How It Works
Employers can institute two superannuation schemes - Defined Benefit or Defined Contribution. If the employer has chosen to setup a Defined Benefit superannuation scheme, the benefits which will be payable to the employee at the time of retirement are clearly defined and funds accumulated as part of this plan are utilized towards claim payments when employees leave the organization.
Under the Defined Contribution (DC) superannuation scheme, a pre-decided amount or percentage will be deducted from the employee’s salary and invested in the employee’s superannuation fund. The funds accumulated under this plan will be utilized for purchase of an Annuity plan which can later on be a source of regular cash inflow for the employee.
