Employees have the ability to direct contributions to any compliant superannuation fund.

Our default scheme for superannuation guarantee contributions is Aware Super (previously known as First State Super). Employees who have joined the department since October 1992 and have not provided alternative superannuation fund details have automatically become members of this fund.

Employees who commenced with the department prior to October 1992 may be members of the State Superannuation Scheme or the State Authorities Superannuation Scheme. Both of these funds are now closed to new membership.

Employees may choose another complying super fund to have their employer contributions paid into.

Should you wish to nominate a superannuation fund other than Aware Super use the ATO Superannuation standard choice form to advise us.
