Anglican Super investing your super
Mercer SmartPath is the default investment option within Anglican Super. It takes a ‘whole of life’ approach and adapts your investment to suit your life stage, balancing age and risk.
When you are younger your super is invested to target growth, like shares. As you approach retirement your strategy is adjusted to increase protection from market volatility and defend your super by investing in more defensive assets, like cash and term deposits. The graph shows you how this works.
SmartPath will take you through to retirement with asset allocation changes right up until age 85.
Anglican Super Trust offers a wide range of investment options, including socially responsible and index funds – there is something for everyone. You can have as much or as little control as you like.
We've got you covered
Death & Total and Permanent Disablement (TPD) Cover
When you join the Plan, you can opt into receiving basic insurance cover for Death (including Terminal Illness) and TPD without the need to provide evidence of good health.4
Your amount of basic cover is based on 6 x your ‘Standard Insurance Cover’ (‘Standard insurance Cover’ is equal to 5% x your salary x number of years and complete months to your 65th birthday capped to a maximum of 20 years). Insurance structures may vary for categories 1, 2, 3, & 6 – please see relevant PDS or call 1800 682 525 for specific details.
Voluntary (additional) Death and TPD cover is also available for permanent employees and contractors to apply for if you need extra cover.
• Your death and TPD cover generally continues as a fixed dollar amount if you cease employment and transfer to the Retained section of the Plan.
• Cover is flexible so you can adjust, cancel or opt out of it at any time, although you will be asked to supply evidence of good health if you re-apply.
Total but Temporary Disablement (TTD) Cover
Permanent employees and contractors working more than 15 hours per week are able to opt into TTD cover. This benefit is also known as disability income cover. Where eligible, this cover provides a monthly benefit up to 75% of your annual salary, paid for a maximum of 2 years, after a 90 day wait period. Insurance structures may vary for categories 1, 2, 3, 5 & 6 – please see relevant PDS or call 1800 682 525 for specific details.
