Resigning from work
Leaving your job can significantly affect your super and insurance cover. 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.
