Making contributions

 

There are three ways to ensure your contributions reach us before the end of the financial year.

If you're contributing via BPAY, you can continue to make contributions to your member account up until 5pm on Friday 26 June 2015.

If you make a contribution via BPAY after this time, the contribution amount may not appear on your 30 June 2015 member statement. However, it will still be counted towards any applicable Government super co-contribution provided it's received into the Fund's bank account by 30 June 2015.

Check with your financial institution about BPAY processing times to ensure any contributions made by BPAY reach us in time.

 

Payroll deduction

If you plan on making a personal contribution via a payroll deduction, you should speak with your employer's payroll department as soon as possible.

Your contribution should generally be received by us from your employer by no later than 5pm on Friday 26 June 2015.

To be eligible for the Government co-contribution for this year, cheques must be received by 24 June.

Contributions received by cheque may take up to three working days to be allocated to your account following receipt of the cheque and your completed form.

We cannot accept responsibility for ensuring contributions are banked for any cheques received after Wednesday 24 June 2015 cut-off, sent to an incorrect address or that cannot be banked due to incorrect payee details.

Please ensure that all details on the cheque and form are correct before sending to us, and allow sufficient time for the cheque to reach us and be processed to your account before Wednesday 24 June 2015. Unfortunately, the trustee cannot accept responsibility for missed co-contribution payments where your contributions are received after the above cut-off times.

Please note that we do not accept cash or credit card payments.
