If you’re a member of any ESSSuper’s defined benefit funds, you or your spouse can open an Accumulation Plan account today. The Accumulation Plan allows you to top up your super, consolidate other super funds or apply for extra insurance cover.
How the Accumulation Plan can work for you?
With flexible contributions, insurance, investment and beneficiary options, you can manage your super to meet your retirement goals with an Accumulation Plan. And if eligible, both you and your employer can contribute and you can apply for insurance cover to age 65. An Accumulation Plan is available to you while you’re working or retired.
The Accumulation Plan provides lump sum benefits (with the exception of some insurance benefits). If you change careers you can choose for your new employer to make superannuation guarantee contributions into your Accumulation Plan. Spouse accounts are also available so you and your spouse can both have your super with ESSSuper.
