This PDS applies to employer-sponsored and personal members with an interest in the Statewide product (under division 1 and 2 respectively within the Statewide Superannuation Trust). What type of member will you be? If you re joining Statewide through your employer, you ll be what s known as an employer-sponsored member. If you re not joining through your employer (e.g. you re self-employed) you ll be what s known as a personal member. Some of the information in this PDS that applies to employersponsored members is different to the information that applies to personal members. Where this is the case, the PDS will clearly state the member type that applies. MySuper in Statewide Statewide is authorised to offer a MySuper product, which helps us make super easy for you! As a result of the government s Stronger Super reforms, some or all of your super in Statewide (including certain contributions and rollovers) may be treated as a MySuper interest. We re required by law to apply specific terms and conditions to a MySuper interest, including investing it in our MySuper investment option (see page 5). Governance disclosure Superannuation legislation requires our MySuper product dashboard, trustee and executive remuneration and other fund documents to be disclosed on our website. This information is available at governance. i You should read about MySuper and who it covers and how it works under Statewide before making a decision. Information on Statewide s MySuper product is found throughout this booklet. The material relating to MySuper may change between the time when you read this statement and the day when you acquire this product. 2 HOW SUPER WORKS Superannuation (super) is a way to save for your retirement. It s generally compulsory for some of your income to be paid into a super account when you start work, so you start saving for your retirement early. Compulsory contributions paid by your employer are added to your account at least quarterly and investment earnings (which may be negative) are added to your account daily. And because your investment earnings stay in your account, you ll continue to receive returns on these earnings in later years. The Australian Government provides a range of incentives for people to save for their retirement through super. As a result, super is taxed differently from other investments and there can be significant tax advantages and other government benefits available. Because super is a long-term investment, you usually can t access it until you re aged between 55 and 60 and have met a condition of release, such as retirement. However, there are some special circumstances where you can withdraw it earlier. To find out more about super in general, visit the Statewide website at For further information, see the How super works section of ASIC s MoneySmart website, Contributions There are several different types of contributions that can be made into your super account. Employer contributions (concessional) Generally, if you re over 18 years of age and earn over $450 per month, your employer is required by law to make regular payments into your super. These payments are known as the superannuation guarantee (SG) and provide the basic building blocks for your super. Page 2 Statewide product disclosure statement

3 3 Personal contributions You can help your super grow by making personal contributions, in addition to your employer SG contributions. There are two ways to make personal contributions: After-tax contributions (non-concessional) these are contributions you make from your take-home pay, after you ve paid tax. You can contribute regularly or make oneoff contributions. Salary sacrifice contributions (concessional) these are contributions that you can ask your employer to pay into Statewide from your before-tax pay. This may reduce the income tax that you pay because your taxable income will be reduced and you ll generally only be taxed at the concessional rate of 15% on your contributions. Please note that limits apply to the amount of contributions you can pay into super. See the How super works booklet in the Product disclosure statements page at for details about contribution limits. Government co-contributions If you make after-tax contributions to your super you may qualify for the co-contribution scheme and receive free money from the government. The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) will determine your eligibility and calculate your payment, and forward it to us as a contribution into your super account. You can visit the ATO website for more information, Calculators Statewide s contributions calculator may help you work out the contribution type that s best for you and our retirement calculator may show you how much super you might need in retirement. To use the calculators, go to Choice of fund Most people can choose which super fund they d like their super contributions paid into but if you don t have a choice or don t tell your employer where to pay your super, your employer will use a super fund that they ve chosen. This could also mean that your super is treated as a MySuper interest (see page 2). i You should read the important information about how super works, contributions and when you can withdraw your benefit, before making a decision. Go to the How super works booklet on the Product disclosure statement page on The material relating to how super works may change between the time when you read this statement and the day when you acquire this product.

