Information for non-participating employers

A non-participating employer is an employer that hasn't signed an agreement with UniSuper to participate in the fund. A non-participating employer can still make contributions for existing UniSuper Accumulation 1 members, but can't sign up new members.

Making contributions

Through SuperStream, employers can make all their contributions in a single transaction, even if they're going to multiple super funds. So any choice of fund contributions, including those you direct to UniSuper, can be made in the same efficient process as your default contributions.

Employers can choose from a few options to process contributions. Your payroll system provider or default fund may offer a SuperStream-compliant method for submitting contributions, or you can engage a clearing house to submit compliant contributions on your behalf. Find out more.
