Super is one of the best ways to save for your future. With ongoing contributions from your employer and options to add extra money and to choose your investment plan, it makes sense to make the most of your super.
What super scheme am I in? You may have one or more super schemes with us, depending on when you joined the WA public sector. The best way to find out which scheme you are in is to look at your most recent Member Statement from us. If you are still unsure, call your Member Services Centre on 13 43 72. The current super scheme for WA public sector employees is GESB Super.
Choice of super
Most WA public sector employees have their 9.5%1 employer super contributions paid to us.
Choice of super allows WA government employees to choose their fund for these contributions. But you don't have to. You can do nothing and your employer contributions will continue to be paid to us.
If your employer contributions are being paid into your West State Super or GESB Super account, you have two options: option 1 - do nothing and continue to have your contributions paid to us, or option 2 - have your employer contributions paid into another fund.
