Two members who start work today, both have the same starting salary of K25,000 per year.

Member A decides to make a voluntary contribution of 4% on top on their normal 6% employee contribution.

Member B decides to only contribute the mandatory 6% employee contribution.

Let’s see how their super is doing after 10, 20 and 30 years!


Note: Model Assumption: These are forwarded projections using 7% annual interest rate and a CPI of 1% has been applied to members’ salary for each year. Actual results will vary on final annual returns


After just 10 years, Member A is K13,000 ahead, by 20 years they are more than K50,000 better off, and at retirement Member A has more than K100,000 extra for an even better retirement.

 Don’t get left behind – start doing Voluntary Contribution today.
