We apologise to our members for the extended hold/wait times and delays to withdrawals from defined benefit accounts. We expect to resolve most issues by the end of May 2022 and are confident the majority will be resolved much sooner. Please read our service update for more information.

Also note: The ESSSuper mobile app has been updated and is available to download. Visit our Members Online web page for more details.

Monthly returns

May 25 2022

Investment returns vary month-by-month and the investment return on your account(s) will depend on the investment mix of your chosen option(s) and the timing of cash flows into and out of your account(s).

Monthly returns are listed for our Accumulation Plan, Beneficiary Account, Working Income Stream, and Retirement Income Stream products.

ESSSuper publishes monthly returns (which can be positive or negative) based on the change in unit prices of each investment option at the end of each month. Investment returns are calculated after deducting any tax on investments, investment management fees, and other fees and costs. Returns are published by the close of business within five Victorian business days following end of the month.

The tables below show the declared monthly crediting rates for the financial year to date.

Additional information is also available on our Investment performance flyer (PDF 49.9KB).
