The ‘Make a contribution’ page shows the three payment methods highlighted, including ‘Pay by BPAY’, ‘Pay by cheque or money order’ and ‘Pay through your employer’.

1. BPAY

You can use BPAY for contributing $20 or more from your cheque, savings or transactional bank account. You can't make BPAY contributions from your credit card account.

Click the 'BPAY' button. The page will update to show you your unique BPAY biller code and reference number.

Write these numbers down, or print the page.

You can find your bank's website via the 'submit your payment online at' drop down box.

Otherwise, go to your bank's website the way you usually would.

Please note: we are required to send you a confirmation letter every time you make a contribution using BPAY.

Have we got your tax file number (TFN)?

Please note: you can't make a BPAY payment without your TFN. To give us your TFN, please click on the Add your TFN button, which will take you to the personal details page.

Once you have added your TFN, go back to the 'make a contribution' page and continue to make your BPAY contribution.

Alternatively, you can make a cheque or money order contribution, or contribute through your employer.

2. Through your employer

You can make contributions to your super account through your employer. You can choose to make a before-tax (concessional) contribution, or make an after-tax (non-concessional) contribution.

Click the 'pay through your employer' button.
