If your fund doesn’t help you set up a weekly saving schedule, make your own contributions to super and claim those contributions as tax deductions – or if you’re not sure what any of that really means – then you need GigSuper.Try GIGSUPER now
Before GigSuper: Unsure how to make super work for you as a sole trader, not making regular contributions (if any!), growing concerns when someone brings up superannuation.
After GigSuper: Not forking out thousands for a financial expert to work it out for you, making regular contributions year after year, and a thrill of hope sets in.
Did you know that, on average, self-employed people retire with 50% less super than employees.
BUT THE MOST MIND BLOWING THING ABOUT THIS STATISTIC IS —
It’s often nothing to do with how much money self-employed people earn.Or that they’re not good with numbers.
It’s almost always about just making a start and then staying consistent.
It’s what 90% of the working population – i.e. all your employee friends – are doing.
They’re doing their super now. And they’re doing it regularly. (Or, more accurately, their employers’ payroll department is doing it for them. But, nonetheless: now AND regularly.)
And you can be, too! Especially if you use a super fund that’s built for your self-employed needs. 👇
“Without Gig I wouldn’t be putting money away at all. I’d be head in the sand still.”

Chances are that you’ve already got a super fund. So you might be questioning why you need a different one.
The thing is…
Because choosing the right fund when you’re self-employed comes down to giving yourself the best chance to start doing your super now and stick with doing it regularly.
Which means picking a fund that fits – one that doesn’t assume you’re an employee, expecting you to do it all manually month after month, quarter after quarter, year after year…
...but rather, a fund that automates all those things that are otherwise tedious to do and guides you for the long haul on your self-employed journey.
So here are some questions to help you decide:
And to be clear – you can, of course, use any fund.
However, using a fund that’s not the right fit is probably the reason you’re not doing your super right in the first place (...or at all).
So while you could try wrangling your way through with your current fund —

“I knew nothing about super! I didn't know how to contribute into it or where my money was. I was with my previous super provider for a looooooooonnnnng time and was never offered any information except for an occasional summary. Now that I’m using GigSuper I'm more excited about it! I couldn't wait to transfer my balance over and start the weekly deposits into my attached saver account.”

“As a full time wedding photographer, starting my own financial journey has been difficult without help. With Gigsuper, it takes off my mind about contributing and investing for my future with the direct debit option, I also found myself getting excited to pour more money into my super account because of the tax benefits! Paul and the team has been very generous with their time in helping me kickstart my retirement journey.”
