For a quick overview on what information the Rest Super PDS contains, click on our new overview video below.
Employees can update their details online
Keeping track of their super is a great thing to encourage employees to do. It’s as easy as logging into MemberAccess. Once employees are logged in they can check their balance, update their insurance and other details online.
Encouraging employees to consolidate their super
Like a lot of people, your employees may have multiple super accounts. Consolidating their super will help them manage their super better, while also helping them save on fees.
If your employee’s income is below $54,837 (for the 2020-21 financial year). the government may give him or her a super boost of $500*. Plus there are many other ways they can boost their Super.
*The amount of government co-contribution you can receive depends on how much you contribute and what your income is.
How to make an insurance claim
We aren’t always ready for the unexpected and that’s when a member’s default insurance comes into play. If your employees need to make a claim they’ll need to contact Rest and we’ll talk them through the claims process, ensuring they understand what’s involved before we send them the paperwork to complete.
How to change their insurance
If your employees are in Rest Super, they can easily change or cancel their existing cover by calling us on 1300 300 778 or logging in to MemberAccess and update their insurance online. For all other Rest members, they’ll need to download and fill out a change insurance cover form or call to find out the next best steps.
Many employers find the expertise and experience of older employers valuable and are keen to have them continue working after they reach the age of 58. If you have employees who have reached their preservation age and are still working, they could use a portion of their super to provide a regular income. A Rest Pension Transition to Retirement account gives them more options while they’re still working, and it can also mean more money when they retire.
