Employer contributions

At max, your super is online 24-7, so you can check your employer contributions any time. It’s a great way to stay on top of your super.

What are employer contributions?

If you are employed and earn over $450 per month then your employer is required by law to contribute 9.5% of your salary into your super account – it’s called Super Guarantee contributions.

SG contributions ensure you have income at retirement, however if you want to boost the amount to improve your lifestyle when you retire you can make personal contributions.

Your employer is required to make Super Guarantee contributions at least every quarter.

Get your employer to pay into max Super

If you’re employed, you can nominate max Super as your ‘fund of choice’ so that your employer makes the compulsory 9.5% regular contributions to your max account.

Get this started by completing a Standard Choice form and send it to us.

Normally you can tell your employer where you want your super to be paid. But in some cases, it depends on your employment contract. If you don’t make a choice or tell your employer where you want your super paid, they’ll pay your contributions into their preferred super fund.
