3 2 How superannuation works The following information is incorporated into section two of the PDS: Contributions to the Fund You are not required to contribute to the Fund. If you choose to make voluntary contributions these will be credited to your Savings Account (see Section 3). You need to decide whether to make these contributions on a before-tax or after-tax basis. As a defined benefit member, the Fund s actuary calculates your Notional Taxed Contributions. These are not the same as the actual contributions made by your employer to fund your defined benefits. The actual contributions may be higher or lower than your Notional Taxed Contributions. If you are considering making contributions from your before-tax pay, you should first check the level of your Notional Taxed Contributions and any additional employer contributions, to ensure that you don t unintentionally exceed the Concessional Contribution limit. Types of contributions Concessional (before-tax) contributions include superannuation guarantee, employer and salary sacrifice contributions Non-concessional (after-tax) contributions Government co-contributions Transfers from other superannuation funds Your concessional contributions include your notional taxed contributions, any contributions to your Additional Employer Account or Special Account, and any voluntary before-tax contributions you make (refer to Section 3 for more information). Concessional (before-tax) contributions are those made from your pay before income tax is calculated and deducted. This may have income tax advantages, depending on your circumstances. You should be aware of the following rules governing concessional contributions: Concessional contributions are taxed concessionally (15% contributions tax is deducted from before-tax contributions) up to a Government limit 1. Excess concessional contributions will be taxed at your marginal rate plus the Medicare levy with a 15% tax off set. In most cases, an excess concessional contribution charge will be payable. Any concessional contributions you make in excess of the limit will also count towards your after-tax contributions limit for that financial year. Contributions tax is deducted from all before-tax contributions made to your account. If Nestlé Super does not have your tax file number (TFN), all before-tax contributions will be taxed at the top marginal income tax rate plus Medicare levy. From age 65 you must be working on at least a part-time basis (i.e. have worked for at least 40 hours in a period of not more than 30 consecutive days in the current financial year) to make voluntary before-tax contributions. Non-concessional (after-tax) contributions are made from your pay after income tax has been deducted (or from your personal savings). You should be aware of the following rules governing non-concessional contributions: Because you have already paid income tax on these contributions, there is no contributions tax payable. However, if you exceed your non-concessional contribution limit, excess contributions will be taxed at the top marginal rate plus Medicare levy. If you are under age 65, you do not need to be employed to make after-tax contributions. From age 65, you can continue to make after-tax contributions until you turn 75, provided you are working on at least a parttime basis. Non-concessional contributions are subject to a Government limit 1. You cannot make non-concessional contributions unless Nestlé Super has your TFN. If your total income is below the relevant threshold and you make after-tax contributions, the Government may provide a co-contribution 1. If you are eligible to receive co-contributions, the Government will pay the contribution directly to your account. You can transfer money from other superannuation funds to your account at any time. By consolidating your super into one fund, you can avoid paying multiple account keeping fees and you ll only receive one set of paperwork. 1 For more information on contribution limits and the co-contribution amount including the current threshold, call the Nestlé Super Hotline. 2

4 Withdrawing your super Superannuation is a long-term investment, with special tax advantages that are designed to encourage you to save for retirement. Because of this, the Government restricts when and how you can access your superannuation. When can you withdraw your super? Most, if not all, of your super is preserved (i.e. inaccessible) until you meet one of the following conditions of release: retire at or after your preservation age; cease employment at or after age 60; reach age 65; become permanently incapacitated; become terminally ill or die; or are a temporary resident permanently leaving Australia. What if I want to transfer my existing account balance to another fund? As a Defined Benefit member of Nestlé Super you may be able to elect to transfer some of your benefit to another fund. Please refer to Portability in section three of this document. Your superannuation (excluding any non-preserved amount) must be preserved in a complying superannuation fund until you meet one of the conditions of release above. What happens when you turn 65? You can withdraw your super as a lump sum or transfer it to a retirement income product, such as the Nestlé Super Account Based Pension, but may be required to maintain a minimum balance in your current account see Portability in section three of this document. If you leave the Defined Benefit category, you can keep your super in the Retained Members category of Nestlé Super, provided it is above the minimum balance. Your preservation age depends on the year you were born. Date of birth Preservation age Before 1 July /7/ /6/ /7/ /6/ /7/ /6/ /7/ /6/ After 30 June

