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.
Choose investment options to suit
Our range of investment options recognises customers’ appetite and capacity to take risks changes over different stages of your life.Investment options
