This document is a summary of significant information and contains references to further important information in the Investment Menu, Fee Flyer, Investment Protection Guide and Application Forms.

You should consider all information before making a decision to invest in this product.

This information is general and does not take into account your personal financial situation or needs.

We recommend you obtain financial advice for your own personal circumstances.

The MLC group of companies is the wealth management division of National Australia Bank. We provide investment, super and insurance solutions and work closely with you and your adviser to help grow and protect your wealth.

2How super worksInvesting through super is a tax-effective way to save for your retirement.

The Government encourages Australians to use super to build wealth that will generate income in their retirement, and it’s compulsory for contributions to be made to super for most working Australians. Tax concessions and other Government benefits generally make it one of the best long-term investment vehicles.

Contributing to your superYou can generally choose where you want to invest your super.

Generally you, your spouse or your employer can contribute to your super and help it grow faster. You could also use strategies that include Government co-contributions or arranging with your employer to contribute some of your pre-tax salary.

Whatever strategy you choose, you can contribute via direct debit, BPAY®, credit card or cheque. You can also set up a Regular Investment Facility to make contributions from your bank account.

® Registered to BPAY Pty Ltd ABN 69 079 137 518

While you can contribute as much as you like, you will incur additional tax if contributions exceed certain limits.

The law defines your eligibility, the types of contributions you or others can make on your behalf, and the maximum amount you can contribute before you pay additional tax. It also determines whether you are eligible to access your super. To find out more go to apra.gov.au or ato.gov.au or moneysmart.gov.au

Consolidating your superKeeping your super in one place makes sense. You can transfer the money you hold in other Australian and overseas super accounts to your MLC super account.

This gives you a single view of your money, helps you keep track of your investments and means you are only paying one set of fees for your super.

We recommend that you seek financial advice before consolidating your super as your fees and benefits may be different.

6Fees and costs

A tax benefit may apply to fees charged to your super account. All fees in the table below are before the tax benefit.

We charge the fees and then pass the tax benefit back to your super account as a credit, which effectively reduces the fees shown below by 15%.

The information in this table can be used to compare fees and costs between different superannuation products.

These fees and costs may be deducted from your account, from the returns on your investment or from fund assets as a whole.

To find out moreIf you would like to find out more, or see the impact of fees for your own circumstances, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) website (moneysmart.gov.au) has a Superannuation calculator to help you check out different fee options.

These fees apply to your combined super and pension accounts.

Example of annual fees and costsThis table is an example of how the fees and costs in a balanced option for this product can affect your investment over a one year period. You should use this table to compare this product with other super products.

Example: MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio

Balance of $50,000 with total contributions of $5,000 during the year

Contribution fees

0% For every $5,000 you put in, you’ll be charged $0.

Plus Management costs:

Administration fee

0.40% x $50,000

$200 And, for every $50,000 you have in the fund you will be charged $550 each year.

Investment fee

0.70%1 x $50,000

$350

Equals Cost of fund If you put in $5,000 during a year and your balance was $50,000, then for that year you will be charged fees of:

$5502

What it costs you will depend on the investment option you choose and the fees you negotiate with your fund or financial adviser.

1 The Indicative investment fee for MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio is 0.70%.2 Additional fees may apply: Establishment fee – $0. And, if you leave the fund early, you may be charged Withdrawal fees of 0% of your total account balance. A Termination fee of $0 is deducted from the amount paid when you make a full withdrawal. This example assumes no investment gains or losses during the year and the contribution was made on the last day of the year.

Administration fee

Account balance Percentage fee (% pa)

First $200,000 0.40

Next $600,000 0.25

Remaining balance over $800,000 0.20

Plus A fee of $2.50 per week if your account balance is below $50,000 when the Administration fee is deducted.

Investment fee Ranges from 0.25% pa to 4.32%1 pa.

Did you know?Small differences in both investment performance and fees and costs can have a substantial impact on your long-term returns.

For example, total annual fees and costs of 2% of your fund balance rather than 1% could reduce your final return by up to 20% over a 30 year period (for example, reduce it from $100,000 to $80,000).

You should consider whether features such as superior investment performance or the provision of better member services justify higher fees and costs.

