1              Name of Declaration

                This Declaration is the Superannuation (PSS) Membership Exclusion Declaration 1995.

3              Interpretation

         (1)   In this Declaration, unless the contrary intention appears:

1922 Act means the Superannuation Act 1922.

1976 Act means the Superannuation Act 1976.

1990 Act means the Superannuation Act 1990.

ACT Government Service means the Service established by subsection 12 (1) of the Public Sector Management Act 1994 of the Australian Capital Territory.

alternative superannuation scheme, in relation to a person who is employed in a particular capacity, or who is the holder of a particular office:

                (a)    means a superannuation scheme to which contributions are made in relation to the person’s employment or holding of the office; but

               (b)    does not include any of the following:

                          (i)    a scheme to which contributions are made in relation to the person for:

                                   (A)     if the person is employed in a particular capacity — other employment or the holding of an office; or

                                   (B)     if the person is the holder of a particular office — other employment or the holding of another office;

                         (ii)    a scheme to the extent that membership of that scheme by the person is for the preservation, or payment, of productivity benefits;

                        (iii)    a scheme to the extent that participation in that scheme
on the person’s behalf is for purposes solely related to
satisfying obligations under the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992;

                        (iv)    a scheme to which contributions are made in relation to the person only in relation to performance pay;

                         (v)    for a prescribed person — a scheme of which the person is taken, under subsection (2), to be a member for top‑up purposes.

Example

If a person is a member, and is making voluntary contributions to an RSA without any employer contributions, the RSA will not be an alternative superannuation scheme. However, if the person’s employer makes contributions to the RSA, above the superannuation guarantee rate, the RSA will be an alternative superannuation scheme.

designated position means a position designated by the Governor of the State of New South Wales, either generally or in relation to a particular person, under subsection 43B (2) of the Meat Industry Act 1978 of that State.

eligible employee has the meaning given by the 1976 Act.

member, of a superannuation scheme that is an RSA, means a holder of the RSA.

PSS member means a person who is a member of the Public Sector Superannuation Scheme.

performance pay means a payment of that name made under:

               (b)    an agreement under Part VIB of that Act in force before 15 November 1996.

prescribed person means a person who holds office or is employed under terms and conditions that enable the person to choose whether to take part of his or her remuneration in a non‑monetary form (for example, a top‑up arrangement).

private superannuation scheme means a scheme, fund or arrangement, however established, under which superannuation or retirement benefits are payable, but does not include a scheme established by or under an Act of a State, a Territory or the Commonwealth.

productivity benefits means benefits that are productivity related benefits within the meaning of section 110A of the 1976 Act.

Public Service Act means the Public Service Act 1922.

superannuation scheme:

                (a)    means a scheme, fund or arrangement, however established, under which superannuation or retirement benefits are payable; and

               (b)    includes an RSA within the meaning of the Retirement Savings Account Act 1997.

top‑up arrangement means an arrangement in relation to the employment of, or the holding of an office by, a person (the payee):

                (a)    under which:

                          (i)    another person (the payer) contributes, on behalf of the payee, to a superannuation scheme (which may be a scheme that applies only to the payee) under which superannuation or retirement benefits are payable to, or in relation to, the payee; and

                         (ii)    the contributions are part of, and not additional to, the payee’s overall remuneration package provided by the payer; and

               (b)    that is entered into on the basis that:

                          (i)    the payee continues to be, or becomes, a member of the Public Sector Superannuation Scheme; and

                         (ii)    the payer continues to be, or becomes, the designated employer of the payee;

                        in relation to that employment or holding of office.

Note   Unless the contrary intention appears, terms defined in the Superannuation Act 1990 have the same meaning in this Declaration. For example, section 3 of that Act contains the following definition:

Public Sector Superannuation Scheme means the superannuation scheme established by the Trust Deed.

         (2)   For the purposes of this Declaration, a person is taken to be a member of a superannuation scheme for top‑up purposes if the person is a member of the scheme only because of:

                (a)    a top‑up arrangement; or

               (b)    a top‑up arrangement and any of the following circumstances:

                          (i)    contributions relating to performance pay are made to the scheme;

                         (ii)    the person is a member of the scheme for the purpose of the preservation, or payment, of productivity benefits;

                        (iii)    participation in the scheme on the person’s behalf by the person’s employer is for purposes solely related to satisfying the employer’s obligations under the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992.
