The idea is that these regular contributions, over the course of your working life will provide a sum of money to help you pay for your life after work. One of the main features of super is that you generally can't access your money until you retire after reaching your 'preservation age'. This might seem like a long way off when you're starting out, but taking control early may make things easier down the track.
