We're launching a new investment option menu on 1 July 2024. Please visit the Info hub to learn how this affects Accumulation and Income accounts.

Welcome to BlueScope Super

Your employer has entrusted Australian Retirement Trust as the super fund for its employees for good reason.

Australian Retirement Trust is the super fund formed through the merger of Sunsuper and QSuper. As one of Australia’s largest super funds, over 2.3 million Australians trust us to take care of more than $260 billion in their retirement savings.

As a fund that works for members, not shareholders, we work in members’ best interests and are committed to returning profits to them as lower fees and better services.

Educational videos

We've developed some videos to help you get the most from your super.

This webinar discusses the potential benefits of adding more to super now, the different ways to do it, and the rules associated.

 

 

Women face some unique challenges in accumulating super which often results in significantly less financial independence at retirement. Key learning outcomes include:

  • Understanding differences in superannuation savings for women vs men
  • Strategies to grow their super balances through contributions
  • Ensuring their super is invested in a way that helps achieve their goals
  • Protecting themselves and their loved ones through insurance and nomination of beneficiaries
  • Actions to take now, and how to access financial advice
 

 

In this video our National Education Manager, Joshua van Gestel and our Head of Investment Strategy, Andrew Fisher discuss: 

  • How Australian Retirement Trust invests your super;
  • How the Super Savings investment options have performed over the long term and over the last 12 months;
  • Important considerations for the next 12 months; and
  • Considerations for making investment choices with your super.
  •  

     

    This webinar discusses the types of insurance cover that may be available through a super fund and the importance of choosing who’ll get your super and insurance benefits when you die. Tax implication of death benefits paid to beneficiaries is also considered along with information about wills and a power of attorney and why they can also be important when thinking about your super.

     

     

    For those approaching retirement, this webcast covers your desired retirement lifestyle and how much super you might need to fund it, contribution strategies, investment considerations, our Income accounts, the Age Pension, and accessing financial advice.

     

     

    The importance of Nominating a Beneficiary on your superannuation account.
