Unique financial advice for university employees

As a University professional, your employment structure and superannuation benefits certainly aren’t run-of-the-mill, and neither is our approach to your finances.

What makes my financial affairs so different?

For a start, UniSuper is unlike other schemes where your super balance depends on investment returns and what is happening across the markets. The balance in your defined benefit fund is calculated on your salary and length of service.

More importantly, the employment landscape of universities is changing. Increasing funding pressures, deregulation and increased competition means universities are constantly looking at their cost bases. Structural change and redundancies are a reality in this climate.

We understand the many complex issues facing the UniSuper Defined Benefit Fund and can provide you with the right information and alternative options to help you make an informed decision about your future plans or retirement.
