Ancillary Membership

An Ancillary Membership allows you to make additional contributions into an accumulation account to take advantage of flexible contribution and investment options.

‘Ancillary contributions’ describe a range of voluntary contributions or transfers contributing members can make to a MilitarySuper Ancillary account to build their final retirement benefit. You can contribute these amounts to your own super or on behalf of your spouse.

Preserved benefit members cannot make ancillary contributions.

MilitarySuper accepts six types of ancillary contributions:

  1. Government contributions, including co-contributions and low income contributions
  2. Transfer (or roll in) amounts
  3. Salary sacrifice contributions
  4. Additional personal contributions
  5. Spouse contributions
  6. SG/OTE amounts

MilitarySuper cannot accept some contributions if we don’t have your tax file number.

Please also keep your super contribution limits in mind when contributing.

Ancillary contributions comprise a separate retirement benefit for contributing MilitarySuper and DFRDB members. Your ancillary benefit accrues as accumulated interest and fluctuates in line with MilitarySuper scheme earnings. Ancillary contributions do not impact the calculation of your retirement pay in any way.