5 3 Benefits of investing with Nestlé Super The following information is incorporated into section three of the PDS: Your accounts in the Fund You will have one or more of the following accounts. Retirement Account Every Defined Benefit member has a Retirement Account this is one of the accounts to which Nestlé may contribute on your behalf. As part of your defined benefit, 6.67% of your Fund Salary is allocated to your Retirement Account. No deduction is made from this account for tax or insurance purposes. A fee is deducted to meet some of the Fund s running costs. The Fund Earning Rate which applies to your Retirement Account is based on the performance of the Growth option. You cannot choose a different investment option for your Retirement Account. Nestlé pays 15% contributions tax for you before the 6.67% net amount is credited to your Retirement Account. The total amount contributed (based on a contributions tax rate of 15%) is equivalent to a before tax contribution of 7.84% of your Fund salary. Additional Employer Account or Special Account Some Defined Benefit members may be eligible to receive additional Company contributions. If this applies to you the contributions will be paid into your Additional Employer Account or Special Account (depending on your eligibility). The Fund Earning Rate that is applied to your Additional Employer Account or Special Account depends on your chosen investment option. Your accumulation accounts Savings Account If you make voluntary contributions or receive Government co-contributions, they are held in your Savings Account. Contributions tax is deducted from all salary sacrifice contributions. If you take out optional extra insurance, the premiums for this cover are deducted from your Savings Account. The Fund Earning Rate that is applied to your Savings Account depends on your chosen investment option. Rollover Account You can roll over superannuation benefits into the Fund at any time. Any rollovers are held in your Rollover Account. If the Fund is required to pay tax on your rollover, it will be deducted from the initial rollover amount. The Fund Earning Rate that is applied to your Rollover Account depends on your chosen investment option. Surcharge Account The Government s superannuation surcharge tax was abolished with effect from 1 July If the ATO levies surcharge tax against your benefits, the Fund will pay this on your behalf and record the amount in your Surcharge Account. The part of your Surcharge Account that is related to your Retirement Account is invested in the Growth option. Refer to Section 5 for information about the Fund Earning Rate that is applied to the balance of your Surcharge Account. 4

6 Your benefits in the Fund You ll receive a benefit from the Fund if: You retire from Nestlé. You become totally and permanently disabled or die while you are a member of the Fund. You become temporarily disabled and are unable to work after a qualifying period. You leave Nestlé and/or the Fund for any other reason. The Fund is a defined benefit fund. This means some of your Retirement Benefit, Death Benefit and Total and Permanent Disablement Benefit may be calculated using a formula based on your years of Fund membership and your final average Fund Salary. Nestlé contributes whatever is required to meet the benefits of members in the Fund (other than to the extent they are financed by members). Your Leaving Service Benefit You will receive a Leaving Service Benefit if you leave your employment with Nestlé or leave the Fund while you are a Defined Benefit member and you are not entitled to a Retirement or Total and Permanent Disablement Benefit. Your Leaving Service Benefit is the sum of your: Retirement Account Savings Account (if you have one) Rollover Account (if you have one) Surcharge Account (if you have one) Your Retirement Benefit You are entitled to a Retirement Benefit if you leave Nestlé or the Fund while you are a Defined Benefit member and: You are aged between 55 and 70 years; You ve been employed continuously by Nestlé for five or more years; and You are not claiming a Total and Permanent Disablement Benefit from the Fund. Your Retirement Benefit is the sum of your: Core Benefit (or your Retirement Account if greater) Savings Account (if you have one) Rollover Account (if you have one) Surcharge Account (if you have one) Additional Employer Account and/or Special Account (if you have one) Your Core Benefit is equal to: 8 1 /3% x Your Final Average Salary* x your years and complete months of the Fund membership * Your Final Average Salary is the average of your annual Fund Salary in the 36 months prior to you leaving employment with Nestlé and/ or choosing another fund to receive your employer contributions. Additional Employer Account and/or Special Account (if you have one) 5

