Continuing and fixed term employees may choose to make post and pre-tax voluntary contributions to their superannuation account by completing and signing a 'Voluntary Contribution to UniSuper Request for Payment' form.
These regular payments are made through the University payroll system. Please note, the University does not match voluntary contributions made by staff members.
A total maximum pre-tax amount of 100% of gross salary currently applies. This 100% cap relates to all pre-tax standard member contributions and pre-tax voluntary contributions made by the employee and any other pre-tax deductions.
For further information regarding salary sacrificing refer to Procedure-Salary Sacrificing.
Lump Sum Contributions
Voluntary lump sum contributions to superannuation may be made by using BPay or by writing a cheque made payable to UniSuper Ltd.
For further information regarding Lump sum contributions refer to 'making contributions'.
Rollovers into UniSuper
Members may rollover existing superannuation benefits to other approved super funds. Advantages include consolidated superannuation fund, administration fees will be paid to only one super fund and tracking will be much easier.
For further information regarding rollovers refer to 'get your super together'.
Employees who make after tax contributions to superannuation and earn at least 10% of income from employment as an employee may be eligible for a co-contribution from the government.
