Contact Cbus for a copy of the PDS for these super products. You can join Cbus using the Join Cbus Personal Super form at the back of the PDS or online at What is super? Super is a tool to help you save for your retirement. That s why the Government takes less tax from super than from other investments, helping you save more towards your future. If you re not joining Cbus through an employer, you can choose your own super fund. Cbus Personal Super lets you choose how much and often you would like to invest into your super. How you can boost your super You can contribute to your Cbus super account whenever you like within government limits. Some easy ways you can contribute to your super include: from your before-tax salary (salary sacrifice) from your after-tax salary. You may also be eligible for a government co-contribution of up to $500. Also, combining your super accounts with Cbus could make your super easier to manage and you may save on fees. Limits on contributions There are limits on how much you can contribute to your super. See How super is taxed on page 5 for details. Accessing your super Super is designed to help you save for your retirement. That means generally you can t access it until you retire after you reach your preservation age (shown in the table below) or age 65.

Shares, property and some alternative investments can have high returns, but also more risk of loss in the short term. Cash and fixed interest investments generally have lower, but more stable, returns. When investing in super it s important you keep in mind that: the value of your investment can go up or down the level of investment returns can vary future returns may be different from past returns returns are not guaranteed and you may lose some of your money your super savings may not grow enough through your contributions and investment returns to support you when you retire your super might not last your whole retirement (you may live longer than average ), and super laws may change in the future. What level of risk should your super have? Cbus offers you a range of investment options, each with a different level of risk. When choosing an option or mix of options to invest in, you need to think about: your age how close you are to retirement (your investment timeframe) other investments you hold, such as savings, property or shares, and the level of risk you re comfortable with. 5 How we invest your money This section gives you a summary of how Cbus invests your super. Cbus gives you a range of investment options to choose from depending on how much, or how little, risk you want to take: Cash Savings Conservative Growth (Cbus MySuper) High Growth Cbus Self Managed - Eligible members can invest directly in Australian shares, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs), term deposits and Managed Investments including property and infrastructure assets. If you don t want to choose, your super will automatically be invested in our default option, Growth (Cbus MySuper). As a MySuper authorised option, it suits people who plan to have their super invested for the long-term (seven years or longer). Cbus may add new investment options, remove an existing option or change an option (its strategic asset allocation or objective). If any of these changes are significant, we ll write to you or update you in our member magazine, Cbus News. The right investment option for you will depend on its likely return, the amount of risk you re happy to take to achieve it, and how many years you have until you retire. Join Cbus Personal Super 3

4 5 How we invest your money continued The Growth (Cbus MySuper) option (our default option) This option suits people who can accept negative returns in some years (expected to happen 3 in 20 years) but expect long-term returns to be well above inflation. It s invested in a range of assets including shares, property, infrastructure and cash. Investment objective Suggested minimum investment timeframe Risk level Risk band 5 To deliver an after-tax return of inflation plus 3.25% a year over rolling ten-year periods, 75% of the time. The likelihood of negative annual returns is 3 years in every 20 years. Members should expect to invest for 7 years or more. Medium to high The risk level is based on an industry-wide standard risk measure. It s based on the number of expected negative annual returns over a 20-year period. The standard risk measure ranges across seven risk bands, from 1 (very low risk) to 7 (very high risk). It doesn t measure all forms of investment risk. Long Term Strategic Asset Allocation (LTSAA) and ranges for the Growth (Cbus MySuper) option Asset Class LTSAA Range Australian shares 26.5% % International shares 21.5% % Private equity 2.0% Opportunistic growth 5.0% % Infrastructure 11.0% % Property 13.0% % Alternative debt (formerly Credit) 6.0% % Fixed interest 12.0% % Cash 3.0% % The LTSAA and ranges apply from 1 November The range shown is the lowest and highest percentage Cbus will invest in an asset class.

Changing investment options There are no fees for changing (switching) between options and you can switch once a week. You can invest across any or all options. You can also invest your existing super account differently to any future contributions coming into your account.