7 An example of a Retirement Benefit Kim is 56 and is retiring from Nestlé after 10 years as a Defined Benefit member of the Fund. Kim s Final Average Salary is $36,000. Kim s Core Benefit would be: 8 1 /3% x $36,000 x 10 years = $30,000 Kim s Retirement Account is $24,000. As the Core Benefit is the greater amount, Kim s Retirement Benefit is calculated using the Core Benefit amount. Kim also has a Savings Account of $14,250, a Surcharge Account of $500 and an Additional Employer Account of $800. Kim s Retirement Benefit is therefore: Core Benefit $30,000 Savings Account $14,250 Rollover Account Nil Late Retirement Benefit The Late Retirement Benefit applies to members who leave Nestlé or the Fund s Defined Benefit category from age 70. The Late Retirement Benefit is the sum of: 1. The benefit that would have been payable if you left Nestlé at age Any contributions paid on your behalf from that date, including personal contributions, rollovers, etc 3. Administration expenses 4. Any relevant taxes (including surcharge taxes) /- 5. Earnings at the Fund Earning Rate Surcharge Account ($500) Additional Employer Account $800 Special benefits and adjustments Total $44,550 If you have transferred from a previous fund or category or have been notified that special arrangements apply to you, these are not described in this document, but were explained at the time you transferred or were originally notified of your special arrangements. All of the benefits described in this section may be reduced to allow for the impact of surcharge tax and any payments to a former spouse under the Family Law Act, where applicable. Temporary residents If you are a temporary resident of Australia (excluding New Zealand citizens), additional restrictions on withdrawing your superannuation apply, as well as different tax rates on withdrawal of your benefits. If you hold a temporary visa, we recommend that you seek financial advice on termination of employment and/or departure from Australia. If you do not claim your benefit within six months of the later of your visa ceasing and departing Australia, the Trustee may be required to pay it to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO). If this happens, you will need to contact the ATO to access your benefit. 6

8 What happens if you take unpaid leave? If you take approved unpaid leave, such as parental leave, Nestlé will suspend contributions to your super until you return to work. You can continue to make your own personal contributions if you wish and the Fund Earning Rate will continue to be applied to your accounts while you are on leave. You will remain eligible for the standard Death and Disablement benefits. The insurer may impose restrictions on your cover and may discontinue the cover if you take extended leave. Accordingly, we recommend that you contact the Fund before taking leave to find out more information. Your period of unpaid leave is excluded from your membership period when the defined benefit components of your Death, Total and Permanent Disablement and Retirement benefits are calculated. Part-time members Some members may be employed on a part-time basis during part or all of their Fund membership. The defined benefit (or salary related) components of the Retirement, Death and Total and Permanent Disablement benefits are based on the equivalent full-time salary of the member. The Fund membership (both past and future) is adjusted to take into account any period of part-time employment. For example, if a member is employed part-time for 10 years and during that period the member s part-time salary is 75% of the member s full-time salary, the member s Fund membership for that period is multiplied by 75% as follows: 75% x 10 years employed on a part-time basis = 7.5 years Fund membership The adjustment to the Fund membership is made each time the standard hours for the part-time employee are changed, not just at 1 January each year. Contributions Contributions are made to your super in a number of ways: Company contributions required to provide the benefits described in this guide. Member contributions voluntary contributions (including lump sum contributions) you choose to make. Company contributions As a member of the Defined Benefit category, Nestlé contributes whatever is required to fund your benefits in the Fund (other than to the extent financed directly by you). Your Company contributions and defined benefit entitlements are calculated based on your Fund Salary. If your Ordinary Time Earnings (OTE) exceeds your Fund Salary, you will receive additional contributions into your Additional Employer Account. Nestlé also meets the cost of insurance (other than any additional insurance you choose to purchase) via its contributions to the Fund. Nestlé pays: 7.84% * of your Fund Salary into your Retirement Account; 3% minimum into your Additional Employer Account or Special Account (in some cases this may be paid to another fund); An amount to cover the cost of the insured component of your Death and Disablement benefits. The premium for any additional cover you choose to purchase will be deducted from your Savings Account; An amount to fund the Core (defined) Benefit if it exceeds your Retirement Account; and An amount to cover contributions on the excess (if any) of your OTE over Fund Salary. * Less 15% contributions tax = 6.67% Your annual Personal Illustration of Benefits indicates the period of full-time employment the Fund has recorded for you. If you work less than 15 hours per week you will be entitled to a TPD benefit in limited circumstances only. You will not be entitled to an Income Total Disablement benefit. 7

