Why join Media Super

Media Super is the fund for those in the print, media, entertainment, arts and broader creative industries. Though our membership base is formed mainly from various creative fields, everyone is welcome to join, no matter what work you do.

We recently merged with Cbus, an award-winning1 super fund that represents those who help shape Australia. Collectively we have over 68 years of experience and a shared commitment to our industries.

Being part of a larger and growing fund means greater value for our members, who now have access to a broader range of services.

For over 30 years Media Super has been supporting our members, employers and community. Now with the backing of Cbus our future is both robust and exciting.

1 Since inception to 30 June 2023. Investment performance is based on the crediting rate, which is the return minus investment fees, taxes and until 31 January 2020, the percentage-based administration fee. Excludes fees and costs that are deducted directly from members' accounts. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The default Growth (MySuper) option obtained a top quartile performance ranking over 7, 10, 15 and 20 years for the period ending 30 June 2023 (SuperRatings FCRS SR50 Balanced (60-76) Index Survey). Media Super merged with Cbus on the 9th of April 2022. The historical performance prior to this date relates to Cbus investment options and does not incorporate the performance of Media Super.
