The Union wishes to again inform members of the Fire Service’s intention to pay the PCA annual allowance.

The Union has, as you will be aware in the past, encouraged Scheme members to deposit this allowance into the Fire Service Superannuation Scheme as a voluntary contribution. The Union actively encourages members to deposit their net PCA allowance into the Scheme as a voluntary contribution.

The New Zealand Fire Service Superannuation Scheme Supernews No. 71 will have been sent to all Scheme members. Enclosed with that Supernews is the necessary authority forms and reply paid envelope, etc.

This notice is to highlight to members the need to ensure that forms approving the payment to be placed in their Superannuation Scheme, need to be in the hands of the Super Scheme Secretary by Friday 5 March. Details for the Superannuation Scheme Secretary are as follows:

Barry Dent
P O Box 36 287
Christchurch
Fax (03) 355 3499
Mobile (021) 653 499
Email bcdent@ihug.co.nz

Members who deposit the PCA allowance into the Super Scheme will currently attract the 11.30% earnings rate which is the current daily interest rate that the Scheme is paying at this point in time.

For further information, members can contact Barry Dent directly.