9 What is your Fund Salary? Your Fund Salary is your annual base pay, not including shift allowance, overtime, bonuses, penalty rates or commissions or the value of any benefit to which you are entitled. It is calculated when you join the Fund and updated at 1 January each year to include pay rises in the previous year. Your Fund Salary does not change during the year, even if your annual base pay changes. Every three years, an actuary reviews the financial position of the Fund and advises the Trustee on the level of Company contributions that is required to ensure the Fund is financially sound, so that it can provide the benefits to you as outlined in this guide. Leaving employment with Nestlé If you leave your employment with Nestlé and you choose to leave your super in the Fund you may be able to elect to have your new employer pay their super contributions into your account in Nestlé Super. Making your own voluntary contributions to your super You can choose to make regular voluntary contributions. These need to be a whole percentage of your Fund Salary e.g. 1%, 2%, or 3%. You can also nominate a fixed dollar amount. You can make contributions from: Your after-tax salary, known as non-concessional contributions, or You can ask your employer to make these for you from your before-tax salary (i.e. salary sacrifice), known as concessional contributions. How much you contribute, the way in which contributions are made and your income, will affect how much tax you pay and the type of tax you pay. Depending on your income level, you may also be eligible to receive the Government cocontributions if you make non-concessional contributions. As a Defined Benefit member, if your Notional Taxed Contributions plus contributions to your Additional Employer Account or Special Account are below the concessional contributions cap, you may make voluntary before-tax contributions up to your annual cap without incurring excess concessional contributions tax. Making contributions BPAY Using BPAY, you can make after-tax contributions 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Biller Code: Reference No: Your unique customer reference number, that will be sent to you when you join the Fund. Registered to BPAY Pty Ltd ABN Cheque Contributions can also be made by cheque. Remember to allow adequate time for these to be received by the Fund, particularly if you are sending contributions near the end of the financial year. Rollovers You can choose to transfer (roll over) money from other superannuation funds into Nestlé Super, making it easier to control your super and potentially saving on multiple administration fees. Any rollovers you bring into the Fund, together with investment returns, go into your Rollover Account. The Fund Hotline can help you track down any lost super you might have from previous funds, to enable you to roll over this money to Nestlé Super. Changing your contribution rate You can change your contribution rate and the way in which you contribute (i.e. by salary sacrifice or after tax) at any time during the year. To do this, you must complete a Contribution Rate Change Form well in advance of your nominated change date and send it to: or fax: If you want to make voluntary contributions and you re unsure which method is best for you (i.e. before-tax or after-tax), you should speak to a licensed financial adviser. 8

10 Contribution splitting Contribution splitting allows you to split eligible super contributions with your spouse. You have the option of splitting up to 85% of your concessional contributions (or up to the concessional contributions cap, if lower) with your spouse that is, contributions your employer makes including any salary sacrifice contributions you have chosen to make. However, any concessional contributions you split will count towards your concessional contributions cap, not your spouse s. You cannot split: contributions made to your Retirement Account as they are used to fund your defined benefit; non-concessional contributions; or rollovers or transfers (e.g. from overseas funds) into the Fund. After the financial year (1 July to the following 30 June) has ended, you can apply to the Trustee to split the contributions you have made during that financial year with your spouse. To enable the Fund to process your application, it must be received no later than 30 April of the following year. If you are leaving the Fund and wish to split your contributions, you must make this request at the same time as you request a benefit payment. You can split your super contributions only once for the financial year and you can nominate to split either a whole dollar amount or percentage of your contributions, provided the amount you nominate is within the legislative limits. If your spouse is not working or earns a low income, contribution splitting may be a useful way to help them save for retirement. Splitting may also be of assistance if one partner is much closer to retirement than the other. You can apply to split your super contributions by completing a Splitting your super contributions with your spouse Form. If you wish these contributions to be paid into an account in the Fund in your spouse s name and your spouse is not yet a member of the Fund, you and your spouse should also complete an Application for Spouse Contributions Form and return it as directed. Choice of Fund Under the Choice of Fund legislation, depending on your employment conditions, you may be able to choose a fund other than Nestlé Super to receive the future contributions Nestlé makes to your super. If this choice is available, you can also transfer all or part of your existing super benefit in the Fund to your chosen fund. Any remaining benefit will be held in the Retained Membership category of the Fund. As a Defined Benefit member, if you choose another fund for your future contributions, your Leaving Service Benefit (or Retirement Benefit, if applicable) will be calculated based on the date your final employer contribution is received by the Fund. This amount will then be transferred to your nominated fund (if you have requested this) or to the Retained Membership category and all insurance cover in the Fund will cease immediately. No insurance cover will be available to you if you choose another fund to receive your future contributions and you die or become disabled while a member of the Retained Membership category. If you later change your mind, you can have your future employer contributions redirected to the Defined Benefit category but only after 12 months from your choice of fund decision (i.e. from the date on which the last employer contribution was received by the Fund). You will become a new Defined Benefit member only on the date you first redirected employer contribution is received (even if you have remained a member of the Fund, in the Retained Membership category). In order to be entitled to the Death, TPD and Income Total Disablement benefits provided to other Defined Benefit members, you may need to provide satisfactory health evidence. If the insurer does not provide the full cover requested by the Trustee, your Death and Disablement benefits will be reduced accordingly. You will be advised if this applies to you. If you choose another superannuation fund prior to joining the Fund and then later decide to join the Fund, the same rules will apply. 9

