Interest is applied to your account balances on a daily basis throughout the year. The actual interest rates applied to your account balances may vary from those shown above.

The annual rate, which is declared as at 31 December each year, is determined by us taking into account (amongst other things) the investment earnings and expenses of the relevant investment option(s) you have chosen and the expenses incurred by UniSaver generally. 

If you leave UniSaver, we will calculate your benefit using an interim interest rate to cover the period between the end of the previous scheme year and the date your benefit is payable. Interim interest rates are an estimate of the investment return for the appropriate investment option less estimated tax and expenses.
