Deferred Membership

If you leave Fire and Emergency New Zealand due to resignation, redundancy, retirement, dismissal, or loss of physical or mental fitness, you have the option to delay receiving your benefit and continue your membership as a deferred member of FireSuper. There are several advantages to being a deferred member, including having your funds invested by leading investment managers, benefiting from wholesale investment charges instead of retail rates, and enjoying lower administration charges compared to many retail schemes. As a deferred member, you have the option to supplement your retirement income by making regular monthly withdrawals. Additionally, you have 24/7 access to FireSuper's secure website and the flexibility to make withdrawals at short notice while still being able to invest in higher-performing longer-term assets, such as equities.
