Media Super for actors

We return profits to members

When you belong to a fund that’s run only to benefit you, you’re in good hands. At Media Super, we do everything we can to keep the costs of managing your super low, and return all profits to members like you.

Low fees, strong returns and valuable insurance

We work hard to deliver outstanding returns for our members, while keeping fees low.

Media Super have a proven track record including:

  • Low fees
    We're committed to keeping fees low to help you maximise your retirement savings. In fact, our fees are among the most competitive around^ at just $1.25 a week plus 0.15% p.a. of your account balance (with a $600 cap).
    And if you're just starting out and your balance is below $6,000, your fees will be capped at 3% p.a. to help your balance grow faster.
  • Strong long-term returns
    A proven performer, our Balanced (MySuper) investment option has delivered 8.17% p.a.# since its inception, on average.
    It’s also been stress tested over the long term and performed above the median for Australian super funds over 3, 5, 7 and 10 years*.

We work hard to provide our members with cost-effective insurance cover that is relevant and valuable to your life. Unlike many other super funds, Media Super's insurance cover is available to actors and performers, whether contracted or self-employed. We'll even cover you if you work takes you overseas.**

We invest in and support your industry

Another one of our key priorities is to help build and nurture the print, media, entertainment and arts industries.

By working with industry partners like MEAA and Equity, we support our members through professional development, internships, financial education and more.

And we don't just talk about supporting your industry – we've invested more than $250 million since 2010 to help finance over 150 local film and TV productions, helping to create jobs for Aussie actors, crew, and filmmakers.
