Super and Leave

When you take leave, there might be an impact on the contributions that are paid to your super.

Percentage-based contributions, like your employer contributions, will reduce if you’re taking leave at half-pay, entering a purchased leave arrangement or taking leave without pay.

Fixed-dollar contributions will continue at their nominated rate, unless your pay can’t cover the contribution, in which case your contribution will be ceased.

If you’re planning on taking a period of leave at reduced pay, leave without pay or entering a purchased leave arrangement, please ensure you review your contributions.

If you want to minimise the impact of purchased leave on your super, a Super Maintenance arrangement may help you
