2. Work out how much you’d like to contribute
Before you complete the 'Super contributions' form, you need to know how much you’d like to contribute to your super. You can choose any amount that suits you.
If you’re not sure how much you’d like to contribute, try our Retirement planning calculator.
3. Download the form
Click this link to download a 'Super contributions' form. You will need to print out the form as you cannot type directly into the form. You can only use this Super contributions form for after-tax contributions.
The form has six sections.
Reminder: If you intend to claim a tax deduction on these contributions, do not complete this form. You need to complete the Notice of intent to claim or vary a tax deduction form instead.
4. Provide your personal details
These details include your name, date of birth, and contact details.
5. Have you supplied your tax file number (TFN)?
We can only accept after-tax contributions from you if we have your TFN on file. If you haven’t already, you can provide your TFN in Member Online, by completing a Tax file number form or by calling us on 13 43 72.
6. Confirm your super account
In this step, you need to select GESB Super or West State Super depending on which account you have. If you’re not sure which account you have, check your last member statement or login to Member Online.
If you’re a Gold State Super member and don’t have one of those accounts yet, we’ll automatically open a GESB Super account for you.
7. Enter the amount you would like to contribute
Here is where you need to write the amount you would like to contribute by cheque or money order. Please attach your cheque or money order (made payable to GESB) to the form when you post the form.
8. Check that you're eligible to make contributions
You can only contribute extra to your super when you are under the age of 65 or, if you are between 65 and 75, you must have worked at least 40 hours in a period of 30 days in the current financial year, or if you are exempt from the work test.
9. Read and sign the declaration
When you sign the form, you’ll need to acknowledge that you understand the conditions that apply to your super account. All of this information is included in the Contributing to your super brochure.
10. Send the form in
Now that you’ve completed and signed your 'Super contributions' form, you need to send it (with your cheque or money order attached) to:
PO Box J 755
Perth WA 6842
Australia Post can take up to six business days to deliver regular mail. You will need to take this into account when submitting contributions to us, especially when you need to meet a processing deadline.
