Member and employer contributions

Understand how your defined benefit super grows, including member and employer contributions.

In a defined benefit fund, the amount you get—your retirement benefit—is defined in your fund rules and is usually calculated using a formula that is based on:

  • contributions made by your employer and contributions made by you (including extra contributions),
  • your length of employment with the employer, and
  • your final average salary when you retire.

Fund rules differ
