How ADF Super is different

ADF Super is a new superannuation scheme for members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF). The scheme responds to the military community's desire for greater flexibility in their superannuation.

ADF Super is the default superannuation scheme if you join the military after July 1 2016.

Experienced with the ADF

We've developed a deep understanding of the needs of ADF members through our experience managing military super schemes such as MilitarySuper and DFRDB.

ADF Super is designed to reflect a broad range of military career paths, and for the spectrum of life circumstances.

The benefits of joining ADF Super

ADF Super retains many of the advantages of existing military superannuation schemes, including being easy to join and competitive fees. Some of the benefits we offer members include:

  • Generous employer contributions: The ADF contributions into your super are 16.4%.
  • Profit for members: ADF Super is a profit-for-members fund, which means that we return all net investment returns to members.
  • Competitive fees
  • Experienced investment management: ADF Super is managed by Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC), who also manages MilitarySuper and DFRDB.
  • Education and advice for members: Free seminars to help you get the most out of your super.
