We have a 'Choice of Fund' form you can provide to your new employer that provides all of the details in relation to your smartMonday membership. You can find more information here.
Check out our ‘Grow your super’ page for more information on the different types of contributions you, or your employer, can make to super.
Yes. The Government sets annual caps on the amount of concessional and non-concessional contributions that can go into your super each financial year. All contributions into your super count towards the caps and there are tax consequences if you exceed them.

There are further restrictions if you have more than $1.9 million in super (across all of your super accounts). See the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) website for the latest information at
You are able to contribute to super if you are under the age of 75, even if you are not working. Make sure you check the contribution caps and limits that apply to everyone.

If you intend to claim a tax deduction for contributions you make and you are aged 67-74, the Government applies a ‘Work test’ which means you need to be in gainful (paid) work for at least 40 hours in a period of no more than 30 consecutive days in the financial year you make your superannuation contributions.

You generally cannot contribute further money to super once you reach age 75, although the Government’s Downsizer Contribution scheme may be available to you if you sell your house. Information about contributing to super, including eligibility for the Downsizer Contribution scheme, is available at the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) website
Each year, the Government's co-contribution scheme could mean up to $500 extra towards your retirement nest egg. If your total income is less than $43,445 (in the 2023/24 financial year) and you make after-tax contributions to your super, the Government will boost your super with a co-contribution of 50 cents for every $1 of those contributions up to a maximum co-contribution of $500. If your total income is between $43,445 and $58,445 in the 2023/24 financial year your maximum entitlement will reduce progressively as your income increases.
Yes, anyone under the age of 67 can claim a tax deduction on their after-tax contributions.

If you are aged 67-74, the Government applies a ‘Work test’ which means you need to be in gainful (paid) work for at least 40 hours in a period of no more than 30 consecutive days in the financial year you make your superannuation contributions and claim them as a tax deduction.

Contributions claimed as a tax deduction are then taxed at 15% and count towards the $30,000 annual concessional contributions cap.
TIP – if you plan on claiming a tax deduction, you’ll need to give us notice of your intention before you lodge your income tax return by completing the Notice of intent to claim a tax deduction form available from the Documents section of the website.

Super funds typically offer two types of pension:
  • Transition to retirement pension (TRP) - If you’d like to cut back on work and start easing into retirement, you can use part or all of your super to buy a TRP. This will offer you lifestyle flexibility and a regular income before you retire completely.
  • Retirement pension - When you retire completely or meet what's known as a condition of release, a retirement pension will provide you with regular income.
You can start a Transition to retirement pension (TRP) when you reach your preservation age, which is See the Accessing your super page -
