Our GESB member charter
GESB is a WA Government statutory authority.
- Under the State Superannuation Act 2000, our Board oversees the strategic direction and management of a global investment portfolio of over $30 billion as at 31 December 2019 on behalf of current and former WA public sector workers
We put members first
The services we provide and the way in which we provide them are designed to help you improve your financial future. We offer:
- A range of super, insurance and retirement products
- Seminars and webinars on a number of topics at no extra cost to you
- Access to our products and services online or over the phone
- Member Online - an online portal to help you manage your super easily and securely
- A variety of ways for members with special needs to access information about their super
- And, for those members who have more specific needs, we offer our Retirement Options Service at a cost to you
We make it easy for you to track and manage your super
You can find electronic member statements in Member Online - your secure, personal online super account. eStatements have the same information as a mailed statement and:
- Help keep your fees low
- Give you easy access to all of your member statements in one place
- Are kinder on the environment
- Are available earlier than a paper statement
From 1 January 2018, if we have your email address, you’ll receive important information about your account electronically, unless you have opted out. This includes your member statement, Annual Fund Update, and notification of any material changes or events which may affect your account.
With paperless first you’ll receive an email when important information is available on our website or through Member Online, with details on how to access it.
You will still be able to choose to receive a paper statement in the mail, by updating your communication preferences in the ‘personal details page’ of Member Online.

If you let us know about your needs, we can provide super information in languages other than English. We can also provide Braille or audio for vision impaired members.
Benefit payments - GESB Super, West State Super, Retirement Income Pension and Gold State Super
We aim to process your request within 10 working days of receiving your form and all necessary information for GESB Super, West State Super and Retirement Income Pension payments, and within 20 working days for Gold State Super payments. However, there are circumstances where it may take us longer to process your request.
