When you’re starting a new job, it might be a good idea to make sure your new employer pays contributions into your existing super account. This will ensure you don’t get an additional super account created for you, with additional administration fees and charges.

Keep in mind

  • Your employer should ask you for the details of your current super fund.
  • They may also request a copy of our Complying Fund Letter.
  • You can download a pre-populated Super Choice form by logging in to FirstNet, our secure online portal.

What you'll need?

• Your account number

• Your tax file number (TFN) 

Task steps

  1. Use your account number to identify the correct form

  2. Read the form instructions carefully and complete the relevant form fields in capital letters using black ink

  3. Print, sign and date the form

  4. Hand the form to your employer

    They will take care of the rest. 


    You’re all done! 
    You can confirm that you’ve successfully taken your super account to a new job by checking with your employer, taking a look at your payslip, or logging in to your Colonial First State account and selecting ‘Employer contributions’.
