Superannuation is a compulsory accumulation of employer/employee contributions to provide income during retirement, or in the case of permanent or temporary disablement. It is a form of long-term saving and investment to provide staff with a pension or lump sum payment on retirement. These arrangements have significant taxation benefits.

All new staff must complete a UniSuper Application form in accordance with the conditions of employment as specified in the letter of offer. The application form is at the back of the Welcome to UniSuper booklet, provided to you during your first week of employment.

For more details on UniSuper, its products, services, and investment performance, please refer to your Welcome to UniSuper booklet, or visit the UniSuper website

Additional information to be read in conjunction with Academic A-D offer letters issued from 22 August 2013
