- Making contributions - salary sacrifice and after-tax

For Triple S, Lump Sum Scheme, Pension Scheme and Super SA Select members there are two types of contribution you can make to your super:

  1. After-tax contributions: making contributions to your super from your after-tax or take home pay. These can be deducted straight from your pay or made as one-off payments.
  2. Salary sacrifice contributions: having a set percentage or fixed amount of your salary deducted from your before-tax or gross salary and put towards your super.

Note: investors in the Flexible Rollover Product are only able to make after-tax contributions to their account.

Things to consider:
Triple S and Super SA Select members Lump Sum and Pension Scheme members:
  • Contribute 4.5% or more from your after-tax salary and your employer contribution will increase to 10%.
  • Depending on your situation, there may be tax advantages to making salary sacrifice contributions.
  • You are already making after-tax contributions to your super (this is the case for most members) and if you’re on track with your points it may be worthwhile considering salary sacrifice.
  • You’re on track with your points - ie you’re on track to receive your maximum employer entitlement. This is the case if your Accrued Points are within one point of the Standard Point target (you can check this on your Annual Statement). Consequently any excess after-tax contribution amounts will not be factored into your lump sum and will simply be refunded at retirement with investment earnings.
  • Depending on your situation, there may be tax advantages to making salary sacrifice contributions.

Where to find out more:

  • Fact sheets and forms for after-tax contributions and salary sacrifice are available in the Forms and Publications section under the heading "Making additional contributions".
  • Use the Personal Contributions calculator on our website to run through various calculations – the calculator also contains links to the appropriate forms.
  • Super SA recommends you seek professional financial advice about your super. Triple S members have access to commission-free financial advice and the fee can be deducted from your super account.

- Beneficiaries

Should you die, your entitlement will be paid to your surviving spouse and/or a putative spouse. Should you not have a partner, the entitlement will be paid to your Estate.

Legal Personal Representative

Triple S members and Flexible Rollover Product and Income Stream investors can nominate for their death benefit to be paid to their nominated Legal Personal Representative (LPR) (ie estate). By nominating their legal personal representative, the death benefit will be paid to their Estate rather than their spouse and distributed according to their Will, or if they do not have one, the Statutes.   Nominating a legal personal representative is not the same as nominating a beneficiary. The rules do not allow you to nominate specific beneficiaries.  

To find out more read the fact sheet and to apply complete the form.

Public Trustee and Wills
Super SA recommends that members have an up to date Will. If you don’t have a Will when you die, you die intestate, and your assets will be distributed according to the relevant State legislation. Further information can be found on the Public Trustee website. They provide a range of services and run seminars in the city and in regional locations.

- Leaving public sector employment - your options

If you leave the SA public service you have two options when it comes to your Triple S account:

  1. Preserve your Triple S account and keep the ability to access your super at age 55 (subject to applicable tax rates); or
  2. Roll out your super to a complying super fund.

For further information read the "Triple S Accessing Your Super" fact sheet.

Triple S has key features you won’t find at other super funds:

  • You can access your super at age 55 (subject to applicable tax rates)
  • That’s up to 5 years earlier than most other super schemes
  • Access to member-only platinum rated retirement products

 Rolling your super to another super fund:

  • Super SA is an untaxed or tax deferred fund. When you roll your entitlement over the "taxable (untaxed)" portion will be taxed at 15% by the receiving fund.
  • By rolling your super out of Super SA your super will become subject to Commonwealth Government preservation rules.

How to keep your Death and TPD insurance with Super SA

Your death and disability cover expires once you cease working in the public sector, however, if you're working outside of the SA public sector you can:

Please note that in the Flexible Rollover Product your super is subject to Commonwealth preservation rules.
