Are your lost members with AUSfund?
The fees, performance and services of different ERFs vary greatly, and can make a huge difference to the account balances of your transferred members. As such, all super funds should regularly review their choice of Eligible Rollover Fund (ERF).

As Australia’s leading Unclaimed Super Fund, AUSfund is genuinely dedicated to reuniting your members with their lost or unclaimed superannuation. When you nominate AUSfund as your Eligible Rollover Fund (ERF), you can be sure we’ll:

look after your ‘ERFed’ members with low fees and strong long term investment returns; and
offer assistance to your members to find their lost funds and consolidate them into their active account.
