When you register to become a support worker on Hireup, we’ll ask for your payment details, including your superannuation details.
Hireup's default superannuation fund for support workers is HESTA. If you do not nominate your own fund or provide incorrect details, your super will be paid into HESTA. You can nominate your own fund during the application process. It’s important to enter the correct Super Product Identification, including the Unique Super Identifier (USI). One fund could have multiple products, so be sure to enter the right one for you. You can get this information from your super fund.
And, just like you’d tell us if your bank details change, it’s important to tell us if your super details change too. You can update these details anytime in your profile settings, and you'll need a letter of compliance from your super fund. To ensure you get paid on time, update your bank details by midnight on the Sunday before payroll. We make superannuation payments quarterly, so update your details as soon as they change to ensure a smooth payment process.
If you’d like more information on superannuation, check out the Australian Government’s resources.
If you self manage your super fund and need to determine whether your SMSF is an ATO regulated superfund, you can learn more here.
