Are you using all the digital tools available to you?
How many areas of your life do you manage on your phone? You might keep your calendar, bank account, phone plan and possibly even your credit cards on your phone to access digitally. Did you know it was possible to do the same for your super?
You might give your annual statement a glance over when you receive it, and maybe you check the super contributions on your pay slip once in a while. But wouldn’t it be easier to access your Intrust Super account online, so you can view your balance any time?
Check your balance
Even if retirement is still years away, it can be helpful to check your balance regularly and get an idea of how fast it’s growing. It’s also a good way of making sure that your employer contributions are being processed correctly. It doesn’t take much – just logging in once a month can help you engage with your super account and get an idea about how you’re tracking.
Check your Life and TPD insurance
You may not be aware that they could have insurance attached to their super account. When you log in to MemberAccess, you can check exactly how much insurance cover you have, and decide whether you need to increase (or decrease) it. As default, Intrust Super’s life and total and permanent disability insurance could cover up to $300,000*. If you think you might need more, you can apply for additional units. In addition, Intrust Super members have the opportunity to increase their insurance cover after certain ‘nominated events’ such as marriage or divorce, without the need to provide medical evidence.
