Cost of Living Increase 2014
Letters advising the April 2014 increase were distributed to all eligible members mid-March.  The increase takes effect in the payment dated 24 April 2014.

2014 Certificate of Identity And Survival
Identity and Survival certificates were sent to members residing outside of New Zealand with the Cost of Living Increase 2014 letters posted mid-March.

Members are requested to check their details on the certificate, sign the certificate then post the original of the signed certificate to GSF by 25 April 2014. It is important that the signed certificate is returned to GSF by this date to avoid interruption to payment of entitlements.

If you live outside of New Zealand and have not received your 2014 Certificate of Identity and Survival certificate, please contact the Datacom GSF Schemes Administration team (see contact details below).

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.
Earnings Certificates 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 Bank Account.

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 $5.00 for each four weekly payment processed is charged when the annuity is paid into an Australian bank account and $15.00 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.

 

Datacom GSF 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.
