First State Super is a profit-for-members fund, which means that everything we do is designed to deliver better financial outcomes for you. We operate and invest ethically, with a strong sense of social responsibility, and a clear understanding that our values must represent and reflect your own.

In the last 20 years we’ve grown to become one of the country’s largest super funds, managing more than $91 billion. The majority of our 800,000 members work in health, education and service-based vocations, including law enforcement, emergency services and other professions that care for the community. Our size means we can invest directly in hospitals, infrastructure and agriculture in the communities in which our members live, work and retire.

We also have the largest member-owned financial planning network in Australia. StatePlus, our financial planning business, is available in city and regional locations, or by phone, and offer a range of advice services, including simple phone advice about your super at no additional cost, to help you achieve the lifestyle in retirement you want.

First State Super, it’s all about:  Your needs. Your goals. Your future.

Here for you

We’re a specialist industry super fund dedicated to people who provide some of the best health and community services in the world.

With more than 860,000 members and $46 billion invested globally on their behalf, we’ve learned a thing or two about looking after our members.

We speak up for others. We stand alongside our partners and members, advocating for a super system that better caters for people working in your sector. And, more broadly, women and First Australians.

As an industry super fund we work for you – not shareholders. We keep our fees down, costs low, and provide commission-free advice. It’s all part of the service. That way more money stays in our members’ super accounts working for their future.

Speaking of the future, we invest our members’ super thoughtfully, and intelligently. We take care of our members’ money as if it were our own, aiming to maximise long-term financial return while supporting a cleaner, greener future.

We’re not just smart investors. We’re passionate about sharing our expertise through information and advice. And it’s our job to do everything we can to help, so our members can live their very own version of happy ever after.
