AMP Flexible Super gives you the flexibility and control to choose from three different investment levels to cater for your individual investment style.
1) AMP MySuper Balanced
Many of our members choose the AMP MySuper Balanced option, which is designed to help your retirement savings grow over the long-term.
2) Age-based approaches
As you get closer to retirement, you might want to be invested in more conservative options. Our age-based approaches let you sit back while we make the adjustments for you. There are 2 approaches to choose from:
- AMP Lifecycle Active - Offers an investment strategy specific to your decade of birth (eg AMP Lifecycle Active 1980s investment option). As you approach retirement, the investments in this option will gradually become more conservative.
- Super Easy LifeStages - Offers an investment strategy specific to your age range. As you get older, your super will gradually be switched into a more conservative investment option (eg if you’re under 30 you’ll initially be invested in the Super Easy High Growth investment option, but will be switched to Super Easy Growth when you’re 30).
3) Choose your own investment options
Best suited for those who want to select their own risk level and take greater control of their super. You can select up to 15 investment options from our full range of over 70 options including individual funds and diversified multi-manager options. Learn more in our investment options fact sheet.
You can also use our what investor style am I? simulator to help you work out what sort of investor you are. After you open your account it’s easy to switch your investment options at any time as your life or investment goals change, and you won't be charged any switching fees. Simply log in to My AMP or use your tablet app.
Within AMP Flexible Super, you can choose the type and level of insurance you need. And if life changes, you can always apply for more cover.
Why insure through super?
- It can be a tax effective option to protect you and your family should the unthinkable happen.
- Pay premiums directly from your super account, so you don’t have to dip into your take-home pay.
AMP Flexible Super offers two personal insurance products:
1. Essential Protection
- Life insurance is quick and easy to apply for when you open your account online. Essential protection can give you death cover (including terminal illness) up to $250,000.
- Essential Protection also offers total and permanent disablement (TPD) cover up to $250,000 which you can apply for after opening your super account.
2. Super Protection
- Offers higher levels of death and permanent incapacity cover (over $250,000), as well as temporary incapacity cover.
- If you request death cover over $250,000 in our online application form we'll give you a call to set this up.
Setting you up for retirement
AMP Flexible Super is one product which can help you look after your retirement needs, from your first job, through your working life and into retirement.
Your AMP Flexible Super account is designed to help you save for retirement. If you're close to retirement and working less than you used to, you can use AMP Flexible Super to start your transition to retirement.
Once you're in retirement, you can use your super savings in a simple and tax-effective way to provide you with a regular income stream (allocated pension / account based pension). Learn more about AMP Flexible Super - Retirement account or speak to a financial adviser.
