Choose First Super as your default super fund

If you pay super for your employees, then you’re required to nominate a default super fund for your workplace. This is for any employee who doesn’t already have a fund or select one of their own.

Choosing a high-quality super fund can mean both a better retirement for your employees and easier super administration for you. In 2022, First Super was one of the best performing super funds* for investment returns and customer service, with our contact centre answering all calls in an average of 70 seconds.

If you’re not already with us, why not get in First?


  • Our local Coordinators offer hands-on service. Give yours a call or an email any time you have queries about superannuation rules or payroll.
  • We’ll let you know whenever superannuation rules change so you can quickly adapt your business for whatever’s coming next.
  • We believe in keeping members educated and informed about their super, so we offer workplace and one-on-one site visits. But we slot into your schedule, not the other way around.
  • Easy payment options. We offer a free and secure Clearing House to take the hassle out of making super contributions.


The super fund you choose for your workplace could make a big difference to your employees’ future. Here’s what First Super offers.

  • In 2022 we delivered a positive investment return for members – one of only a few funds to do so. And we’ve consistently delivered strong investment returns for members, with the First Super Balanced option returning an average of 8.23% per year to 30 June 2022*.
  • We’re an industry super fund. That means we don’t keep profits for ourselves – we return them to our members.
  • We work hard to keep fees down, because we know every cent counts towards growing members’ retirement balances.
  • We believe it’s never too early or late to benefit from financial advice, and our advisors can work with members to plan and set up the right strategy. Advice may be at no extra cost as part of members’ administration fees.


The fund you nominate must be:

  1. a complying fund that meets certain obligations under superannuation law
  2. registered by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) and offer a MySuper product.

First Super meets both these requirements. You can check this on Superfund Lookup.

You should also check that you can nominate First Super. Some employers are governed by Modern Awards or Agreements that determine where they can pay super. If you’re not sure if there’s an award for your industry, use Industry Super’s Default Fund Finder to find out.
