The share market is down which means that due to higher market volatility, investment returns have taken a hit. Various factors have contributed to the turbulence, one of these being the volatility in global markets and another is the possibility of a recession in the US.

Remember that markets go up and down over time and super is a long term investment so it’s important not to pay too much attention to short term market movements. There’s probably plenty of time for markets to come back up again before you need to dip into your super for retirement. However, it’s always a good idea to get professional financial advice if you are nearing retirement or want more advice.

It is important that you supply max with your Tax File Number. As of 1 July 2007, if we don’t have your tax file number:

  • employer contributions made to your account may be taxed at the top marginal rate of 45% excluding Medicare
  • you won’t be able to make any voluntary contributions to your super account

Supplying us with your tax file number also means any Government co-contributions you may be eligible for can be paid quickly and correctly.

You can send your tax file number to us by:

  • contacting the max Team (email or phone).
  • jumping onto your online account and updating your details.
  • You can log into your online account anytime to change or update your account details. If you can’t remember your password give us a buzz and we’ll issue you with a new one. Too easy.
  • Or contact the friendly max Team (email or phone).

So you’re changing jobs…congratulations! And don’t want to change super funds…understandable!

Keeping your super together in one account makes sense, and most people can choose to nominate where their super goes, even when they change jobs. So if you’d like your new employer to continue making contributions to your max account, you’ll need to:

  • Let your new employer know your choice of super fund is max Super
  • Do this by completing an ATO Standard Choice Form and giving it to your employer
  • Provide some info to your new employer on making payments to max. You can download the Compliance Letter which should also be given to your employer.

Smart boss. All you need to do is let your employer know you’re already a max Super member, and provide them with your member number.

Firstly, you should log in to your account and check to see how regularly your employer is making contributions. Legally, they must be done every quarter at a minimum. If your employer hasn’t made your contribution within that time frame, the money may have been sent to the ATO. You should always check with your employer first, and then contact the ATO. More information

The Goverment Co-contribution has been set up by the Australian Government to help Aussies boost their super. More information

Count your lucky stars… because you don’t actually need to apply for the super Co-contribution! All you need to do is make at least one personal superannuation contribution during the year to max. The ATO will then use the information on your income tax return to work out whether you’re eligible. If you are, the government will automatically calculate the co-contribution amount and deposit it into your superannuation account after you’ve lodged your Tax Return

You can apply to increase your level of insurance cover at any time. Just complete the Insurance form which will be assessed by max’s insurer. Depending on how much cover you want, you may have to provide additional info about your health (but that’s okay, right?!).
