How Do I

How do I add a new employee who is already an existing member of Rest?


If you have employees with existing Rest accounts, they’ll need to supply us with specific information, and we’ll link them to your business.  Follow these easy steps:
 
  1. have your employee complete the Standard Choice Form and give it back to you.
  2. enter the details they’ve supplied in EmployerAccess or in your next contribution payment including the employee’s:
  • employee’s Rest member number
  • employee’s full name
  • date of birth
  • gender
  • residential address
  • email
  • mobile number
  • date they began employment with you
  • employee’s TFN if they’ve supplied it for employment purposes
  • salary (for insurance calculations for Rest Corporate members)
  • Occupational category (for insurance calculations for Rest Corporate members)
Once you’ve added your new employee online, we will send them a welcome pack and login details to complete the application process.

How do I add a new employee who is not currently a member of Rest?


Add the employee’s details into EmployerAccess or in your next contribution payment including the employee’s:
  • employee’s full name
  • date of birth
  • gender
  • residential address
  • email
  • mobile number
  • date they began employment with you
  • employee’s TFN if they’ve supplied it for employment purposes
  • salary (for insurance calculations for Rest Corporate members)
  • occupational category (for insurance calculations for Rest Corporate members)
Once you’ve added your new employee online, we will send them a welcome pack and login details to complete the application process.

What do I do if an employee goes on unpaid leave?


You’re not required to pay super for employees on unpaid leave, but you must advise us before their leave commences in order for Rest to maintain their insurance (if any) and to adjust their accounts for insurance and administration charges. You can advise us of an employee going on unpaid leave in EmployerAccess.

What should I do if an employee dies?


If an employee passes away, please call 1300 305 775 9am to 5pm weekdays to report the death and to find out how the employee’s beneficiaries can claim their benefit.

What is a default fund?


An employer default fund is the super fund that you pay an employee's SG contributions if they don’t nominate their own fund. The default super fund that you choose must be a complying fund, which is one that satisfies the requirements under superannuation law and be registered by the Australian Prudential Regulation Authority (APRA) to offer a MySuper product.