You may be able to negotiate to pay a lower contribution fee and management costs where applicable. Ask us or your financial adviser.

4Risks of superBefore you do any investing in super, there are some things you need to consider including the level of risk you are prepared to accept. Factors that will affect your decision include:

• your investment goals

• the savings you’ll need to reach your goals

• how many years you have to invest

• the return you may expect from your investments, including investments outside of super, and

• how comfortable you are with investment risk.

Investment riskEven the simplest of investments come with a level of risk and different investments have different levels of risk.

While the idea of investment risk can be confronting, it’s a normal part of investing. Without it you may not get the returns you need to reach your financial goals. This is known as the risk/return trade-off.

When considering your investment, it’s important to understand that:

• its value will vary over time

• investments with higher return potential, usually have higher levels of risk

• returns aren’t guaranteed, and you may lose some of your money

• previous returns shouldn’t be used to predict future returns, and

• your final super balance may not provide for an adequate retirement.

Accessing the money you put into superBecause super is for your retirement the law is strict about how and when you can access your money. To find out more go to moneysmart.gov.au

Legislative changeJust as the Government makes rules, it can also change them. Your financial adviser can help you respond to any changes to laws on super, tax, social security and other retirement issues.

You should read the important information about our protection options in the Investment Protection Guide before making a decision. Go to mlc.com.au/pds/mkspfThe material relating to the Investment Protection Guide may change between the time when you read this Statement and the day when you sign the application form.

Things to considerbefore you invest

Before you do any investing, we want you to know about both the benefits and potential risks involved.

Even the simplest of investments come with a level of risk.

While the idea of investment risk can be confronting, it’s a normal part of investing. Without it you may not get the returns you need to reach your financial goals.

This is known as the risk/return trade-off.

The value of an investment with a higher level of risk will tend to rise and fall more often and by greater amounts.

In other words, it is likely to be more volatile than those with less risk.

Many factors influence an investment’s value. These include, but aren’t limited to:

•market sentiment

•growth and contraction in the Australian and overseas economies

• legislative changes

•changes in interest rates

•defaults on loans

•company specific issues

• liquidity (the ability to buy or sell investments when you want to), and

•changes in the value of the Australian dollar.

Things to considerbefore you invest

As demonstrated in the graphs below, investments that have often produced higher returns over long periods can be volatile in the short term.

Source: Graphs have been calculated by MLC using data presented in DMS Data Module offered through the Morningstar software program EnCorr.

By understanding volatility will occur, you’ll be able to manage your expectations and resist reacting to these short-term movements.

This will help you stay true to your investment strategy, and keep on track to achieve your long-term goals.

Diversify to reduce volatility and other risksDiversification is a sound way to reduce short-term volatility. It also helps you manage the risk of not being able to buy or sell assets when you want to.

The more you diversify the less impact any one investment can have on your portfolio.

One of the most effective ways of reducing volatility is to diversify across a range of asset classes.

Asset classes are groups of similar types of investments.

Each class has its risks and benefits, and goes through its own market cycle. A market cycle can take a couple of years or many years; it’s different each time.

In the description of the investment options (from page 10), we include a minimum time to invest. Investing for the minimum time or longer improves your chances of achieving the return you expect. However, returns can’t be guaranteed.

You need to be prepared for all sorts of return outcomes when investing.

The main asset class risks and benefits are:

CashCash tends to be included in a portfolio to meet liquidity needs.

Things to consider:

•Cash is usually the least volatile type of investment. It also tends to have the lowest return over a market cycle.

•The return is typically all income and is referred to as interest or yield.

•The market value tends not to change. However, when you invest in cash, you’re effectively lending money to businesses or governments that could default on the loans. A default could result in a loss on your investment.

•Many cash funds invest in fixed income securities that have a very short term until maturity.

•Cash is generally a low risk investment.

Fixed incomeWhen investing in fixed income securities, you’re effectively lending money to businesses or governments.

Returns typically comprise interest and changes in the market value of the security.

Things to consider:

•There are different types of fixed income securities and these will have different returns and volatility.

•Fixed income securities denominated in foreign currencies will be exposed to exchange rate variations.

