Cbus supports the Big Super Day Out

8 June 2016

Cbus is proud to support the Big Super Day Out. The event is organised by First Nations Foundation and is a free Indigenous community event designed to encourage First Australians to engage with their superannuation, think about their future and plan for their retirement. 

Attendees will be able to:

  • obtain general advice and support regarding superannuation
  • consolidate super accounts
  • check for unclaimed super
  • enjoy live music and a BBQ.

The Sydney event is taking place at 3pm on Friday 24 June at the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence.

David Atkin, Cbus CEO, said “Unfortunately superannuation hasn’t always delivered for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People – the Big Super Day Out is one step towards addressing this issue. Cbus is pleased to support this valuable initiative.”

Amanda Young, First Nations Foundation CEO, said “Super is a hot topic in the Indigenous community nationally. To encourage our First Nations people to get more involved with their superannuation we have used this outreach model, partnering with an Indigenous community centre and the superannuation sector.

"It has been hugely successful and shows the super sector what works in the Indigenous space. We are delighted at the support from Cbus in bringing our Big Super Day Out to Sydney and later in the year, to Melbourne.”
