becoming self-employed?



You can still stay with HESTA

If you’ve become self-employed, you can still stay with HESTA and add contributions into your HESTA account.

It’s generally up to you to add money into your super if you’re self-employed. While adding to your super might not be at the top of your to-do list, it’s important not to put off building your super. Every little bit you put into your super now is invested and, over time, can really grow your savings.