Statewide invests across a range of asset classes that have different levels of risk, and we offer a variety of investment options. Each option s level of risk depends on the nature of its underlying investments and how it s structured to achieve its objective. In general, the greater the expected returns, the greater the level of risk, and the greater the likelihood that returns will fluctuate from year to year they may go up or they may go down they may even be negative. Significant risks to the fund include investment risk, inflation, interest rates, exchange rates, liquidity, derivatives, market failure and operational risks, including changes to group insurance policy terms. To ensure you choose the investment strategy that s right for you, you ll need to consider: what level of return you want to achieve what level of risk you re comfortable with. The appropriate level of risk for you will depend on your age, investment time frame, where other parts of your wealth are invested and how comfortable you are with the possibility of negative returns on your super from time to time. When considering your investment in super, it s important to understand that: the value of investment options will go up and down returns are not guaranteed you may lose some of your money the level of returns will vary past performance is not an indication of future performance the money you save in super, including your contributions and returns, may not be enough to provide adequately for your retirement laws affecting your super may change. Use the risk profile calculator available on our website to help you work out what type of investor you are. We strongly recommend you also seek professional financial advice to help you understand investment risk and work out which investment option(s) will best suit your own financial needs and goals. i You should read the important information about the risks of investing in super before making a decision. Go to the Risks of super booklet on the Product disclosure statement page on The material relating to the risks of investing in super may change between the time when you read this statement and the day when you acquire this product. 5 HOW WE INVEST YOUR MONEY Whatever stage of life you re at, Statewide offers a range of investment options to help you reach your retirement goals.

If there s anything that you don t understand or would like more information about, please contact our client services team on Your super and responsible investment considerations Statewide is a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment ( and has an Environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment and proxy voting policy. This policy sets out the way in which we aim to incorporate responsible investment considerations, including environmental, social and governance factors, into our investment analysis and decision making. Through this policy Statewide seeks to optimally protect and manage investments over time by addressing material risks. From time to time the trustee appoints professional investment managers. Currently many of these investment managers consider ESG factors to varying degrees across our options. The Statewide Sustainable Diversified investment option is currently the only option to explicitly use ESG factors to guide investment selection. i You should read the important information about all of our investment options, switching investment options and our ESG Investment Policy before making a decision.

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 fund 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 where applicable. Ask the fund or your financial adviser. To find out more If you d 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.

Death * and total and permanent disablement (TPD) insurance provides you with a lump sum benefit if an illness or injury prevents you from ever working again, or to your estate and/or dependants (e.g. spouse) in the event of your death. There are two types of cover available, standard and fixed. Death * only insurance provides a lump sum benefit, which is paid to your estate and/or dependants (e.g. spouse) in the event of your death, once we are notified. There are two types of cover available, standard and fixed. * Includes terminal illness.

Warning: The information about insurance in the Insurance in your super booklet about eligibility for certain cover and conditions and exclusions on cover that might apply may affect your entitlement to insurance cover. You should read that information before deciding whether the insurance is appropriate. There are costs associated with insurance cover Statewide insurance (other than fixed cover) is offered as units of cover. Each unit has a certain value which can depend on your age, occupation scale and type of cover. The cost, or premium, per week, depends on the number of units you have and the type of cover, as you can see from the table below: Type of cover Weekly cost per unit Income protection insurance $0.51 Standard death and TPD insurance $1.55 Standard death only insurance $0.75 The cost of fixed cover for death and TPD and death only insurance depends on your age and the cost increases with each birthday you have.

If you re a new employer-sponsored member aged 15 or over, you re automatically provided with four units of income protection insurance and four units of standard death and TPD insurance when you join Statewide. (Different arrangements apply for personal members. See the Personal members section below for more information.) Warning: The cost for this automatic basic cover will be deducted directly from your account unless you choose to cancel it. Your four units of income protection insurance provide $2,000 of cover per month, at a cost of $2.04 per week (51 cents per unit). The weekly cost of your four units of standard death and TPD insurance is $6.20 ($1.55 per unit). The value of your death and TPD insurance cover depends on your age and will decrease each year from age 30.

With most investments, the higher the potential returns the higher the level of risk. It is not feasible to list all the possible risks in this FSG, however you should read the relevant Statewide product disclosure statement (PDS) for further information about investment risk and insurance conditions. Product disclosure statements When advice is given, we will also give you, where appropriate, a PDS issued by the trustee containing information you would reasonably require for the purpose of making a decision about whether to acquire the financial product. The PDS will disclose details of any fees and charges payable for that product. The PDS is available at Liability insurance SFMS is covered by professional indemnity insurance satisfying the requirements under the Corporations Act for compensation arrangements. This insurance provides cover for losses from claims arising out of the provision of professional services to third parties.
