Women and Super

What does the future look like for you?

When it comes to super, women usually retire with less.


There are a number of reasons why women in Australia are likely to retire with less super than men. Inequality in pay can be experienced, along with breaks from the workforce, which results in less income earned.

Why does this matter? We're here to help you

Having enough super may not just affect your future lifestyle, but also the type of healthcare or aged care options available to you. 

Australian women live on average 4 years longer than men, so with lower super balances, you’ll run out of super much earlier.

Many Australians don’t realise that their superannuation is likely to be one of their biggest assets after their house.


We're here to help you

We are an industry super fund with a female membership of over 60% and we are here to help our members and community take control and achieve the future they dream of.



Simple steps for you

With these simple steps, you can take control of your retirement finances and your future. It’s easy to get started.


1. Save money and more

Save money and more, by finding and combining your super accounts. We can help you find and combine your super accounts to REI Super. It’s quick and simple. 

2. Lower-income earners don't need to miss out 

If you're not on a high income, you could grow your super faster by getting a little boost with a Government co-contribution. Or, if you have a partner, chat about how they can help boost your super by making a spouse contribution to your super account or arranging contribution splitting from their employer. 

3. Review your insurance 

Whilst you cannot control life and its changing events, you can take time to plan for the ‘what if’. What would happen if you became seriously ill or injured and could no longer work? How would you manage without your monthly income? Could your family and loved ones financially support themselves if you could no longer work? 

4. Don't know where to start?
