Listen and learn from the experts

At BT, we’ve always been passionate about helping our members get in control of their super. To make it a little easier to get started, we’ve been busy reaching out to members, and speaking about the importance and value of super, and how it can impact retirement outcomes. 

Women Living Well webinar 

In March we ran our free webinar, ‘Women Living Well’. Aimed at women, the webinar provided simple, practical steps you can take to get your super, and finances, under control.

During the webinar, we heard from award-winning financial adviser Kate McCallum and personal finance editor Julia Newbould – co-authors of ‘The Joy of Money – the Australian woman’s guide to financial independence’ – who shared their top tips on spending, saving and investing well. They were joined by our very own Managing Director BT Superannuation, Melinda Howes, who gave invaluable tips on budgeting and taking control of your super and finances.

'What the Finance' MamaMia podcast

Westpac recently partnered with MamaMia – the world’s largest women’s podcast network – in an 8-part podcast series ‘What the Finance’. The series is a go-to guide for all things money and aired in March and April this year. Managing Director BT Superannuation, Melinda Howes, made a guest appearance on episode 5, which was devoted to making the most of your super. 

Westpac 'What the Finance' page

In support of the podcast series, Westpac created an online page with additional tools and resources, to help you boost your financial fitness, including some valuable tips on superannuation from BT Super. 

Financial stress is the cause of many sleepless nights. But it doesn’t need to be that way. With a little planning and some simple steps, women can build and manage their wealth with ease.
Australian women are still playing catch up with their super. It’s no secret that when women retire, their super balance is typically lower than men's, and many haven’t saved enough to enjoy a comfortable retirement.
The impact of COVID-19 has seen many people fall behind in their super savings, but the good news is there’s simple steps you can take today to help get your super back on track.