11 Portability Transfer your existing account balance Even if you are not eligible under the Choice of Fund legislation to choose another fund for your future Company contributions, once in each 12 month period you may be able to transfer part of your super (excluding your Retirement Account and any other account used to calculate your defined benefit) to another fund while you are still employed by Nestlé. Conditions may apply. Leaving your Employer If you leave Nestlé, you will need to decide what you want to do with your super. You can choose to: take any non-preserved super you have as cash, less any applicable tax, roll over all or part of your super into another complying super fund, keep all or part of your super in the Retained Membership category of the Fund ($2,000 minimum balance applies), or purchase a pension from the Fund, provided you are eligible to do so. If you don t notify the Trustee within 90 days of leaving Nestlé of the way in which your benefit should be paid and your account balance is greater than $2,000, it will be automatically transferred to the Retained Membership category where your total benefit will be invested in the investment choice you had previously nominated for your eligible accounts, (i.e. your choice before the transfer) until you choose a different option. If your benefit is less than $2,000 and you do not provide payment instructions within 90 days of leaving Nestlé, your benefit will be transferred to the nominated Eligible Rollover Fund (ERF): Keeping your super in the Retained Membership category The key features of this category include: The Fund Earning Rate applied to your account depends on your chosen investment option. You can make rollovers and lump sum contributions at any time (including by BPAY). Members over age 65 can make contributions provided they meet superannuation law requirements of a minimum number of hours worked over a specified period. You must maintain an account balance of not less than $2,000. No insurance is available. You may be able to request your new employer to pay your future employer contributions into your account. When your insurance ceases When you leave Nestlé Australia Limited: your Death and Total and Permanent Disablement cover continues for up to 60 days (up until you reach age 65), or until cover commences under an individual policy issued under a continuation option, if earlier; and your Income Total Disablement cover continues for up to 60 days (up until you reach age 65), provided you continue in permanent employment. The amount of cover provided is that which applied immediately prior to the date you ceased to be employed by Nestlé Australia Limited. Remember that if you elect to have future employer contributions paid to another fund (under the Choice of Fund legislation) all insured benefits will cease immediately, on the date we receive your last company contribution. Colonial SuperTrace Locked Bag 5429 Parramatta NSW 2124 Telephone: A benefit transferred to the ERF continues to be subject to the preservation and other rules governing super. Once your benefit is paid to the ERF it cannot be transferred back to the Fund unless you are re-employed by Nestlé. You should check the investment strategy of the ERF to ensure that it is suited to your personal circumstances. 10

