HESTA is the acronym for Health Employees Superannuation Trust Australia so it should always appear in capitals.
In 1987, HESTA was formed for people working in health and community services, to accommodate the 3% superannuation payment that employees were receiving for the first time.
As a regulated public offer super fund, HESTA is open to anyone eligible for super to join and is run only to benefit members.
We have regularly received recognition for our achievements in the form of rankings, ratings and awards.
