About UniSuper

UniSuper is the super fund dedicated to people working in Australia’s higher education (universities) and research community. We’re one of Australia’s largest super funds with approximately 450,000 members. We’re passionate about securing the future for Australia’s thinkers, creators and investigators who are shaping a better tomorrow. We manage their super throughout their working careers and into retirement, helping them to achieve a comfortable, confident and secure retirement.

A word from the CEO

“We’re delighted to support this wonderful initiative to improve financial prosperity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. We acknowledge that our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members face unique challenges in engaging with their super fund, and the super system more broadly, so any work being done which aims to close that retirement gap has our full support.” – Kevin O’Sullivan, CEO

UniSuper's Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan

Superannuation, and financial literacy more broadly, can be major causes of social exclusion for the Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander communities, resulting in less favourable financial outcomes. From gaps in educational outcomes leading to wage disparities, to increased health challenges and lower life expectancies, these factors contribute to less opportunity for our First Nations members to benefit from Australia’s compulsory super system.

UniSuper’s aim is to provide a greater retirement outcome for all members, including our Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander members. Through a RAP’s structured framework, we will commit to the practical actions to support our First Nations members with the guidance and confidence needed to support a better understanding and engagement with their super.

From an internal perspective, we believe educating our employees about Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultures and protocols can help us provide a tailored service to better engage with our First Nations members. By doing this, we can begin to remove some of the barriers that may leave some of our Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander members financially excluded when they retire.

We know financial literacy is one of these barriers, so through a focused commitment such as a RAP, we can work together with our Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander members to overcome this barrier.
