Make Hostplus
your default fund 

Choosing a superannuation partner for your business is a big decision. By choosing Hostplus, you’re investing in your employees' future. These are the simple steps to make Hostplus your default fund. 


Default funds


What is a default fund?

Every employer needs to have a default super fund. If your employees don’t nominate a fund, or aren't stapled to one, you’ll pay their super into your default fund. It’s why it’s important to choose a fund that helps you give your employees the future they deserve.


Are there any restrictions?

As an employer, your default fund must be a MySuper product – in Hostplus' case, this is our award-winning1 Balanced option

In addition, if your industry is covered by a modern award, the award will specifiy one or more funds that you'll need to nominate as your default fund. These can be found using Industry SuperFunds' default fund finder.

1. Awards and ratings are only one factor to be taken into account when choosing a super fund.


Step 1: Join Hostplus as an employer

To make Hostplus your default fund, you'll need to have registered for a Hostplus employer account. If you're not already a Hostplus employer, you can easily sign up using our Employer Join and Pay tool – or you can contact our New Business team who'll guide you through the process. 

Step 2: Share the Hostplus Superannuation Standard Choice form

Once you’ve registered as a participating Hostplus employer, you’ll need to provide your employees with a Superannuation Standard Choice form that nominates Hostplus as the default fund (in instances where your employees haven’t chosen a fund or aren’t stapled to an existing fund). You simply need to complete, print and share the form with your employees. You‘ll need to give the form to new employees within 28 days of their start date. 


Three ways to
empower your employees

Help your employees understand why you’ve chosen Hostplus as your default fund, and give them the tools to make an informed choice about their finances.
