All superannuation funds charge fees, though they can vary greatly between different organisations. As a profit-for-members organisation, Australian Catholic Superannuation believes in keeping our fees low to help our members keep more of their money in their account, growing for their retirement. To assist in that, we charge only what it costs to manage your funds.

We do not pay dividends to shareholders or commissions to advisers.

Administration fee

Administration fee is $1.50 per week.

If you have a superannuation account, we charge $1.50 a week plus 0.25% pa of your account balance (capped at $2000).

For our default, LifetimeOne, you will pay 0.96%.

Remember, a small difference in fees now can add up to being a significant difference by the time you retire; it’s important to understand how much you are paying for your fund. 

Fees can be charged regularly, annually or when an action is taken. Please note that other fund costs and expenses may be taken out of fund assets. Please refer to the Product Disclosure Statement for further details.

When you’re comparing fees, costs and performance, it’s important to ensure you’re comparing them equally – apples-to-apples. For example, ensure that fees are taken out at the same time, i.e. fees are charged weekly or fortnightly, or before or after weekly unit prices are determined.

Additionally, the fees for options with different risk profiles can vary greatly so comparing low-risk fund options might not provide clarity if you’re after a higher-risk option.
