Currently, all super workshops and site visits have been postponed until further notice. These events will be rescheduled when conditions are more appropriate. We have a responsibility to our members, the community and our staff to do what we can to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus).
Information provided by the Australian Government suggests there is evidence that the coronavirus can spread from person to person.
We are following the guidance of the World Health Organization and the Australian and State Governments when deciding if we should hold events. We will let members know when these restrictions change.

Do I need to do anything?
Super is a long-term investment. While investment markets can be volatile in the short-term, they typically recover over the longer term.
If you’re approaching or are in retirement, it’s important to stay focused on your long-term investment strategy and consider all your options before making any significant changes.
Changing your investment option in reaction to short term market fluctuations is an important decision and depends on several factors including your age, life stage and risk appetite.
You should seek advice before changing your long-term investment strategy.
What is MTAA Super doing?
We are monitoring our portfolio and markets closely and will make changes to our investment strategy as required. We are confident that our investment philosophy has us well placed to navigate the current market volatility.
We are here to help
We know events like these can be unsettling, and that everyone’s situation is different.
If you’re worried about your super, you should speak to a financial adviser. They can provide you with over the phone advice and help you consider the appropriateness of your investment strategy. To get in touch, call 1300 362 415.
Can I access my super early?
There are only a few specific circumstances when you may be able to access part or all your super early.
These include permanent incapacity, severe financial hardship, compassionate grounds, terminal illness. For details see the Accessing your super before retirement fact sheet at mtaasuper.com.au/fact-sheets
It’s important to note that accessing your super early means you will have less money in retirement. Generally, it should only be considered under extraordinary circumstances and not used as a short-term fix to immediate financial problems.
Regardless of how and when you access your super, you should always get advice from a licensed financial adviser first. To talk to a Super Adviser, call 1300 362 415.