•The market value of a fixed income security may fall due to factors such as an increase to interest rates or concern about defaults on loans. This may result in a loss on your investment.

•The interest rate on a term deposit is fixed for its specified term. That means the return won’t be affected by a change in interest rates for the term of the deposit.

•Fixed income securities are usually included in a portfolio for their defensive characteristics.

Property securitiesInvesting in property securities will give your portfolio exposure to listed property securities in Australia and around the world. These are referred to as Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs).

Things to consider:

•Returns are driven by many factors including the economic environment in various countries.

•Australian property securities are dominated by only a few REITs and provide limited diversification.

• Investing outside Australia means you’re exposed to exchange rate variations.

• Property securities may be volatile and are usually included in a portfolio for their income and growth characteristics.

A financial adviser can create a financial plan to help you manage risk and consider issues such as:

•how many years you have to invest

•the savings you’ll need to reach your goals

•the return you may expect from your investments, and

•how comfortable you are with volatility.

Things to considerbefore you invest

Australian sharesThis asset class consists of investments in companies listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (and other regulated exchanges). Shares are also known as equities.

Things to consider:

•The Australian share market has recently been dominated by a few industries such as Financials and Resources.

•Australian shares can be volatile and are usually included in a portfolio for their growth characteristics.

• Australian shares may provide dividend income and tax advantages through imputation (franking) credits.

Global sharesGlobal shares consist of investments in companies listed on securities exchanges around the world.

Things to consider:

•The number of potential investments is far greater than in Australian shares.

•Returns are driven by many factors including the economic environment in various countries.

•When you invest globally, you’re less exposed to the risks associated with investing in just one economy.

• Investing outside Australia means you’re exposed to exchange rate variations.

•Global shares can be volatile and are usually included in a portfolio for their growth characteristics.

Private assetsThese are investments in assets that aren’t traded on listed exchanges. An example of this is an investment in a privately owned business.

Things to consider:

•Private assets are illiquid which makes them difficult to buy or sell.

•To access private assets you generally need to do so via a managed fund.

•Because private assets aren’t listed on an exchange, determining their value is difficult and may involve a considerable time lag. This means you need to be careful in interpreting the unit price of any fund with a substantial holding of private assets.

•Returns are driven by many factors including the economic environment in various countries.

•You may be exposed to exchange rate variations.

•Private assets can be volatile and are usually included in a portfolio for their growth characteristics.

Investment techniquesInvestment managers, including MLC, use different investment techniques that can change the value of an investment.

Derivatives are an investment technique generally used in all the investment options.

DerivativesDerivatives are a common tool used to enhance returns or manage risk.

They are contracts that have a value derived from an external reference (eg the level of a share price index).

There are many types of derivatives and they can be an invaluable tool for an investment manager.

However, they can incur significant losses.

MLC’s Derivative Policy, which outlines how we manage derivatives, is available on mlc.com.au

How the other managers invest in derivatives is included in their Product Disclosure Statement available on mlc.com.au

And there are additional investment techniques used in some investment options. Where these techniques are used extensively, we’ve made a note of it from page 10 (under the relevant investment options).

Diversification across asset classes is just one way of managing risk. At MLC, we can diversify across asset classes and investment managers.

Please read more about our investment approach on page 8.

Page 22: MLC MasterKey Super & Pension Fundamentals · MLC MasterKey Pension Fundamentals and MLC MasterKey Super Fundamentals accounts. How to contact MLC For more information, call MLC from

MLC MasterKey Super & Pension Fundamentals Investment Menu Page 6

These include:

Currency managementCurrency management is a form of hedging. If an investment manager invests in assets in other countries, the value will be affected by the exchange rate.

Returns from global investments reflect movements in currency exchange rates (gains and losses), as well as movements in the value of the underlying securities.

Where desired, this can largely be managed through hedging the currency exposure back to Australian dollars.

GearingGearing an investment through borrowing, or leverage by using derivatives, magnifies your exposure to the potential gains and losses and risks of an investment. As a result, you can expect larger fluctuations (both up and down) in the value of your investment (ie increased volatility), compared to the same investment which is not geared. And the less diversified the investment is across asset classes, investment managers and securities, the greater this potential volatility.

