Benefit payments over the holidays

The last payment date for benefits for 2023 will be Friday 15 December. You need to factor that in if you’re planning to withdraw money towards a deposit for a first home or for any other reason. For a pre-Christmas payment, Mercer needs to receive the completed form from you (or HR/Payroll in the case of leaving service payments) by Friday 8 December. Investment changes requested and regular payments for retained members will be processed as usual. The helpline will also operate as usual over the holiday period.
