Look after your super
Your super is your money. Look after it by:
- choosing an account with lower fees
- comparing your fund's performance with others
- combining accounts if you have more than one
- checking your insurance before you change funds
- knowing what’s involved before deciding whether to choose an SMSF
- being wary of anyone offering to withdraw your super early