12 Insurance continuation options When you leave Nestlé Australia Limited you may be eligible to purchase an individual Death, TPD and/or income protection policy (similar to the Income Total Disablement benefit) from the Fund s insurer without providing evidence of health. The maximum amount of cover available to you is the final amount of cover for which you were insured in the Fund. To be eligible for a new individual policy from the Fund s insurer, you: a) must be an Australian resident under the age of 60 to continue death cover, or under 55 to continue TPD cover and income protection cover; b) must not be joining the armed forces of any country; c) must not be claiming, entitled to claim, or intend to claim an insured benefit from the Fund; d) must not be ceasing employment due to ill-health; and e) for the purposes of continuing TPD and income protection cover, must be intending to commence permanent employment in an occupation that is not an excluded occupation under the underwriting criteria that the Fund s insurer currently applies to other similar individual policies. You must complete an application for a personal retail policy and send it to the Fund s insurer together with the applicable premium, within 75 days of your cessation of employment with Nestlé Australia Limited. The premiums will be based on the insurer s current retail premium rates and will be different to those which you paid (if any) while a member of the Fund. Benefit payment processing Benefit payments are processed as quickly as possible after all required information has been received by the Fund. Processing times will vary, depending on when we receive all the required documentation and final contributions. If you have ceased employment with Nestlé or have lodged a combined choice of fund and portability request, the Fund will require your employer to confirm that the final contributions have been paid to the Fund on your behalf and, if applicable, your date of termination of employment. You have the opportunity to request a partial payment of your benefit (subject to any minimum account balance restrictions), pending receipt of all of the necessary documentation and contributions or you may be happy to wait until the benefit can be paid in full. Once the Fund has received all the required documentation, as advised on the Benefit Payment Options Form, we will be able to process your benefit payment. Processing times will vary on a case by case basis, but benefits are generally paid within 3 business days after we have determined that all requirements have been met. Pending payment of your benefit (or transfer to the Retained Membership category) your defined benefit calculated as at your date of termination of employment, will be invested in the Growth option and the balance of your benefit, will continue to be invested in your chosen investment option (or Growth option if you have not made an investment choice). How to claim your benefit Call the Fund Hotline or visit the Fund website at for the appropriate forms. Provided you satisfy the eligibility criteria and you have completed the application form and paid the premium, the Fund s insurer will issue a personal retail policy without the need to complete a personal statement. However, any special terms and conditions, loadings, and exclusions applying to your insurance cover in Nestlé Super will continue to apply to the new personal retail policy issued by the Fund s insurer. 11

13 Providing proof of identity The security of your super entitlements in Nestlé Super is a key priority for the Trustee. Nestlé Super has procedures in place to manage risks associated with fraud and other illegal activities. At times, these procedures may cause inconvenience to you. Please remember that they are being applied to protect your entitlements. In addition, under the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006, superannuation funds are required to have an anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing program in place. A key element of this program is customer identification and verification procedures. Typically, you will be required to provide proof of your identity before you withdraw benefits from Nestlé Super or commence an income stream. As a result, some requested transactions cannot proceed until we receive and verify the necessary identification documents. The Trustee does not accept liability for any loss you may incur as a result of circumstances such as a delay in payment of a benefit or commencement of an income stream where the delay arises from our need to comply with legislative requirements. We may be required to request additional customer identification or related information from you at other times. If we cannot obtain the requisite information from you, we may be unable to process your requested transaction. The Trustee must also report specified matters to the regulator, AUSTRAC, and this may include the provision of personal information about you. If this happens, the Trustee is not permitted to advise you that such a report has been made. Taking out a pension When you retire, you can use your benefit to purchase an Account Based Pension or a Lifetime Pension. However, you do not need to have permanently retired from the workforce to access some or all of your super. You may be able to move into retirement gradually, while still continuing to contribute to your super. The Fund offers a Transition to Retirement Pension. As a Defined Benefit member, you can open a Transition to Retirement Pension using the balance of your Retirement Account and/or your accumulation accounts while you are still employed by Nestlé. You must have reached your preservation age (see page 3). A Transition to Retirement Pension pays you a regular income (provided there are sufficient funds in your account) but does not allow your balance to be cashed as a lump sum before you satisfy a condition of release for preserved benefits. Family Law A Family Law settlement can be made by an agreement or court order. Before a court order is made, you should contact Nestlé Super to check that the instructions in the proposed court order can be carried out. It is possible that we may also need to be asked to comment on a draft agreement. A fee applies for Family Law processing. Please refer to Section 6 for more information. 12

