Salary & Salary Packaging

Salary is paid fortnightly (every second Thursday). Payment is made to a bank, building society or credit union account nominated by the employee. The University’s flexible payroll systems allow premiums, medical and hospital fund contributions, and credit union deposits or repayments.

The University recognises the value to employees of flexible remuneration planning. Salary packaging is one way to provide this flexibility. The principle aim of salary sacrificing is to legitimately restructure the way you receive your salary to suit your individual needs and potentially maximise your take home pay. This is achieved by allowing you to receive part of your salary in the form of benefi ts rather than receiving it all as salary.

Salary Sacrificing options can be arranged for the following;

  • Child Care
  • Electronic Diary or Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)
  • Laptop or Notebook Computers and iPads
  • Lifestyle Clinic (UNSW Medicine)
  • Motor Vehicle leasing
  • Parking
  • Superannuation
  • Membership of the The University of New South Wales
  • Fitness and Aquatic Centre
  •  Association of Tertiary Education Management
 

   

Superannuation

The University offers a generous superannuation scheme with up to 17% employer contributions available to staff on contracts of 2 years or more. For contracts of less than 2 years the super guarantee rate is paid. The University of New South Wales employees may have the option of salary packaging additional superannuation contributions. Senior employees engaged on a total remuneration package also have the option to package salary and superannuation as they choose.
