Tax file numbers

We want to help you get the most from your super investment. That’s why we encourage you to supply your tax file number to avoid paying tax penalties.

If we do NOT have your TFN recorded:

Providing your TFN will also make it easier for you to trace different super accounts in your name so that you receive all your superannuation benefits when you retire.

It’s your responsibility to provide your TFN

As a member of Media Super it is your responsibility to ensure that Media Super has your TFN on file. If your employer has neglected to supply your TFN you may still be subject to additional tax.

The additional tax will be deducted directly from your Media Super account either at the end of the financial year or when any part of your account balance is withdrawn, whichever occurs first.

Provided that you supply us with a valid TFN within three years of the end of the financial year that the contributions are made, you may be entitled to a refund of the additional tax. Please note that refunds are subject to processing by the ATO.

Providing us with your TFN is quick and easy
