Pension Investment Returns

The investment returns relating to your investment choice are applied to your Member Account as crediting rates after providing for direct and indirect costs, as well as taxes.

Keep in mind, the actual rate of return on your account may be different to the published weekly, annual or long term returns due to rounding and the timing and value of transactions allocated to your account.
