How long will it take for my covid19 payment to reach my suncorp account?
Hi James, I'm sorry to the delayed response. We process payments within 5 business days of the ATO letting us know, and the money will be in your bank account within a further 3 to 5 business days. If you have still not received your payment, please let me know and I will be happy to follow this up for you. Thanks ^Pete

Hi Kalika and Calen, banking timeframes range from 3-5 days but some banks process faster. Thanks ^Pete
I dont know what bank you use Pete but I've never had to wait beyond 6pm for a payment that was paid by 3pm always hits at 6pm like magic even from other companies highlow markets etc the whole 3-5 day processing times are bank guidelines in severe cases most likely itd the 1-2 days max for smaller banks and credit unions the 3-5 days has been outdated for awhile now 2 yrs at least as all banks upgraded prior to the NPP( new payment platform) in saying all that it's again all to do bank and sunsuper and when it's sent but as the poster is anz bank i stick with my first awnser

If i paid for fees like death cover costing me almost 600 freaking dollars and then you close my account what benefit did this have to me? Id like my money back seen as though now my account is closed ive paid for a service that ill never receive..wheres my money you thieving fools
Hi Mitch, as a complying Superannuation fund, Sunsuper must provide eligible members with Standard Death and Total and Permanent Disablement insurance cover unless you tell us that you do not want this cover. As you had the benefit of automatic cover, a premium was required to be paid. You can cancel your insurance at any time. If you request the insurance to be cancelled within 60 days of the policy commencing, any premiums paid will be refunded to your Super-Savings account. If you'd like to discuss your account in more detail, please call 13 11 84. Thanks ^Pete

Hi Mitch, without knowing the full details of your account its difficult for me to respond. Please call 13 11 84 if you would like to dicuss this further. Thanks ^Pete
Canyou use a self managed super fund in sun super
Hi Karl, Sunsuper is not a Self-Managed Superfund (SMSF), it is an Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) fund. If you are wanting to set up a SMSF it is best to speak to a financial adviser or the Australian Taxation Office. At Sunsuper we do offer up to twenty different investment options and members can be in up to ten of these at any given time. Thanks ^Pete
I am finding sunsuper is pretty uncontactable at the moment. Is there a major issue that we need to know about with this provider. Customer service has deteriorated considerably.
I found it hard to log onto my account tried for a week I actually shut down my tablet before I got into my account, I phoned Sunsuper once to enquire about my insurance didn’t get the answer I wanted

how much ptd cover do I have
Hi Dingo, to answer this question we'd need to confirm your personal details. Please contact us on 13 11 84 or speak with us over secure Live Chat at www.sunsuper.com.au/contact-us
Hi there, I have now three years issue with you regarding my TPD claim, four years ago accident in my company and now I am disabled. From Australian Compensation Commision I have 27% disability plus lots more issues that I really don’t feel like naming here all that you have in your papers, so I am just wondering when my case will be finished and do I have rights to ask for interest on my money because you are ignoring me almost three years now???
Does the amount of your life insurance automatically decrease each year?
Hi Karen, I'm not sure I understand your question. Please contact us on 13 11 84 or speak with us over secure Live Chat at sunsuper.com.au/contact-us so that we may clarify and answer your question. Thanks, ^Jen
My son's wife was with SunSuper and sadly died overseas... There are no children of the marriage. My son has been waiting for more than a year to have definite answers as to why the payout has not been made. Why the delay?
I'm very sorry to learn of your loss. My apologies for the delay in replying - if you require more immediate answers please contact us via our website www.sunsuper.com.au/contact-us
Unfortunately, without verifying the account I can't provide much insight into the status of the claim.
There could be a number of reasons - one of which is when the account holder has nominated a preferred beneficiary - this nomination isn't binding, so it will be used as a guide only by the Trustee of Sunsuper when deciding how to pay the death benefit. Whereas, a binding death nomination will ensure the super is paid to the person(s) nominated. For more information, you can visit www.sunsuper.com.au/members/nominate-a-beneficiary - without knowing more I can't confirm if this applies to this situation.
I would recommend your son reach out to us on 13 11 84 (the international number is +617 3121 0700) so that we can provide him with an update.
Is there a waiting period before I can draw my supper?. Im thinking of transferring my supper from another fund into Sunsuper. I’m 64 and would like to take my super as a pension as I am ceasing work shortly. However if I return to work casually in the future would I be able to pay super
back into the fund as well as draw a small pension from this fund?
Hi Marg, thanks for the question. While there is no waiting period to draw on your super, there is 'condition of release'. Super benefits are generally paid when you retire. Government regulations define you as retired if you’ve:
• reached your preservation age (see table below), stopped an employment arrangement and retired permanently from work (for this purpose, permanently retired can mean you don’t intend to work 10 hours or more in any given future week), or
• reached the age of 60 and stopped an employment arrangement either on or after turning 60 years, or
• reached the age of 65.
Once you've met one of the above conditions, you have the option of withdrawing your super. This can either be done as you need it, or you can open an income/pension account and receive regular payments from your super account
If you’ve reached your preservation age, you may also receive your super before retirement by starting an Income account – Transition to retirement while you’re still working. For more information please refer to the Sunsuper for life guide.
If you decide to return to work in the future, you will still be entitled to receive Superannuation Guarantee from your employer, providing you earn more than $450 in a month.
Once you turn 65 years old, you will need to meet the 'work test' to be able to make any extra contributions into super. The government requires you to work 40 hours within 30 consecutive days, at least once during the financial year.
Preservation age is the Government-specified age at which you can gain access to your superannuation benefits, provided you have permanently retired from the workforce. Preservation age varies according to birth date.
Preservation Age Table
Date of Birth Preservation Age
Before July 1960 55
1 July 1960 - 30 June 1961 56
1 July 1961 - 30 June 1962 57
1 July 1962 - 30 June 1963 58
1 July 1963 - 30 June 1964 59
After 30 June 1964 60
As you can see, there's quite a bit of information! If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call us on 13 11 84 so one of our experienced representatives can assist you further. Kind regards, ^Belinda
