Our ethical screens

Cruelty FreeSuper is Australia’s only vegan super fund. It’s easy to join and takes only a few minutes online.

We do not invest our member's savings in any companies that profit from the exploitation and harm of animals and people. This means excluding companies who test on animals, make or sell animal products, export live animals, or breed animals for food or products.

We also don’t invest in a range of other harmful industries, including detention centres and fossil fuels. Instead, we look for positive investments such as renewable energy, cruelty free healthcare, and innovative technologies.

Trusted by many cruelty-free crusaders

We look after the retirement savings for some of Australia's leading (and everyday) cruelty-free crusaders

Without realising it, our super is invested into all kinds of industries, including ones that we find pretty abhorrent - meat, dairy, eggs. I didn’t want my money to be anywhere near that sort of thing.

Here’s some of the good businesses you'll be investing in

Common questions

Some things you might be wanting to know

How do I get my employer to pay to Cruelty Free Super?

When you join we’ll send you an email which you can forward to your employer. It will have all the details to help them make payments to your account.

If you’re already a member and have just switched jobs, simply pass on our standard choice form and general compliance certificate, and direct them to our employer hub.

How do I move my current super?

You can request a rollover in the join form (if you’re not yet a member) or by sending in our rollover form. We’ll get in touch with your other fund to transfer your super across, which may automatically close your old account.

Can you find my old super accounts?

Yes. We run a SuperMatch search with the ATO to find your old accounts. These will be visible in your member portal shortly after you join, where you can select which ones you want to transfer across.

How do I check up on my account?

You can view your account online anytime via the member portal. You can also call 1300 022 762 or email hello@crueltyfreesuperannuation.com.au with any enquiries.

Can I get insurance?

We offer Death, Death and Total & Permanent Disability, and Income Protection cover. It’s just a few simple questions in the join form or member portal to opt in for Death and Death & TPD. See our insurance guide for all the details.