16 5 How we invest your money The following information is incorporated into section five of the PDS: Nestlé Super offers members four investment options to choose from. You can only invest in one investment option for your eligible accounts at a time. If you don t make an investment choice, your eligible accounts will be invested in to the default investment option which is the Nestlé Growth option. The Trustee has appointed Russell Investment Management Ltd (Russell) as the investment manager for Nestlé Super. The majority of the underlying assets of each of the options are invested in Russell unit trusts. Russell appoints and manages the investment managers who manage the assets of the Russell unit trusts. Russell does not take into account labour standards or environmental, social or ethical considerations in its decision to engage underlying investment managers to manage the investments of Russell funds. (Russell has consented to the inclusion of this statement.) The Trustee does not take into account labour standards or environmental, social or ethical considerations when it decides how the assets of the Fund are to be invested. Choosing your investments The Fund offers you four investment options: wish to obtain advice from a licensed financial adviser before making any decisions. Your eligible accounts Member Investment Choice applies to the total amount of any super you have in the following accounts in the Fund, i.e. your eligible accounts. Savings Account Member Contribution Account Rollover Account Special Account Additional Employer Account or similar Company Contribution Account Surcharge Account for surcharge not related to your Retirement Account or Core Benefit Member Investment Choice does not apply to your Retirement Account or that part of your Surcharge Account (if you have one) that relates to your Retirement Account or your Core Benefit. Your Retirement Account is invested in the Nestlé Growth option. You cannot choose a different investment option for your Retirement Account. the Nestlé Cash option the Nestlé Conservative option the Nestlé Growth option and the Nestlé High Growth option. Each option has its own investment strategy and objectives, and carries a different level of risk and expected investment return. You will be notified of any change in the available investment options. You can choose one of these options. The option you choose will apply to any existing balance in your eligible accounts and to all future eligible contributions, until you change your investment choice. Your investment choice is personal to you and it s important that you take the time to understand the choices you have, to assist you to make a decision that is right for you. You may 15

17 Surcharge Account Surcharge tax was abolished by the Government from 1 July If the Fund has paid surcharge tax on your behalf, any surcharge amounts will be recorded in your Surcharge Account. If you have a Surcharge Account, any amounts that relate to your Retirement Account or your Core Benefit will be increased or decreased by the Fund Earning Rate for the Nestlé Growth option. The remainder of your Surcharge Account is increased (or decreased) by the Fund Earning Rate (which can be positive or negative) of the investment option you have chosen for your eligible accounts in the Fund. The balance of your Surcharge Account is deducted from your final benefit before it is paid. How to make a choice When you are ready to make your investment choice you can either complete the Member Investment Choice form or make your choice online at You have the opportunity to change your investment option four times a year - effective 1 January, 1 April, 1 July and 1 October (switching dates). Please note that your instructions must be received by the Fund administrator at least five business days prior to your nominated switching date. Each year the Trustee will send you a Personal Illustration of Benefits to tell you how much is recorded in each of your accounts in the Fund as at the end of the year, including how much is recorded in your Surcharge Account. Why doesn t Member Investment Choice apply to your Retirement Account? Nestlé contributes at a rate that the actuary considers necessary to fund defined benefits (other than to the extent they are financed by member contributions). Your Core Benefit is calculated using a formula based on your Final Average Fund Salary and your years of Fund membership. This means that your defined benefit will be impacted by investment returns only if the balance in your Retirement Account is greater than your Core Benefit. Because Nestlé is responsible for financing this part of your benefit, the Trustee determines how your Retirement Account is invested and has currently chosen to invest in the Nestlé Growth option. However, this is subject to change at the Trustee s discretion. 16

20 How the Earning Rate for each option is determined The Earning Rate for each investment option is based on the net investment returns achieved on the assets underlying that investment option, with adjustments for applicable fees and taxes. The Earning Rate allocated to your accounts may be positive or negative depending on the performance of investment markets and the earnings and losses of your chosen option. Annual Earning Rate To determine the final Earning Rate for each investment option, gross investment returns are adjusted to allow for any investment taxes and investment and management fees and the costs of running the Fund, excluding those costs covered by fees collected from members during the year. The relevant monthly Earning Rate for each of the Fund s options is applied to the balance of each of your accounts at the beginning of the year and to the following amounts, from the date they are received by or paid from your accounts (as the case may be): Interim Earning Rate If you leave the Fund during the year, or transfer to the Retained Membership category and at the same time make a cash withdrawal, earnings or losses will be allocated: at the Interim Earning Rate for each month since the previous 1 January, based on the net investment return earned by the Fund s options, and at a rate based on the Fund s bank account rate (bank rate) from the end of the last month for which the Fund s actual investment returns are known to the payment date. The actual investment return earned by each option for any month is generally not confirmed until about three weeks following the end of the month. This means that, where a benefit is paid during the first three weeks of any month, there is a chance that you will be paid the bank rate for a period of up to seven weeks. This may be higher or lower than the actual investment returns for your chosen option for that period. Lump sum deposits paid into the Fund during the year. Rollovers or transfers received during the year. All contributions paid by you or on your behalf, including employer contributions, spouse contributions and Government co-contributions. Lump sum withdrawals paid out of the Fund or transferred from your accounts during the year. Surcharge assessments paid out of the Fund or refunded by the Australian Taxation Office during the year. 19
