What are employers' responsibilities?

The majority of Super SA members are part of the Triple S Scheme. This means that they joined a SA public sector super scheme after 4 May 1994.

While working it is compulsory for an employer to contribute 10% of an employee’s superannuation salary to their super account, regardless of whether they are part-time or full-time employees.

This is known as the Superannuation Guarantee (SG). The SA Government pays an equivalent of the SG into Triple S for eligible employees.


Members who joined Super SA prior to 4 May 1994 may be members of one of the Defined Benefit schemes, either the Lump Sum (joined between 31 May 1986 and 3 May 1994) or Pension Scheme (joined prior to 30 May 1986).

The Employer Component of the Defined Benefit schemes is different to the Superannuation Guarantee. Contact Super SA for more information.

Defined Benefit scheme members who don’t make compulsory member contributions, have salary sacrificed or received a Government Co-contribution will also have a Triple S account.
