Commonwealth Superannuation Corporation (CSC) is the trustee of eleven superannuation schemes. CSC manages the investments of five of these schemes - (i) Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme; (ii) Public Sector Superannuation Scheme; (iii) Public Sector Superannuation Accumulation Plan; (iv) Military Superannuation and Benefits Scheme; and (v) Australian Defence Force Superannuation Scheme. The remaining six schemes are unregulated/exempt schemes which CSC administers, but does not manage the investments. The five regulated/non-exempt schemes exist to meet the superannuation needs of past, present and future Australian Government employees and members of the Australian Defence Forces. Our vision is to build, support and protect better retirement outcomes for all our members and their families.
We are appointed by the Australian Government to "maximise members’ benefits", subject to risk limits, and "act in members’ best interests" - responsibilities which are protected by law. We achieve this via disciplined and active investment of our schemes using a pooled investment trust. We aim to offer investment options and services appropriate to member needs, delivering targeted real return objectives within defined risk limits. We also provide useful education and financial advice services to help our members develop the knowledge and skills to confidently manage their superannuation. Management of our business is aligned with Australian Government best-practice corporate governance principles. We value our legislated responsibilities as outlined in the Governance of Australian Government Superannuation Schemes Act 2011.
