Freddy Lemeki is a happy Nambawan Super member.

Seven years ago, he began maximising the returns on his superannuation balance by increasing the amount he was saving through Nambawan Super’s Voluntary Contributions feature.

Originally from the Milne Bay Province, Freddy was first employed in 1988 by the Rabaul Town Authority, but due to a number of issues, no super deductions were made until 2001.

“It was very unfortunate but looking back I now see it as a blessing in disguise. Once I started contributing I saw steady growth in my account. I really wanted to catch up on the years that I lost so I opted to increase my contributions through Voluntary Contribution.”

“I’m very, very happy because I’m truly on my way to having a healthy financial situation after exiting employment, and secondly I wanted to seize the opportunity to earn more on the returns that members receive.”

Because of the positive impact, he saw on his savings with Nambawan Super, Freddy stopped saving with other institutions and diverted all his deductions to his superannuation.

He now encourages other staff to maximise their contributions through Voluntary Contributions, and the ones who have joined have also started to see increased returns on their investment.
