the Government Superannuation Fund (GSF)
Schemes. The GSF Schemes have been
closed to new members since 30 June

It is important Datacom
is notified as soon as possible when a member passes away. This
is to ensure future annuity payments are ceased promptly and no
resulting overpayment occurs which would be repayable to GSF.
It also enables Datacom to confirm any spouse entitlements that
may be due.
Pensions Tax Free
As from 1 April 1990 all
Government Superannuation Fund pensions became free of tax,
therefore members no longer need to declare their allowance to
the Department of Inland Revenue.
may be supplied on request as proof of income for Community
Services Card, Disability Allowance etc. Please contact Datacom
GSF Schemes Administration if you require an Earnings
Certificate or Cost of Living Advice Notice.
Payment to Overseas
Certain countries have
been approved by the GSF Authority for the payment of annuities
to members located overseas. If you elect to become a permanent
resident overseas, it may be possible for you to have your
allowance paid into an overseas bank account. Please contact
Datacom GSF Schemes Administration if you require more
information. Please note - a fee of $2.00 for each four weekly
payment processed is charged when the annuity is paid into an
Australian bank account and $9.00 when paid into a bank account
in other countries. Also, additional personal information, such
as your date of birth and address may need to be provided to the
paying bank as part of their anti-money laundering processes.
Schemes Administration should be notified of any change to your
address as a certificate requiring confirmation of the member's
whereabouts is sent annually to all members in receipt of an
annuity who are resident overseas. Failure to return the
certificate will result in suspension of the allowance.
Letters advising future
entitlements will be
distributed to all
contributing members in
