Important information about the merge between MTAA Super and Tasplan.
Introducing Spirit Super
On 1 April 2021, MTAA Super and Tasplan merged to become Spirit Super.
As a Spirit Super member, you get low fees, excellent service and all the info you need when you need it. We aim to deliver strong investment returns to help grow your super faster. We’re a profit-to-member industry fund for all Australians, and we’re here to make your super work as hard you do.
Read more about who we are and what we stand for.
We’re in a limited services period until 30 April 2021
To give you the best service possible, we’re moving to a new admin system.
While we get your account sorted, you won’t be able to access it using Member Online. Some other services and transactions — such as checking your balance or switching investment options — will also be limited or delayed.
Some services will be available from 22 April 2021, and you’ll have full access to all services and transactions from 30 April 2021.
For more information about the limited services available, refer to the Significant Event Notice.
Rest assured, pension payments will continue as usual throughout the limited services period.
You’re in control of your insurance
At Spirit Super, you control your insurance. You can reduce, cancel or apply to increase your cover at any time, even during the limited services period.
Your insurance choice carries over
If you made an election with MTAA Super or Tasplan to keep your insurance cover even if your super account becomes inactive, this election is still valid at Spirit Super. You don’t need to make this election again.
Please note: Even if you’ve chosen to maintain cover, you can reduce, cancel or apply to increase your cover at any time, including during the Limited Services Period. Find out your options for making changes to your cover.
Your Spirit Super welcome pack will help you get started
Your Spirit Super welcome pack is coming in mid May by email or post. It will have everything you need to get started with your new Spirit Super account, including:
- an account summary

What if I want to keep the same amount of insurance I had with MTAA Super?
If you had default Death and TPD insurance with MTAA Super on 31 March 2021, you can apply to fix your cover amounts until 5pm (AEDT) on 31 May 2021.
All you need to do is complete this online form.
If your request is accepted, your default cover amounts will become fixed cover with your Spirit Super account. Your cover will be backdated to 1 April 2021, and Spirit Super fixed cover insurance rates will apply from then. If there’s any difference in the cost of your cover, it will be added to or deducted from your Spirit Super account.
We’re here to help. Call us on 1800 005 166 to chat about your cover options.