When asset values are rising by more than the costs of gearing, a geared investment will generally have a higher return than if it wasn’t geared. In rising markets it can be easy to lose sight of the risk of a fall. Falling values are inevitable from time to time and in a geared investment they are accentuated because exposure to the assets is higher. If the fall is dramatic there can be even more implications for geared investments.

For example, the lender requires the gearing level be maintained below a predetermined limit. If asset values fall dramatically, the gearing level may rise above the limit forcing assets to be sold when values may be continuing to fall.

In turn this could lead to more assets having to be sold and more losses realised. Withdrawals (and applications) may be suspended in such circumstances, preventing you from accessing your investments at a time when values continue to fall.

Although this is an extreme example, significant market falls have occurred in the past. Recovering from such falls can take many years and the geared investment’s unit price may not return to its previous high.

Other circumstances (such as the lender requiring the loan to be repaid for other reasons) may also prevent a geared investment from being managed as planned, leading to losses.

You need to be prepared for all types of environments and understand their impact on your geared investment.

Short-sellingShort-selling is used by an investment manager when it has a view that an asset’s price will fall. The manager borrows the asset and sells it with the intention of buying it back at a lower price. If all goes to plan, a profit is made. However, if the price of the asset increases, then the loss could be significant.

Ethical investingInvestment managers may take into account labour standards, environmental, social or ethical considerations when making decisions to buy or sell investments. At MLC, we expect our active investment managers to consider any material effect these factors may have on the returns from their investments, however we don’t require them to.

How much consideration the other managers give to these factors is included in their Product Disclosure Statement available on mlc.com.au

Standard Risk MeasureThe description of each investment option includes a Standard Risk Measure. This enables investors to compare investment options using a simple measure of investment risk.

That measure is the estimated number of negative annual returns in any 20-year period. Of course, the number of negative years that occur in a 20-year period may be different to the estimated number.

The Standard Risk Measure categories are based on industry guidelines. The risk categories are:

The Standard Risk Measure is not a complete assessment of investment risk. For example:

• it doesn’t capture the size of a possible negative return or the potential for a positive return to be less than an investor may need to meet their investment objectives, and

• it doesn’t take into account the impact of administration fees and tax. These would increase the chance of a negative return.

There are many ways you, and your financial adviser, can assess the impact of risk on your investment strategy. You should make sure you’re comfortable with the risks and potential losses associated with the investment options you choose.

You can read about how we calculate the Standard Risk Measure at mlc.com.au

MLC’s approachto investing

We design investment solutions to deliver more reliable returns to investors.

For over 25 years, we’ve been designing portfolios to help investors achieve their goals.

The four key aspects of our unique investment approach are:

1 Portfolio designOur portfolios focus on what affects investor outcomes the most: asset allocation.

We allocate money between asset classes based on the following beliefs:

Diversification matters Asset classes perform differently in different circumstances, so we invest in many asset classes.

This helps us smooth the overall portfolio returns as we can offset the ups and downs of each asset class.

Risk can’t be avoided, but can be managedEach asset class has its own return and risk characteristics.

This becomes more obvious when you look at performance over a long period of time.

We consider potential market scenarios—both good and bad—to work out what combination of investments is likely to be rewarded.

The process also reveals how risk can change in different market environments.

This helps us prepare our portfolios for future market ups and downs.

Risks and returns vary through time

We have the flexibility to adjust our portfolios to exploit changes in risk and return potential. We base these adjustments on our three to seven-year assessment of the market environment.

2 Managing the portfolio Our portfolios have different investment objectives. That’s why each has a different mix of assets and managers.

Our managers may be specialist in-house managers, external investment managers or a blend.

We research hundreds of investment managers from around the world and select some of the best for our portfolios.

We then combine them in our portfolios so they complement each other.

You can find out about our current investment managers at mlc.com.au

3 Ongoing reviewTo make sure our portfolios are working hard for our investors, we continuously review and actively manage them.

We may adjust the asset allocation, investment strategies and managers.

This may be because our view of the future market environment has altered or because we have found new ways to balance risk and return in the portfolios.

