Baby Bump is a refund of all or part of the annual dollar-based administration fee, for the time you’re on parental leave, up to a maximum of 12 months ($93.60).
We created Baby Bump for two reasons:
- Employers don't have to pay super when you take parental leave, and;
- Dads are less likely to take parental leave than mums.
These two factors contribute to the startling gender inequality in super - that, on average, women retire with 42%* less super than men. So Baby Bump is Future Super’s baby step towards making super more fair for our members.