Terms, conditions and costs apply for investing in the Cbus Self Managed investment option. For more information read the Cbus Self Managed Investment Guide. We strongly recommend you seek advice before you change how your super s invested. Before you switch It s important to understand the range of investment options available, your investment timeframe and the impact of switching investment options, particularly in response to short-term market volatility. Cbus recommends you seek financial advice prior to making an investment switch. If you re considering switching investment options and would like help in understanding what option may suit your circumstances, please call us on Environment, Social and Governance Cbus expects investment managers to consider environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) factors (including labour standards) when choosing Cbus investments. You should read the important information about How we invest your money before making a decision. Go to and read the Investment handbook and the Cbus Self Managed Investment Guide. You should also read the important information about our ESG policy at The material relating to How we invest your money may change between the time you read this statement and the day when you acquire this product. 6 Fees and costs Did you know? Small differences in both investment performance and fees and costs can have a substantial impact on your long-term returns. For example, total annual fees and costs of 2% of your account balance rather than 1% could reduce your final return by up to 20% over a 30-year period (for example, reduce it from $100,000 to $80,000). You should consider whether features such as superior investment performance or the provision of better member services justify higher fees and costs. You may be able to negotiate to pay lower contribution fees and management costs where applicable. Ask the fund or your financial adviser. To find out more If you would like to find out more, or see the impact of fees based on your own circumstances, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) website has a superannuation calculator to help you check out different fee options. As Cbus only charges fees to cover costs, not to make a profit, you re unable to negotiate the fees set out in this PDS. The main fees to set up and manage your account shown on page 5 are based on the Growth (Cbus MySuper) option. These fees and costs may be deducted from your account or from investment returns before the crediting rate is applied to your account. This information can be used to compare Cbus costs with other super funds. 4 Join Cbus Personal Super

It can be taxed at different times: on contributions into an account, investment earnings and withdrawals. Tax on contributions Tax on contributions depends on your age, income and the amount and type of contribution. In most cases tax is deducted from your account after the contribution is received, the fund then pays tax to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). There are two kinds of super contributions: before-tax (concessional) contributions: employer, salary sacrifice after-tax (non-concessional) contributions: personal contributions. There are caps (limits) on how much you can contribute and different tax rates apply: see the table below. Type of contribution Before-tax (concessional) After-tax (nonconcessional) 15% * tax on amounts up to $30,000 a year. If you turn 50 or older in the 2015/16 financial year you can contribute up to $35,000. Amounts in excess of the cap are added to your assessable income and taxed at your marginal rate (plus an interest charge). 0% tax on amounts up to $180,000 a year. If under 65, you can contribute $540,000 in the first year of a three year period. Contributions in excess of the cap amount are taxed at 45%^. * An additional 15% tax is charged on some or all of these contributions if an individual s annual income (including before-tax contributions) is over $300,000. ^ Plus Medicare Levy and Temporary Budget Repair Levy. If contributions to your super are over the cap limit you ll be subject to the higher tax. In some circumstances this can be taken out of your account in the fund or you can obtain a refund on the excess contributions (go to for more information on tax). There are limits on how much you can contribute (contribution caps). If you contribute more than these limits you may pay extra tax. See the table Type of contribution on page 5.

6 7 How super is taxed continued Tax deductions If you re eligible you may be able to claim your personal contributions to Cbus during the year as a deduction. To claim the deduction you must notify Cbus on the ATO s NAT form (visit before the earlier of: withdrawing any super, or, lodging your tax return for the financial year in which the contribution was made, or before the end of the financial year after you made the contribution. You ll need a letter from Cbus confirming your ATO form has been received and accepted by the Trustee before you can claim the deduction in your tax return. The amount you claim will be taxed at 15% in the fund. Tax on withdrawals If you re under age 60, tax is deducted from super withdrawals before you receive them. If you re aged 60 or over, withdrawals are generally tax free. Your super benefit is divided into two components. Component Tax if you re under 60 Tax-free No tax payable Taxable If you re under 55, taxed at 20% *. If you re years, the first $195,000^ is tax-free and the balance is taxed at 15% *. * ^ Plus Medicare Levy Tax-free threshold for 2015/16 The $195,000 lifetime limit is the total of all the taxable payments you receive or are paid before you reach age 60 (even if you receive them in different financial years). Tax on investment earnings Investment earnings are taxed at up to 15%. This tax is deducted from the interest rate that applies to your super, before the earnings are added to your account. Why you should provide your Tax File Number (TFN) If we don t have your TFN: your before-tax super contributions and withdrawals are taxed at a higher rate Cbus can t accept after-tax contributions from you it may be harder to find any lost super or combine your super accounts.

Anti-detriment amount An anti-detriment amount is added to death benefits paid by Cbus to eligible beneficiaries (see Other information on page 8 to read more about who can be a beneficiary). The anti-detriment payment amount is roughly equal to the contributions tax on the account. It s calculated on the taxable component only, not on the tax-free component on any death benefit paid to the account holder s eligible beneficiaries. 8 Insurance in your super This section is a snapshot of the types of insurance available through Cbus.

ÜWHAT HAPPENS TO MY FUTURE EMPLOYER CONTRIBUTIONS? Using this form to transfer your benefi ts will not change the fund to which your employer pays your contributions and may close the account you are transferring your benefi ts FROM. If you wish to change the fund into which your contributions are being paid, you will need to speak to your employer about choice. For the appropriate forms and information about whether you are eligible to choose the fund to which your employer contributions are made, visit call the Australian Taxation Offi ce on or download a copy from ÜTHINGS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN TRANSFERRING YOUR SUPER When you transfer your super, your entitlements under that fund may cease. You need to consider all relevant information before you make a decision to transfer your super. If you ask for information your super provider must give it to you. Some of the points you may consider are: Fees your FROM fund must give you information about any exit or withdrawal fees. If you are not aware of the fees that may apply, you should contact your fund for further information before completing this form. The fees could include administration fees as well as exit or withdrawal fees. Differences in fees funds charge can have a signifi cant effect on what you will have to retire on. For example, a 1% increase in fees may signifi cantly reduce your fi nal benefi t. Death and disability benefits your FROM fund may insure you against death, illness or an accident which leaves you unable to return to work. If you choose to leave your current fund, you may lose any insurance entitlements you have. Other funds may not offer insurance, or may require you to pass a medical examination before they cover you. When considering a new fund, you may wish to check the costs and amount of any cover offered. ÜWHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT QUOTE MY TAX FILE NUMBER (TFN)? You are not obliged to provide your TFN to Cbus. However, if you do not provide your TFN, your benefi t may be taxed at the highest marginal tax rate plus other Government levies on contributions made to your account in the year, compared to the concessional tax rate of 15%. Cbus may deduct this additional tax from your account. If Cbus does not have your TFN, you will not be able to make personal contributions to your super account. Choosing to quote your TFN will also make it easier to keep track of your super in the future. Under the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993, Cbus is authorised to collect your TFN, which will only be used for lawful purposes. These purposes may change in the future as a result of legislative change. The TFN may be disclosed to another super provider, when your benefi ts are being transferred, unless you request in writing that your TFN is not to be disclosed to any other trustee. ÜHAVE YOU CHANGED YOUR NAME OR ARE YOU SIGNING ON BEHALF OF ANOTHER PERSON? If you have changed your name or are signing on behalf of the applicant, you will need to provide a certifi ed linking document. A linking document is a document that proves a relationship exists between two (or more) names. The following table contains information about suitable linking documents. Purpose Change of name Signed on behalf of the applicant Suitable linking documents Marriage certifi cate, deed poll or change of name certifi cate from the Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Offi ce Guardianship papers or Power of Attorney If you wish to rollover your other super accounts, complete and include this form with your Join Cbus Personal Super form and send to: Cbus Locked Bag 999, Carlton South VIC 3053
