Accessing you final entitlements and superannuation
Please consider the impact the effective date of your resignation or retirement will have on your ability to access your final entitlements.
If a Thursday payday is nominated as your last day of service this will enable your outstanding leave entitlements to be paid with this pay. If a resignation or retirement is shortly after payday leave and final salary payments may take up to 5 working days. Please be aware these time frames are subject to paperwork being received in HR in a timely manner.
Nominating a Thursday payday will also speed up access to superannuation withdrawals. If the last day of service is nominated as a Friday following a payday it will delay your access to withdraw superannuation funds for a period of between 2-4 weeks.