4 Portfolio implementation We deliver better returns by avoiding unnecessary costs. We do this by carefully managing cash flows and changes in our portfolios.

Our knowledge of local tax requirements means our portfolios are sensitive to the needs of Australian investors.

The MLC differenceOur leading-edge approach to portfolio design recognises we live in a complex, changing world.

We constantly explore the many ways events could unfold in markets worldwide and their potential impact on our portfolios.

Through this careful analysis, our experts discover changing risks and opportunities. We can then adjust our portfolios to manage the risks and capture the potential returns.

This means our portfolios are better positioned to deliver more reliable long-term returns to investors.

Investingwith MLC

Our portfolios make sophisticated investing straightforward.

We base our portfolios on the fundamental needs of our investors; to grow wealth for the long term.

MLC portfoliosWhen you’re invested in an MLC portfolio, your money is with Australia’s largest and most experienced multi-manager.

Each portfolio uses the MLC approach to investing and benefits from our leading-edge portfolio design process, our manager research capability, and our experience and knowledge of investing.

MLC Horizon Series of portfolios

We designed the MLC Horizon Series of portfolios so you can select an expected risk and return profile to meet your needs.

This comprehensive series of portfolios means, wherever you are in life, you can choose an investment solution to suit you.

Each MLC Horizon portfolio brings together a specific combination of assets and managers and is an easy way to gain access to sophisticated investments. This way you can implement your financial plan with confidence.

MLC asset class portfoliosYou may decide to implement your investment strategy using our asset class portfolios.

These portfolios invest in one asset class and cater for people looking for a complete asset class solution, or a particular investment style.

MLC Index Plus portfoliosWe combine our innovative approach to asset allocation with a smaller set of managers in our Index Plus portfolios. These portfolios mainly consist of index managers that aim to provide similar returns to the market.

MLC Long-Term Absolute Return Portfolio This portfolio goes beyond conventional investing.

It accesses more sources of return and an even broader range of assets and strategies than the MLC Horizon Series of portfolios.

Cash and term depositsWe also offer a range of term deposits and the MLC Cash Fund as a cash option.

Investment options not managed by MLCWe recognise some investors want extra options when it comes to managing their money.

To help give you this choice, we also offer investment options not managed by MLC.

MLC Horizon Seriesof portfolios

Investment objectiveEach portfolio aims to grow your wealth for an expected level of risk.

About the investment optionsWhere you are in life, and what your investment goals are, will influence the kind of investment you choose.

We designed the MLC Horizon Series of portfolios with this in mind as each portfolio offers a different risk and return expectation. So whatever your circumstances are now, and as they change over time, you can choose the portfolio to suit your specific needs.

At the lower end of the risk and return potential is MLC Horizon 1. This invests in defensive assets such as fixed income and cash. At the higher end of the risk and return potential is MLC Horizon 7 which gears its investment into growth assets such as shares.

The portfolios use all aspects of our approach to investing described on page 8. They’re actively managed and broadly diversified within asset classes, across asset classes and across investment managers. These managers invest in many companies and securities around the world.

The main asset classes are described on pages 4 and 5.

Target gearing levelAs at 30 June 2012, for every $1,000 you have invested, the Portfolio targets borrowings of $300. The actual gearing level changes every day. That’s why we monitor the Portfolio’s actual gearing level against its target and regularly move the borrowings back to the target level.

Seeking to maintain the target gearing level involves adjusting the borrowings as well as buying and selling assets. This increased trading will incur transaction costs and realise tax gains and losses.

We may change the target gearing level without prior notice to you.

In some circumstances it is possible that the Portfolio may not be geared for a, potentially extended, period of time.

Target gearing levels are available on mlc.com.au. You should check this to ensure you are comfortable with the target gearing level prior to investing in the Portfolio.

We may adjust the target allocation within these ranges

MLC Index Plus portfolios

Investment objectiveEach portfolio aims to grow your wealth for an expected level of risk.

About the investment optionsEach MLC Index Plus portfolio offers a diversified investment solution. They are designed using all aspects of our approach to investing, except they have a greater focus on:

• investing in conventional asset classes (described on pages 4 and 5) and

• index (passive) rather than active managers (as shown in target allocation)

We expect index managers to provide similar returns to the market (before taking into account fees and taxes).

