Yes! You might also have heard the terms ‘rolling in’ or ‘rolling over’ your super, or ‘consolidating’ your super, or ‘transferring’ your super. All this basically means is moving super you have from other super accounts, that you or previous employers set up for you, into your Vision Super account. And it’s really easy to do.
Before combining your super, you should check the impact on any insurance arrangement. Such as the loss of insurance or other benefits and you should also consider whether you will be charged any fees.
Could some of it be yours? Join Vision Super and we can help you find any lost super or unclaimed super you may have.

Here’s how it works. You may be able to receive a tax-free contribution from the Government when you make a non-concessional (after-tax) contribution to your super account. The maximum entitlement that can be received is $500 where your total income is $39,837 or less in the 2020/21 year. This reduces on a sliding scale and cuts out if your total income is above $54,837 in the 2020/21 year.
This is, of course, provided you satisfy work, income and age tests.
Please note that the income threshold test for the co-contribution is your total income, which is calculated as follows:
Total income (assessable income + reportable fringe benefits + reportable employer super contributions – allowable business deductions).
In very basic terms, ‘salary sacrificing’, or ‘salary packaging’ means using some of your before-tax salary to pay for something. In superannuation terms, it is usually an arrangement between you and your employer to contribute some of your before-tax salary into your superannuation account.
In the 2020/2021 financial year, the maximum that can be contributed as before-tax payments is $25,000, this includes your employer SG payments of 9.5%.
If you’re contributing by BPAY, it can take Vision Super up to two business days to receive your contribution, then up to three business days to process, although most are done the same day they are received. This will depend upon your financial institution’s processing times.
If you’re contributing by cheque, you will need to allow enough time for your chosen postage method to reach us. Once it has arrived, it can take up to five working days to process.
We can also process contributions by EFT, however, this may take up to three business days.
