Choice of Fund
The University offers choice of fund to eligible members covered by the General Staff Enterprise Agreement.
Staff members covered by the Academic Staff Enterprise Agreement are precluded from choice of fund. Staff who are existing members of the UniSuper Defined Benefit Plan or the QSuper Defined Benefit Plan are also exempt from choice of fund.
If you wish to elect a super fund other than UniSuper, please complete a Superannuation (super) Standard Choice Form. Under choice of fund legislation, the University is required to remit the Super Guarantee (SG) component (9.5%) to the elected choice of fund. Where a staff member has elected a choice fund, 9.5% will be paid to the choice fund and the balance of contributions will be paid to UniSuper. You will be required to transfer to the Accumulation 1 plan of UniSuper to receive these contributions and sign a "Choice of Fund Waiver" form which the Staff Benefits Team will provide upon application.
More information about choosing your own superannuation fund can be found at the ATO.
