changing jobs?


Starting a new job doesn’t mean starting a new super fund - you can take us with you, wherever you go.

If you’ve started a new job – or you are about to – staying with HESTA for Mercy is simple. You just need to let your new employer know that you’d like your super to be paid into your existing HESTA for Mercy account.


You’ll stay with a fund that you’re familiar with – keeping any insurance cover you may have in place, while continuing to have immediate access to your super through your online account.

If you don’t make a choice, your employer will ask the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) for the last fund you contributed to. If you don’t have one, they’ll pay your super into your employer’s default fund.

Becoming self-employed?

You can still stay with HESTA for Mercy.

If you’ve become self-employed, you can still stay with HESTA for Mercy and add contributions into your existing account.

It’s generally up to you to add money into your super if you’re self-employed. While adding to your super might not be at the top of your to-do list, it’s important not to put off building your super. Every little bit you put into your super now is invested and, over time, can really grow your savings.

Stay in touch with your online account

Even though super is your money, many of us could benefit from checking in on it more often. So make sure you register for an online account. It’s the easiest way to keep in touch with your super at HESTA for Mercy and it only takes a few minutes.
