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.
