GIGSUPER

Self-employed Aussies are responsible for their own superannuation. But because the process is overwhelmingly complicated, many will get it wrong, or just lump it in the ‘too hard’ basket and do nothing about it.  

So despite a lifetime of hard work, too many self-employed tradies will struggle to achieve a comfortable retirement. But you didn’t say ‘no’ to a stuffy office cubicle only to struggle when it’s time to hang up the tools did you?

GigSuper was built on the simple philosophy that you shouldn’t need to be a finance expert to do super properly, nor should it take up much of your time when you’re self-employed.

We’ve created a fund with a purpose-built app and experience that makes it easier for you to get started and automate your savings.

This means there’s finally a clear path to a more comfortable retirement for self-employed Aussie sole traders like chippies, plumbers, sparkies, painters, landscapers, labourers, glaziers, plasterers, masoners, and anyone else who works for themselves.  

In just 15 minutes you can take control of your retirement plans by automating your superannuation. Your future self will thank you for clicking the link below.
