Net benefits and your Super

Net benefits and super

Net benefit is an important factor when it comes to assessing how your fund is performing. Strong long-term returns and a growing balance are also important – but it’s net benefit that could show the true value of your fund.

What is net benefit and how is it calculated?

In relation to your super, net benefit is: the investment return delivered to you by your super fund minus the administration fees, investment fees and costs and taxes.

When you’re comparing the performance of super funds or checking that your fund is delivering on your investments, it may be wise to check the net benefit.

To calculate your net benefit you need to know your investment earnings for the year and the fees and taxes you paid for the year.
