Self Employed Super – the Nationwide Super – Personal product
One of the responsibilities of being self employed is looking after your own superannuation or retirement savings. Our Nationwide Super – Personal product is a self employed super solution worth considering.
Nationwide Super is a public offer super fund that is open to employees of participating employers in any industry (Nationwide Super – Employer) and to the general public – including sole-traders/ the self employed (Nationwide Super – Personal).
If you’re a sole trader/self-employed, or in a partnership and not paying super for anyone else – superannuation is not compulsory – and while the tax-effective benefits of super savings are available, you need to put in some extra effort to get things rolling.
You can enjoy the benefits of being a Nationwide Super member, and make regular contributions to your account – but you just need to understand a few important differences.
With a Nationwide Super – Personal account:
- there will be no compulsory super contributions, known as the Superannuation Guarantee (SG) coming from an employer
- you must select an investment option when you join (there is no ‘default’ option)
- different Death and Total & Permanent Disablement (TPD) insurance arrangements apply, including no ‘default’ cover
(Please note this is not an exhaustive list)
Joining is simple!
