Grow your super thanks to a little incentive called a government co-contribution

If you contribute some after tax money to your super, you may be able to receive a boost from the government. It’s their way of rewarding you for making an effort to grow your super.

Contributing to super? Make sure you submit your payment via BPAY or Direct Debit using the Rest App by 3pm, 23rd June 2020. The payment needs to reach Rest's bank account by 30th June 2020 and you will also need to consider your banks processing time-frame. You can find your BPAY details in Member Online or on your last statement. Alternatively use Direct Debit or BPAY available in the Rest App
