Pre-tax (salary sacrifice) standard member contributions

For Defined Benefit & Accumulation 2 members

UniSuper members have the option of choosing to make standard member contributions as a pre-tax, or salary sacrifice contribution. By choosing this option the gross salary of the staff member is reduced by 8.25 % (7% employee contribution plus 15% government contributions tax).

Pre-tax contributions can be made on joining UniSuper or at a later time by completing and signing a 'Payment of UniSuper Employee Standard Member Contribution from Pre-Tax Salary' form.

Staff members are advised to seek independent financial advice when making any decisions regarding their superannuation arrangements. Pre-tax contributions do not count towards the Government Co-Contribution.

For further information regarding salary sacrificing refer to Procedure - Salary Sacrificing.
