Leaving your job can have a significant impact on your super. Understanding your options can make a real difference down the line.

Understanding your options when you leave a job can make a real difference to your super. Whatever you choose could have long-term implications.

When you leave your job, you may be entitled to a resignation benefit. A resignation benefit is payable if, before reaching your minimum retirement age, you:

  • voluntarily resign
  • have your appointment annulled, or
  • complete a temporary employment contract

There are several benefit options available which you should carefully consider before making a decision. Please refer to our Preservation of benefits factsheet or cessation of employment benefit application for more information.

*You must cease employment at least 2 calendar days before your minimum retiring age to qualify for a resignation benefit.
