How this works
Information you will need
Yes, there is a 14 day cooling-off period during which you can reconsider your investment. This period starts on the earlier of the date you receive your transaction advice or five days after your initial investment is accepted.
For more information on cooling off, please refer to the BT Super Invest Additional Information Booklet.
Yes. BT Super Invest is designed to cater to a range of superannuation needs throughout your life, which can change depending on your own goals and circumstances.
For example, if you’ve reached your preservation age (between 55 and 60, depending on when you were born), you may be eligible to open a BT Super Invest Transition to Retirement account, which will allow you to withdraw money from your super while you still work (and continue to make contributions to your BT Super Invest Super (accumulation) account). Fees may apply to each account held.
No. Your money will remain in the cash account until you choose to invest it in one or more of the investment options on the investment menu. All cash is held in the cash account, which acts as your main transaction account inside your BT Super Invest account, and is used to settle investment transactions, pay insurance premiums, fees and taxes and make pension payments (if you are drawing an income stream from your pension account).
You can BPAY into your account using the relevant BPAY Biller Code and your individual Customer Reference Number.
Biller Code for personal contributions: 260489
Biller Code for spouse contributions: 260471
Customer Reference Number: provided online once your account is activated.
If you have a BT Super Invest Super account, you can apply for Death and Terminal Illness cover, Total and Permanent Disablement cover and Income Protection through BT Protection Plans. Important information about the insurance cover available through BT Super Invest is set out in the BT Protection Plans Product Disclosure Statement and Policy Document (BT Protection Plans PDS).
Insurance cover is not available when your BT Super Invest account is in either Transition to Retirement or Pension phase.
At a minimum, you’ll need $2000 in your cash account at all times to cover any admin fees or costs related to your investing activity.
You’ll also need the amount you choose to invest outside of cash, and enough to cover the cost of that investment. For further information, please refer to the BT Super Invest Product Disclosure Statement.
You can get exposure to international markets through managed funds, ETFs and managed portfolios, however at this point in time BT Super Invest does not include an option to invest your super directly in international shares.
You can get some exposure to the property market though managed funds and ready-made portfolios, which can include property in their asset mix. If buying direct property with your super is important to you, you may want to consider a self-managed super fund structure (SMSF). For more information go to bt.com.au/SMSF.
If you're ready to get started you can apply online in about 10 minutes.

3There is no charge for accepting any rollovers, however before requesting the rollover, you should consider where your future employer contributions will be paid (if your employer contributions are currently being paid to another fund) and check with your other fund/s to determine whether there are any exit or withdrawal fees for moving your benefit, or other loss of benefits (eg insurance cover) noting that you may not receive the same type or level of benefits after the rollover.
