FAQs

How has AMP implemented MySuper?

MySuper is a simple default investment option. It is intended by the government to make comparing super products easier based on key differences like cost and investment performance. MySuper authorised means it meets the specific standards set under legislation, including fee structures and generally a basic level of insurance coverage.

So if you don’t select an investment option, your contributions will be paid into a MySuper investment option.

How MySuper works for you

  • AMP's MySuper investment option gives you an investment solution that takes you through your working life, continuously evolving to align with the changing stages of your life.
  • Your super savings are actively managed for you in a way that is appropriate for your age and time to retirement. This means that younger investors will be invested into higher-growth investment strategies because they can afford to take more risk. For those approaching retirement, investments will focus more on preserving the capital you've have built up, reducing risk and changing the focus towards assets that preserve your savings.
