My Member Benefit Statement
Five simple tips to make the most of your Member Benefit Statement.
1. Learn one new thing
Take the opportunity to learn one new thing about your super each time we send you a Member Benefit Statement. No matter how small or large, everything you learn will help you make better decisions about your account.
2. Check your personal details
Take a quick look at the personal details on your Member Benefit Statement. Are your name and address correct? Do we have a current email address for you? Also, check your date of birth and relevant service dates. If these are incorrect, your benefit calculation and taxation estimates could also be incorrect.
3. Check you have provided your tax file number
If you want to contribute to super, you will need to provide your tax file number. We must return personal contributions to you if you have not provided your tax file number. You may also be subject to additional tax on employer contributions such as salary sacrifice if you do not provide your tax file number. The Personal details section of your statement will advise if you have provided your tax file number.
4. Check your Death benefit nomination has been recorded correctly
Will your Death benefit go where you want it to? Unless you nominate otherwise, your Death benefit will be paid to your surviving partner. See our Insurance benefits page for further information.
5. Work to a plan
Is saving for your retirement part of your household budget? It should be. Use the MoneySmart Budget Planner tool to keep track of your expenses and plan how you spend your money. It will help you to decide how much you can afford to contribute to your benefit.
