    Hi, I am still in university and I do not earn enough to warrant employer contributions. Therefore, as of yet, I have not chosen a super fund.

    I'm guessing that I'll have to make a choice at some point so I have taken a look at a couple of super funds. Two that stick out for me are AustralianSuper and First State Super (FSS).

    FSS has lower fees than AustralianSuper, but it does not carry the Industry SuperFund symbol. According to the Chant West AppleCheck, FSS also has a better contact centre.

    AustralianSuper is much larger, but has higher fees. Nevertheless, according to my reading, it has better-value deals on insurance.

    Any thoughts?
