Insurance - combining super may close your old super accounts and cancel any insurance attached to them. Make sure you're not giving up any cover you need.

Tax - you won't be able to claim a tax deduction or split contributions on any contributions you transfer into your chosen fund.

Investments - if combining into Spirit Super, all transferred money will be invested in your current chosen future transaction investment strategy.
