You must contribute 5% or more of your salary each fortnight to MilitarySuper.

Please ensure Defence has your tax file number and that you consider your maximum benefit limits:

In this section learn about:

Super contribution limits

Concessional contributions

Concessional contributions include salary sacrifice amounts, the quarterly SG-OTE top up and notional defined benefit contributions.

Further information about the contribution cap for concessional contributions is available from the ATO website

Non-concessional contributions

Non-concessional contributions are personal member contributions; these amounts come from after-tax money and have no tax deduction claimed on them.

What happens if I or my employer exceed my limit?

You receive an assessment and release authority form from the Australian Taxation Office (ATO).

How must I pay the assessment?

Pay the ATO directly, submit an ATO release authority form to another super fund, or elect to use your MilitarySuper ancillary contributions (subject to availability). Your mandatory personal contributions and employer benefit comprise a defined benefit and cannot be used by law to discharge a release authority.
