ADF Super is the super fund for current and former members of the Australian Defence Force.Join ADF Super
We’re proud to offer ADF Super – a fund designed just for current and former members of the ADF.
How it works
Saving for your future
As a member of the Defence Force, your employer contributes 16.4% of your super salary into your ADF Super account. You can add extra money to your super by making before-tax and after-tax contributions, or by transferring in money from other super funds to help grow your savings.
We invest your money
Contributions to your account are invested, so the value of your super depends on the amount of those contributions and the net returns from their investment over time, minus fees and costs.
When you're ready to retire
You generally withdraw your super when you’re ready to leave the workforce. In some cases, you may be able to access your super or a portion of it earlier.

ADF Cover and lifePLUS Protect
The nature of Australian Defence Force (ADF) service often makes it hard for customers to obtain Death and Invalidity cover at a reasonable cost. We make it easy for you—when you’re serving and when you’re out.
ADF Cover—when you’re serving
ADF Cover provides eligible ADF personnel with Death and Invalidity benefits at no extra cost. And if there’s a successful claim for Death or Invalidity benefits, these are paid on top of your super benefits.Find out more
lifePLUS Protect—when you’re out
If you’ve left the ADF, you may be eligible for automatic cover, the day after you leave.
With lifePLUS Protect auto, you get Death and TPD insurance cover without filling in forms or taking medical tests. And if you’re not eligible, or you want to change your auto cover or add Income Protection, you can do this through lifePLUS Protect choice.Find out more
