General advice and information only
Actuate Alliance Services is an Australian Financial Services Licensee and is responsible for any financial advice and services provided through SuperSizer. The information and any advice provided by this tool is general in nature and has been prepared by Actuate Alliance Services without taking into account your objectives, financial situation or needs. Before acting on this information or advice, you should consider the appropriateness of this information having regard to your personal objectives, financial situation and needs.
SuperSizer is a tool to help you consider your current superannuation situation and compare that situation to others in a similar position (referred to interchangeably in this SuperSizer Disclaimer and Terms and Conditions and in the SuperSizer tool as “Your Peers” or “people like you”) based on factors that may include age, gender, working status, income and current superannuation balance. The information you submit while using the tool helps us compare you with Your Peers but is not used to provide you with any personal advice.
SuperSizer uses data provided by DBM Consultants from the Consumer Atlas syndicated program, Australia's largest research program dedicated to financial services (DBM Consultants). Benchmark results for Your Peers is based on survey data estimates from over 30,000 interviews of Australians aged 18 and over with superannuation, for the 12 months to May 2021. The average super savings shows the average dollar balance held in superannuation among Your Peers, based on this survey data (excluding SMSF and government funds). The average super savings of Your Peers is simply the average based on survey data and there is no suggestion that if your superannuation balance is currently equal to or greater than this average, that you will have sufficient funds to meet your future retirement needs. The peer comparison and commentary is intended to provide a general illustration only and does not aim to provide advice as to what your current superannuation situation should be, nor can it predict any person’s future retirement needs.
You should not rely on this tool when making any decisions about any financial product or strategy. You should consider speaking to a financial adviser to obtain financial advice specific to your situation. You may also need to speak to your accountant or registered tax adviser about the taxation consequences of any decision you make. You need to consider all relevant information before you make any decision to transfer your superannuation, such as administration, exit, buy/sell spreads or withdrawal fees that may apply in respect of the existing fund(s). Similarly, you should consider entitlements such as insurance entitlements which may cease when you consolidate your super. You should also consider your contribution caps and any tax implications of consolidating superannuation and seek advice where required.
