Leaving UniSA

Leaving your job, whether it be for retirement, another job, or just to take a break, can be a major life event. Super is not always the first thought during this time, but overlooking or losing track of super benefits might mean paying for insurance that you don’t need or want, paying administration fees in multiple funds, and in some cases, losing access to some benefit options.

Here are some things you can do when you decide to leave:

  1. Understand what benefits and options you have. You can do this by getting in touch with your fund, and it can help you understand if you have any special benefits, and what your options are. This can be particularly important if you’re retiring.
  2. Compare your options. Most employers have a default fund, and there are many options out there. You can continue to use your UniSuper account, or you may have another account you would prefer to use, but make a decision that suits you.
  3. Consider your insured benefits. Changing your employment might have an impact on your insured benefits, so have a chat to your super fund and see how it will impact yours – you don’t want to find this out when you have to make a claim.
  4. Seek financial advice. If you’re leaving paid employment, whether it be for retirement or other reasons, you may need to seek some financial advice around how to best manage your financial situation.

If you’re leaving UniSA, or considering leaving, and would like to know more about your benefits and options, please contact UniSuper.
