Media Super is a public offer industry fund, established in 2008 from the merger of Print Super and JUST SUPER. It continues to service members in the print, media, entertainment, arts and creative industries. The Personal division is designed for members wanting to contribute directly to the fund. Members have access to a wide variety of Diversified and Single Sector investment strategies, which include a Sustainable Future Shares option and a SmartPath Lifecycle option. Furthermore, access to Term Deposits, ASX300 Shares and ETFs is provided via the Direct Investment option, however, additional costs may be incurred. The Balanced option has outperformed the SuperRatings Index over the 1, 3 and 5 years to 30 June 2017. Fees for the Balanced option are lower than the industry average across all assessed account balances with a low asset administration fee charged. However, transaction fees apply for withdrawals, investment switches and contribution splitting. Media Super's insurance offering provides greater flexibility with a sustainable benefit design. Members can apply for a maximum of $5 million of Death cover and $2 million of TPD cover. Income Protection covers up to 87% of salary (including SG contributions), with a maximum benefit payment of $30,000 per month. Members can also choose from a benefit payment period of 5 years or up to age 65, with a selection of 30, 60 or 90 day waiting periods. Media Super's interactive website features a wide range of useful resources for members. The Blog covers a large array of subjects, including education on fundamental superannuation topics, fund bulletins, investment updates and community news.
