimates only and are subject to change as a result of changes in valuations, taxation, fees and other information. We aim to update the interim rates on this page on a weekly basis. You should keep in mind that super is generally considered to be a long-term investment. Accordingly, you should think carefully about making changes in response to short-term fluctuations in the value of your investments.

Interim rates are available each Friday from 12:00pm (except public holidays).