MLC Long-Term Absolute Return Portfolio

MLC Long-Term Absolute Return Portfolio

Investment objective Aims to maximise its return (above inflation, and after deducting investment fees and tax) over rolling 20-year periods, while ensuring a high likelihood of it being positive over that timeframe.

About the investment option The Portfolio is designed using three steps:

1. It invests broadly across asset classes, many of which are unconventional (eg insurance related investments, private assets and inflation-linked bonds). This reduces its dependency on a single source of return. While investing in shares will generally be an important part of the Portfolio’s strategy, its exposure to the Australian share market shouldn’t dominate.

The Portfolio also uses a number of investment managers that aren’t limited to just one asset class, and may apply short-selling techniques to enhance returns. Over time, the Portfolio may take advantage of a variety of investment opportunities as they arise.

2. This diversified strategy is then geared in order to meet its 20-year objective.

3. We then take this strategy and adjust it to exploit swings in return and risk potential. We base these adjustments on our three to seven-year assessment of the market environment.

The resulting target asset allocation is shown on the following page.

The Portfolio invests significantly in assets that can’t easily be sold. And it may be significantly geared (it’s allowed to invest up to $1,000 for every $1,000 you invest, and in extreme market conditions this level of gearing may be exceeded). The combination of these facts means that, from time to time, we may suspend your ability to put money into or take money out of the Portfolio. For this reason, you’re only allowed to hold up to 25% of your pension account in this Portfolio.

The investment option may be suited to you if …

You want to:

• take a genuinely long-term investment approach

• focus on achieving returns above inflation, and can tolerate significant short-term volatility to achieve those returns

•access the benefits of a geared portfolio and are comfortable with the risks of gearing including extra volatility and increased risk of capital loss, outlined on page 6 and below

•diversify across a wider range of asset classes, and

•access long-term and/or unconventional asset classes and investment strategies while accepting that such strategies may take years to reward you.

And you’re willing to accept:

•both financially and emotionally, that the Portfolio may have substantially different returns to other investments

• the Portfolio may be illiquid for some time, potentially years, and

•at its target gearing level (at 30 June 2012) the Portfolio’s unit price would theoretically fall to zero if its asset values fell suddenly by 92%. Lesser falls may cause substantial reductions in unit prices which may trigger the suspension of withdrawals and applications.

Minimum suggested time to invest Seven to ten years

Cash and term deposits

MLC Cash Fund NAB Term Deposits

Investment objective Aims to provide competitive returns relative to the Reserve Bank of Australia’s Cash Rate Target.

The interest rate on a term deposit is fixed for the term you select.

About the investment option The Fund invests in deposits with banks (100% National Australia Bank as at 30 June 2012) and may also invest in other comparable high quality securities.

MLC Limited guarantees the value of your investment in the MLC Cash Fund (before the deduction of tax and fees).

You can select a six month, one year or two year term. You can find current interest rates on mlc.com.au

How much you can investYou can invest up to 70% of your account balance in term deposits. You can’t invest once you reach the age of 90 or as part of a regular contribution strategy.

Term deposits are invested for a fixed term. Early withdrawals are only permitted in extreme circumstances and will result in reduced interest.

Maintaining your account balanceWhen you invest in term deposits, you’ll also need to make sure you maintain at least 10% of each of your super and pension account balances in other investment options (not term deposits).

This allows us to process your withdrawal requests and pension payments and also pay fees and other costs for your account. If you make a one-off withdrawal request which would make your account balance fall below this 10% minimum, then we may not process it.

How interest is paidInterest will be paid into your nominated investment option on maturity. Interest on the two year term is paid annually on the anniversary into the MLC Cash Fund with the remaining interest paid on maturity.

The investment option may be suited to you if …

You want to invest in a low risk cash portfolio. You want to achieve a fixed rate of return for a set period.

Minimum suggested time to invest

Investment options not managed by MLC

These are single asset class investment options from other managers.

We recognise some investors want extra options when it comes to managing their money.

