The New Zealand Universities Superannuation Scheme has been established with the objective of providing employees of universities in New Zealand with retirement and other benefits. The University of Canterbury is a party to the Trust Deed which established the Scheme. It is a cash accumulation scheme in which individual accounts are held in the name of each member. The income of the Scheme is invested by several professional Fund Managers, and interest which is derived from these investments is credited from time to time to the individual member accounts. The ultimate benefits payable are based on the accumulated account balances held on behalf of each member and are available fully in lump sum form. Members may be either subsidised or unsubsidised in terms of the Trust Deed. An appointee can transfer a benefit into the Scheme from any other superannuation scheme, in which case the Trustees will determine what proportions of the transferred benefit are deemed to be member contribut- ions and employer contributions.
