2 1 2 About Vision Personal Plan How super works Vision Super is a profit for members superannuation fund with a proud heritage of delivering quality services to its members. We understand that your investment with us reflects the high level of trust you place in our capabilities and reputation. That is why we place member interests first.

At 30 June 2014, Vision Super as a whole had over $7.2 billion of assets invested on behalf of over 102,000 members throughout Australia. Vision Personal Plan is a product of Vision Super. This PDS is about Vision Personal Plan and the features and options it offers. For help and advice, please contact: > Member Services: or if you re calling from a regional area. 8:30am to 5:00pm Monday - Friday, not including Victorian public holidays > > Website: The Vision Personal Plan is part of a public offer fund, which is within the Local Authorities Superannuation Fund. This means as long as you are eligible to make or have contributions made on your behalf, you can become a member of Vision Personal Plan. Whether you are a full-time, part-time, temporary or casual worker, or not in paid employment, you can join Vision Personal Plan. You can also join if you are self employed. Vision Super offers nine investment options to members, five premixed options and four single sector options. Vision Super also offers a range of insurance options for members. Governance disclosure The SIS regulations require Vision Super to publish certain information on its website, including director and executive remuneration. This information is available at Vision Super publishes a Product Dashboard relating to the Balanced Growth investment option. Visit In 2014 SuperRatings awarded a 10 Year Platinum rating to Vision Super, recognising ten consecutive years of Platinum performance in superannuation. The Platinum rating is the top rating given to Australia s best superannuation products by SuperRatings. The rating statement has been reproduced with the consent of SuperRatings. For more information, you can visit the SuperRatings website (SuperRatings is an independent super research company.) Superannuation (super) is partly compulsory and can be a taxeffective way of saving for retirement. Because you generally cannot gain access to your super until between age 55 and 60 (depending on your date of birth), super is generally a longterm investment. There are some special circumstances under which you can access it earlier. Generally, if you are over 18 years of age (or under 18 years of age and working more than 30 hours per week) and earning more than $450 a month (before-tax), your employer will be paying compulsory superannuation contributions for you. Most working people can choose the fund to which their employer directs their compulsory superannuation guarantee (SG) contributions. If you don t provide your employer with complete information on which fund you want contributions paid into, then your employer will deposit your contributions into your employer's default super fund. In some instances, you may have no choice due to the terms and conditions of your employment. You can also make voluntary contributions out of your after-tax earnings or savings (called non-concessional contributions) or, by arrangement with your employer, pay additional employer contributions through salary sacrifice out of your pre-tax salary (called concessional contributions). Once you have set up an account with Vision Super, you can roll money into the Fund from any other super fund accounts that you have. If you re doing this, you must consider any exit fees the other fund/s may charge, and the impact on any existing insurance cover it provides. If you re a low to middle income earner, and make additional after-tax contributions to your super, you may also be eligible for a Government co-contribution. Super s tax-effectiveness is due to tax concessions provided by the Federal Government. There is generally a 15% tax payable on concessional contributions. The tax on concessional contributions for individuals with income (including concessional contributions) greater than $300,000 p.a. is 30%. Once in the Fund, investment earnings are taxed at a concessional rate. When you reach your superannuation preservation age (this ranges from 55 to 60, depending on your date of birth), you can withdraw your benefit at a concessional tax rate, or even pay no tax on withdrawals from age 60. There are limits to the amounts you can contribute or withdraw from your super. Visit the Australian Securities and Investments Commission website, for more information on super.

MORE INFORMATION More information about the benefits of investing with Vision Personal Plan is set out in our additional guide titled '3. Benefits of investing with Vision Super additional guide'. You should read the important information about 'Benefits of investing with Vision Super' before making a decision. GO TO The material relating to 'Benefits of investing with Vision Super' may change between the time when you read this Statement and the day when you acquire the product. All investments carry risk, including the investments you have access to as a Vision Personal Plan member. Super funds have different investment strategies and invest in a diverse range of assets, including Australian and overseas shares, property, bonds, infrastructure and cash. Each of these investment strategies present a different level of risk depending on the assets that make up the investment strategy. Those assets offering the highest long-term returns, such as equities, may also carry the highest level of short-term risk. The significant risks to your Vision Personal Plan investment will include: > market risk > changes to government policy and legislation > increases in the rate of inflation > interest rate risk > the volatility of exchange rates > liquidity risk > economic instability > equity risk > active manager risk > operational risk > natural disasters and force majeure events > custodian failure > counter party risk > longevity risk > political risk. However, investment strategies usually involve balancing the potential returns from chosen investments with the risks associated with them. Diversifying investments is a strategy that allows money to be allocated to a range of assets in order to manage risk, which includes reducing the volatility (up and down fluctuations) of investments. The appropriate level of risk for you will depend on a variety of factors, including your age, your investment timeframe, whether you have other personal wealth outside of super, and your risk tolerance. Over time, the value of your super may go up and down. The investment earnings you received in the past may not be the same as those you experience in the future. Returns are not guaranteed and you may lose some of your money. Superannuation laws may change in the future affecting your financial and retirement planning. You should try to stay informed about changes to superannuation laws and consider how any changes may affect you. Due to investment risks and other factors, your super (including your contributions and returns) may not be sufficient to adequately fund your retirement. It is worth consulting a professional financial adviser to assist you in developing an investment and savings strategy that will help you achieve your goals.

4 How we invest your money 5Vision Personal Plan s range of investment options allow you to choose investments suited to your financial goals and tolerance to risk. You should consider the likely investment return, risk and your investment timeframe when choosing an option to invest in. Past performance is no indication of future performance. Neither the Trustee, nor any employees or directors of the Trustee, guarantee the repayment of capital or the performance of the Fund or its investment options. You can invest in one or more of the following Vision Personal Plan investment options: Premixed Just Shares Growth Balanced Growth Balanced Conservative Single Sector Australian Equities International Equities Diversified Bonds Cash Vision Personal Plan members must make an investment choice upon joining the Fund. There is no default investment option available. Our premixed options feature benchmark ranges for allocations to each asset class. So the investment allocations may vary within these ranges from time to time as investment markets change. We may also vary, add or remove investment options occasionally. We will advise you in advance if this happens. You can switch between investment options to suit your changing financial goals, but be aware that doing so will incur a transaction cost (see 6. Fees and Costs - additional guide'). You can switch between investment options via the secure members area of the website or by completing and lodging the Investment Choice Election Form. Using either method, you can change your investment strategy for your existing account balance, your future contributions or for both. Balanced Growth Investment objective * To outperform the rate of increase in inflation as measured by the Consumer Price Index by 4% per annum over at least two thirds of all rolling 10 year periods. Strategy Invest in a diversified portfolio with a moderate exposure to cash and diversified bonds, and a higher exposure to shares. * The investment objectives are not forecasts or predictions. They simply represent a benchmark against which the Trustee monitors performance. Benchmark allocations The benchmark asset allocations are shown in the table below. Actual asset allocation for each asset class may vary from time to time within the indicative ranges published in the table below: Asset Class Benchmark Allocation Indicative range Australian Equities 27% 22-32% International Equities 22.5% 19-29% Private Equity 8% 2-12% Opportunistic investments 3.5% 0-7% Infrastructure 10% 6-14% Direct Property 9% 6-14% Absolute return strategies 2% 0-7% Multi Asset 2.5% 0-10% Floating rate debt 2.5% 0-10% Diversified Bonds 7.5% 7-20% Cash 5.5% 0-10% Minimum investment timeframe The minimum suggested time frame to invest in this product is medium term (5 to 10 years). Who should invest in this option? This option is designed for members who want a balance between risk and return but are prepared to accept a more aggressive asset allocation than the Balanced option. Summary risk level The risk level of this option is medium to high. The expected frequency of a negative annual return is, on average, three in 20 years. The risk of negative returns is based on a Standard Risk Measure which is based on industry guidance and allows members to compare investment options that are expected to deliver a similar number of negative annual returns over any 20 year period. The Standard Risk Measure is not a complete assessment of all forms of investment risk. For instance it does not state what the size of a negative return could be, or indicate the potential for a positive return. It is based on predictions of the future economic environment which may change over time. Further, it does not take into account the impact of administration fees and tax on the predicted negative returns.

5 Fees and costs 6This document shows fees and other costs that you may be charged. These fees and other costs may be deducted from your money, from the returns on your investment or from the assets of the superannuation entity as a whole. Other fees, such as activity fees, advice fees for personal advice and insurance fees, may also be charged, but these will depend on the nature of the activity, advice or insurance chosen by you. Taxes, insurance fees and other costs relating to insurance are set out in another part of this document. You should read all the information about fees and other costs because it is important to understand their impact on your investment. CONSUMER ADVISORY WARNING Did you know? - Small differences in both investment performance and fees and costs can have a substantial impact on your longterm 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. Your employer may be able to negotiate to pay lower administration fees. *Ask the fund or your financial adviser. To find out more - If you would like to find out more, or see the impact of the fees based on your own circumstances, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) website ( has a superannuation fee calculator to help you check out different fee options. * Fees and costs for Vision Personal Plan are not negotiable.

How management costs are charged to your account The administration fee consists of two parts: - $1.50 per week, deducted quarterly in arrears, and % p.a. (capped at $540), deducted quarterly in arrears. Both parts of the administration fee are deducted directly from your account. These amounts will be shown on your Annual Member Statement.

You can obtain personal financial advice from Vision Super Financial Planners (VSFP). Vision Super is required by law to charge for this advice where it is ongoing.

GO TO The material relating to 'Fees and costs' may change between the time when you read this Statement and the day when you acquire the product. 7How super is taxed Tax File Numbers For many, super is a tax-effective way of saving for retirement due to the tax concessions provided by the Government. There are various taxes payable in relation to super, including taxes on contributions, on investment earnings and on certain withdrawals. One of the most important things to do when you open your superannuation account is provide us with your Tax File Number (TFN). You don't have to provide us with your TFN, but if you do not you will pay extra tax on your contributions or when you access your benefit later. In some circumstances, you may not even be able to make contributions if we don t have your TFN. Without your TFN, it may also be more difficult to trace different super amounts in your name so that you receive all your super benefits when you retire. You may contact our Member Services team on or if you re calling from a regional area, if you are unsure whether Vision Super has your TFN. For independent information about how tax applies to super contributions, investment earnings, withdrawals and how super works see How tax amounts are paid by Vision Super Vision Super will deduct the tax applying to your account from your account balance, and pay it directly to the Australian Taxation Office. Super taxes Various taxes are payable in relation to super as follows: Contributions tax Superannuation Guarantee contributions and any other contributions into your super from your pre-tax pay are taxed at 15%. Individuals with an income greater than $300,000 p.a. are subject to a concessional contributions tax of 30% (concessional contributions are included as income for this purpose). Any contributions you make from your after-tax earnings or savings are not taxed on entry into the Fund. There are government-imposed limits on contributions, both pre-tax and after-tax, that can be made to super. You should be aware that if you exceed the contribution limits, additional tax will be payable. In some cases, you can pay excess contributions tax by deduction from your account. But, in other cases, you will have to pay the extra tax liability out of your own pocket. Taxes on withdrawals Withdrawals from your account may be taxed if you re aged less than 60 (and will depend on various things, such as your age, whether the benefit consists of a tax free component, etc). Once you turn 60, no tax will apply to withdrawals. Taxes on investment earnings Investment earnings in the Fund are taxed at a rate of up to 15%. MORE INFORMATION More information about how super is taxed is set out in our additional guide titled '7. How super is taxed additional guide'.

7 8Insurance in your super Vision Personal Plan members do not receive automatic insurance cover but can apply for the following cover at any time: > Death only (including terminal illness) > death (including terminal illness) and total and permanent disability (TPD), and > income protection (IP) cover. The cover is provided by CommInsure, a life insurance company (the Insurer ). The premiums associated with the insurance cover are deducted from your Vision Personal Plan account. If you die or become TPD (and satisfy all of the necessary policy conditions) the insured benefit will be paid into your account. If you suffer a temporary illness or disability (and satisfy all of the necessary policy conditions) the IP insurance benefit will be paid to you directly from the Insurer. The amount of the insured benefit depends on the level of cover applicable to you. Death only and death and TPD cover ceases at age 70. IP cover ceases at age 65. Applying for insurance cover If you would like to have insurance through your Vision Personal Plan, you will need to submit an application for cover to us. The maximum level of cover you may apply for is: > $5 million death cover > $2.5 million TPD cover, and > $30,000 per month IP cover. Your TPD cover cannot exceed your death cover and you cannot have TPD-only cover. Death only and death and TPD cover must either be age-based cover or fixed cover, but not a combination of the two. When making this application you may need to provide the Insurer with medical evidence in support of your application. Please note that your application is subject to the Insurer s approval. Premium loadings, exclusions and/or other special conditions may be imposed by the Insurer each time you undergo the Insurer s underwriting requirements. Insurance application forms can be downloaded from Age-based Death only and death and TPD cover Death only and death and TPD cover can either be age-based cover or fixed cover, and you may apply for an amount of cover that suits you (subject to the relevant terms and conditions). The value of the units for the age-based cover ranges from $87,500 per unit up to age 38 to $3,400 per unit from age 64 to 69 for the General Occupational Category, or $196,700 up to age 38 to $7,600 per unit from age 64 to 69 for the Professional Occupation Category. The amount of age-based cover that you can get reduces as you get older. If you are under age 60 you may convert your age-based cover to fixed cover at any time. IP cover You may apply for cover providing a benefit of up to 85% of your income (subject to the maximum monthly benefit of $30,000), with 75% paid as a benefit and up to 10% paid as a superannuation contribution. You may choose between a 60 day or 30 day waiting period, and a 2 year or to age 65 benefit payment period. Where you have applied for IP cover, or an increase in IP cover, you will be provided with interim accident cover (up to a maximum of $15,000 per month) until your application has been assessed and approved by the Insurer. Terminal illness benefit If you suffer from a terminal illness while you have Death only or death and TPD cover, you may be eligible for a terminal illness benefit. The amount of a terminal illness benefit is equal to the lesser of: > the amount of death cover that you have as at the date that a medical practitioner first certifies that the illness that you are suffering from will lead to your death within 12 months of the date of their certification, and > $2.5 million. When a terminal illness benefit is admitted or paid to you: > any TPD cover that you may have ends immediately; and > any death cover that you may have will be reduced by the amount of the terminal illness benefit that has been admitted or paid to you. If, after this reduction you still have remaining death cover, that reduced level of death cover will remain in place until your death. However, if your terminal illness benefit is equal to the amount of your death cover, your death cover will cease to apply. Cost of insurance cover Your insurance premiums are paid by deduction from your account. For age-based Death only cover, under the general and professional occupational grouping, the annual cost per unit is 55 cents per unit per week, or $1.23 per unit per week for death and TPD cover. Please refer to 8. Insurance in you super additional guide for the cost of income protection and fixed cover. Key Life Event cover You may apply for additional cover up to four times during the life of each policy that you hold through your Vision Personal Plan, on the occurrence of a Key Life Event (also known as a Qualifying event). When applying for additional cover under the Key Life Events option, you will need to submit an application form, satisfactorily complete the short form underwriting questions and provide supporting evidence of the event within 60 days of the event. Please note that, depending on your responses to the short form underwriting questions, you may need to complete a personal statement and provide medical evidence in support of your application. On the occurrence of a Key Life Event, you may apply to: > Death only and death and TPD cover double your existing cover, or increase your existing cover by $200,000, whichever is lesser. > IP cover increase your existing cover by up to 25%, subject to the maximum monthly benefit of $30,000, or (if applicable) reduce the waiting period from 60 days to 30 days. Please refer to 8. Insurance in your super additional guide for more information on Key Life Events. Reducing or cancelling your cover You may cancel or reduce your cover at any time by sending us: > a written notification to cancel or reduce your cover, or > a completed Insurance Application/Variation Form (which can be downloaded from Any reduction or cancellation of cover will take effect from the earlier of the date in which we receive your request, or the date specified in your request (provided it is after the date on which we receive your request). Requests to reduce or cancel cover are subject to the Fund rules, the relevant insurance policy/policies and legislation applying to your cover. If your account balance is insufficient to cover the premiums your cover will be cancelled. Vision Personal Plan Product Disclosure Statement 7

The easiest way to do this is with a certified copy of your driver s licence or passport, which shows all of this information. If you don t have a driver s licence or passport, you can still prove your identity, you will just need to show us more than one certified document from the lists in step 1, below. One will need to be a primary form of identification from the first list, like a birth certificate or Australian citizenship certificate, and one a document from the second list that shows the address where you live.

17 IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR COMPLETING FORM 214 VISION 1. THINGS YOU NEED TO CONSIDER WHEN TRANSFERRING YOUR ANNUATION When you transfer your superannuation, your entitlements under that fund may cease. You need to consider all relevant information before you make a decision to transfer your superannuation. If you ask for information, your superannuation provider must give it to you. Some of the points you may consider are: > Closure of Account This transfer may close your account (you will need to check this with your FROM fund). > Fees your FROM fund must give you information about any exit and 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. Your TO fund may also charge entry or deposit fees on transfer. Differences in fees funds charge have a significant effect on what you will have to retire on. For example, a 1% increase in fees may significantly reduce your final benefit. > 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. 2. THIS FORM CAN NOT BE USED TO: > Transfer benefits if you don t know where your superannuation is > Transfer benefits from multiple funds on this one form a separate form must be completed for each fund you wish to transfer superannuation from > Change the fund to which your employer pays contributions on your behalf. The Standard Choice Form must be used > Open a superannuation account, or > Transfer benefits under certain conditions or circumstances, for example if there is a superannuation agreement under the Family Law Act 1975 in place. 3. WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT QUOTE MY TAX FILE NUMBER (TFN) You are not obligated to provide your TFN to your superannuation fund. However, if you do not provide your TFN, your fund may be taxed at the highest marginal tax rate plus the Medicare levy on contributions made to your account in the year, compared to the concessional tax rate of 15%. Your fund will usually deduct this additional tax from your account. If your superannuation fund does not have your TFN, you will not be able to make personal contributions to your superannuation account. Choosing to quote your TFN will also make it easier to keep track of your superannuation in the future. 4. WHAT HAPPENS TO MY FUTURE EMPLOYER CONTRIBUTIONS? Using this form to transfer your benefits will not change the fund to which your employer pays your contributions and may close the account you are transferring your benefits FROM. If you wish to change the fund into which your contributions are being paid, please complete the Standard Choice Form enclosed and return it to your employer. IMPORTANT: PLEASE SEND ORIGINAL TO VISION
