Eligibility for Full Payment

Members are eligible for full benefit payout after they reach 55 years of age or have provided at least 25 years of service. These are the eligibility rules as per the Superannuation Act. For a member to apply for full payout they must have already formally ceased employment.

Retirement on Medical Grounds

If a member is deemed unfit for duty due to a medical condition, the member can retire on medical grounds. Members who retire on medical grounds are eligible for a full payout even if they have not yet reached 55 years of age or have not provided at least 25 years of service. Members intending to retire on medical grounds are urged to contact Nambawan Super first before applying.

Left Employment and Still Not Eligible?

If a member has left employment but has not met the eligibility requirements (55 years of age or worked at least 25 years) for a full exit they will have to wait for 12 months from the time they exited employment before they can formally apply for their benefits.

Unemployment Benefits

If a member has not found employment after three months of leaving their job, they can apply for unemployment benefits (UB). UB payment is the equivalent of 50% of a member’s monthly wage at the time when they left employment.

Members will have to apply each month for UB payments until after the 12 months when they become eligible to receive the remaining funds, provided that they are still unemployed.
