Other ways to help your employees

Encourage employees to plan for retirement

Provide your staff with a superannuation plan that will optimise their:

  • Payout on retirement
  • Investment opportunities both en route to retirement and after retirement.

Choosing the right fund(s) and helping with individual member choice  

With the implementation of Choice of Fund legislation, we can help educate staff about their choices1 and ensure they are comfortable with the options available through the BT Lifetime Super – Employer Plan.

Contingency planning

For long term employees approaching long service or retirement, use our tax-effective funding vehicle and the opportunity to consult with our Financial Planners2 on ways to maximise their payout and invest it wisely.

Access to personalised, professional advice

You can extend employee incentives to include value-added facilities such as personal consultations for relevant times in your employees' working life. These include salary sacrifice strategies, investing an inheritance, redundancy and retirement.

Super can provide flexible insurance options

Super isn't just for retirement. Using the BT Lifetime Super – Employer Plan your employees can plan for protection against contingencies or situations that may occur before retirement which could potentially create financial hardship for them.

The key protection areas are death, total and permanent disability, and salary continuance insurance.

Arrange an appointment to discuss the choices available with one of our financial planners.
