Fees and other charges


We do not charge:

  • entry fees
  • contribution fees
  • investment option switching fees.

We also do not pay commissions to financial advisers, which means more money in your super account.

If your account balance is less than $6,000 at the end of the financial year, or if you leave Rest, the total combined amount of administration fees, investment fees and indirect costs charged to you is capped at 3% of your account balance for the year (or the period until you left).
