What contributions are paid into the Lifestyle Plan?

As a member of the Lifestyle Plan you can pay minimum contributions of 1% of your monthly pay - you can pay more if you wish to. The company will contribute 1% for any member who pays at least 1%.

The company is complying with minimum contribution requirements which are being phased in. Company contributions for casual workers will therefore rise between the following periods:
