Contributing to your Super through Payroll

Default member contributions

For members of the Defined Benefit Division/Accumulation 2, their super contributions are made up of 17% employer contributions as well as a default member contribution. This contribution defaults to a 7% after-tax contribution. Although it is automatically set up as part of the membership, the default contribution is optional.

The default contribution can be changed from after-tax to before-tax, or before-tax to after-tax, using UniSA's Regular contribution to super form (PDF, 620kb). 

More information about the default contribution and the impact of reducing this amount can be found in UniSuper's Default member contribution fact sheet (PDF, 632.8kb). This form also includes the form to enable members to reduce the rate of the default contribution.

We encourage any member considering reducing their default contribution to make an appointment with UniSuper's On-Campus Consultant to ensure that they understand the implications for their super.

Voluntary member contributions

All employees can make voluntary member contributions to their super using UniSA’s Regular contribution to super form (PDF, 620kb). Using this form you can choose from the following options:

  • Before-tax or after-tax deduction
  • Percentage or fixed dollar amounts *1 or
  • To your UniSuper account or another compliant super fund *1

Please note that if you set up a voluntary contribution and there are insufficient funds in your pay, the contribution will be ceased automatically.

If you have any questions about how to complete this form, please contact the Super Consultant.

*1 Casual employees can only make voluntary contributions as a percentage of salary and to their UniSuper account.
