There are five main types of super funds – industry funds, retail funds, corporate funds, public sector funds and small super funds.
Small super funds are predominantly self-managed super funds (SMSFs) although a small percentage of small funds are known as small APRA funds.
You may also be able to open up a Retirement Savings Account (RSA), which is a superannuation account that’s similar to a savings account that banks and other financial organisations offer.
SuperGuide is Australia's only INDEPENDENT website for consumers on superannuation.
SuperGuide was founded by Trish Power, author of Superannuation for Dummies, DIY Super for Dummies, Super Freedom, and many other books on super and investing, and Robert Barnes.
