The benefits of putting several small super fund accounts into one account are:

How to consolidate
You can always do this yourself but if you want to take the hard work and gain professional advice, it is as simple as gathering as much information about your current super funds as you can and making an appointment to let us help you. With your permission, we will then liaise with your current funds to determine what you currently have taking into account the following:
§ If you will have to pay any termination fees
§ If you lose any insurance benefits
§ That the fund you are consolidating into has the services you want
§ That your employer can contribute to your chosen fund
We will then provide you with a summary of your current super funds and a recommendation to consolidate these into one easy to manage fund taking into consideration any benefits that you currently have as well as fees and charges that you currently pay
