More information about fees

  • What are the main types of fees and which ones apply to Virgin Money Super?

    Super funds charge you fees for the services they provide. All funds charge fees, though some less than others. Generally, a super fund with low fees will build your savings faster.

    The main types of fees are:

    • Member fees - General administration fees to cover the cost of keeping your super account.
    • Management or investment management fees (also known as MER) - Fees for managing your investment which can vary for different investment options.
    • Contribution fees - Fees to cover the administration expense of receiving and investing your contributions.
    • Adviser service fees - Fees for personal advice provided about your super and other investments. Your adviser may also receive commissions for certain investments that they recommend to you.
    • Insurance premiums - The cost of insurance provided through your super fund. Many super funds have a set default insurance option. You can usually choose to cancel, decrease or increase your level of cover based on your needs.

    Virgin Money Super charges administration fees, investment fees along with indirect costs. Full details can be found on Virgin Money Super’s fees page.

  • How can you tell if you're paying high fees?

    The only way to know if you're paying high fees is to find out what your super fund is charging you, and comparing the cost to other similar funds.

  • How is insurance charged through super?

    Most super funds offer life insurance for their customers. In many cases, Super funds are required to provide default life insurance as a matter of law. The cost also known as your insurance premiums are taken directly from your super balance. There are both pros and cons to having insurance through your super, one pro being that the premium comes from your super balance rather than your other income.

    Your employer's default super fund must offer a minimum level of life insurance, depending on your age. However you are under no obligation to take up the insurance and can cancel the insurance at any time. Alternatively you can usually increase or decrease the amount of insurance your have.

    If you're reviewing your life insurance, check what cover you have through your super fund so you can compare with other options.
