Take an interest in how your super is invested.

So you’ve looked into your investment options and may have even consulted a professional financial adviser and you’re ready to invest in the strategy that’s right for you.

You have a number of options for how your super is invested, including investing your super across any number of the eight available investment options. See the Investment fact sheet to find out more.

To switch your investment option(s), you will need to either:

  • log into our online member portal, or
  • download and complete the Investment Choice form. You'll need to return the form to Super SA by mail, fax or in person. Remember to sign it too.

You can also choose the priority of investment options from which you want to draw down your future income payments.

Switching timeframes

A request to switch your current account balance that is received before 5pm on a business day will generally be processed on the third business day following the date of receipt.

Check the Super SA website for any variation to this.

The unit price applied to a switch will represent the market value of an investment option calculated after the published deadline for the receipt of Investment Choice forms.

Here’s some important things you need to know:

  • Income Stream investors may not switch investment options until seven business days have elapsed from opening their account.
  • Your first switch in any financial year is free. After that, every switch will cost you a $20 fee. There is no fee for redirecting the priority of investment options from which you want to draw down your future income payments.
  • When you make a switch, all your units are sold and the money is then used to purchase units in the new option or options. The quantity and value of your units is not transferred between options.
  • In the event of a significant variation in the value of the fund, the Chief Executive may freeze administration processing of benefit entitlements and switches until such time as the Board determines an appropriate course of action. The new unit price is to operate with effect from midnight of the day before the freeze was invoked.
  • Where a member's election to change investment options results in an advantage to that member to the detriment of the other members of the scheme/product, the Board's delegate may withhold processing of that member's election. Any such action taken by an approved delegate of the Board must be advised to the Board within 24 hours.
