    I think it's because there are no contributions being made so the balance is reducing...

    Yes exactly. We choose to contribute our money elsewhere for our retirement. The fees are eating into the balance and it is hundreds!

    Most funds still charge admin fees even if no contributions are made. I'm with virgin super, although they don't perform as well as some they offer a "baby break" feature where you don't pay fees whilst on maternity leave
