How has this fund performed?

Suncorp Brighter Super has been a strong investment performer across various lifestage segments. With Brighter Super, you have control over how your super is invested and your financial choices will have a bearing on the long-term performance outcomes of your fund. 

If you don’t want to choose your investment option and just want to leave it to the experts, we will do all the work for you. Our lifestage investment strategy allocates a diversified investment mix based on age and automatically changes your investment mix over time to suit your changing needs and risk appetite. 

This means that when you're younger we put more of your money towards growth investments, like shares and property, then as you get older, we allocate more to income investments, which have lower risk and suit shorter timeframes.

Insurance

Generally, taking out insurance cover within your super is cost-effective because your insurance fees are deducted from your super account balance. This means you don’t have to dip into your take-home pay, as you would if you arranged insurance cover outside super.

By attaching insurance to your Brighter Super account, you can have your insurance fees conveniently and tax-effectively deducted from your account balance.

Insurance options available to you and your family include:

  • Life cover to a maximum insured amount of $5 million (including a maximum of $3 million for terminal illness cover).
  • Total and permanent disablement (TPD)3 cover to a maximum insured amount of $3 million.
  • Income Protection4 cover:

- Up to 75% of your salary plus optional super contributions of up to 10% of your salary, up to a maximum insured amount of $25,000 per month.

- Two year benefit period or until you reach age 65.

- 30, 60 or 90 day waiting period.