To help you do this, we offer options from other managers that don’t use MLC’s approach to investing, for you and your financial adviser to choose from.

We’ve provided an overview of each manager’s investment objective and their investment approach. You can find further details on each investment option in the managers’ Product Disclosure Statement on mlc.com.au

The indicative investment fees will include any costs incurred by MLC and rebates from the managers.

If you’re considering investing in only these investment options, you will need to be careful as your portfolio may not be adequately diversified.

Investment objective To track the return (income and capital appreciation) of the UBS Australian Composite Bond Index before taking into account fund fees, expenses and tax.

To track the return (income and capital appreciation) of the Barclays Global Treasury Index hedged into Australian dollars before taking into account fund fees, expenses and tax.

About the investment option

The UBS Australian Composite Bond Index is a value-weighted index of approximately 360 securities (bonds) issued by the Commonwealth Government of Australia, State Government authorities and treasury corporations, as well as investment-grade corporate issuers. Investment-grade issuers are defined as those rated BBB- or higher by Standard & Poor’s or Baa3 or higher by Moody’s. Bond indices change far more quickly than share indices because bonds have a finite life (maturity). Every maturity and inclusion of new issues changes the composition of the index and requires Vanguard to modify the portfolio.

A representative sample of bonds is selected from the Index to form the portfolio. Bond indices change far more quickly than share indices because bonds have a finite life (maturity).

Investment objective To provide returns above the benchmark over the medium to long term, before fees and tax.

To provide long-term capital growth and some income by investing primarily in a diverse portfolio of smaller companies listed, or expected to be listed, on the Australian Securities Exchange.

To outperform the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index over rolling four-year periods, after taking into account fees, but before tax.

To outperform the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index, over rolling three-year periods after fees and expenses.

About the investment option The Fund aims to invest in mid and small cap stocks which possess potential for superior growth. Ausbil believes that a company’s share price ultimately follows earnings (and earnings revisions). At all times the Fund will favour sectors and specific companies which it believes will experience positive earnings revisions.

Fairview aims to achieve returns above its benchmark through its core active investment process. This approach is collaborative and research driven, combining high levels of company contact, detailed analysis, a robust peer review process and appropriate risk controls.

The NAB group holds a minority interest in Fairview.

Invests in a diversified portfolio of high quality Australian companies that display four characteristics: a sustainable competitive advantage, recurring earnings, capable management and the ability to grow over time. Investors Mutual Limited believes in purchasing quality companies at attractive prices when a company’s price is below its long-term value.

A representative sample of shares is selected from the Index to form the portfolio. Individual security weightings may vary marginally from the Index from time to time. The Fund may invest in securities that have been, or are expected to be, included in the Index.

Northward believes that a disciplined, fundamental research approach to identify undervalued quality companies will generate strong investment returns over the long term. Investment opportunities are identified using a multi portfolio manager investment approach driven by rigorous bottom-up company research.

The NAB group holds a minority interest in Northward.

Northward Capital Australian Equity Trust

To provide long-term capital growth and some income by investing primarily in a diverse portfolio of smaller companies listed, or expected to be listed, on the Australian Securities Exchange.

To outperform the S&P/ASX 300 Accumulation Index over rolling four-year periods, after taking into account fees, but before tax.

About the investment option The Fund aims to invest in mid and small cap stocks which possess potential for superior growth. Ausbil believes that a company’s share price ultimately follows earnings (and earnings revisions). At all times the Fund will favour sectors and specific companies which it believes will experience positive earnings revisions.

Fairview aims to achieve returns above its benchmark through its core active investment process. This approach is collaborative and research driven, combining high levels of company contact, detailed analysis, a robust peer review process and appropriate risk controls.

The NAB group holds a minority interest in Fairview.

Invests in a diversified portfolio of high quality Australian companies that display four characteristics: a sustainable competitive advantage, recurring earnings, capable management and the ability to grow over time. Investors Mutual Limited believes in purchasing quality companies at attractive prices when a company’s price is below its long-term value.

A representative sample of shares is selected from the Index to form the portfolio. Individual security weightings may vary marginally from the Index from time to time. The Fund may invest in securities that have been, or are expected to be, included in the Index.

Northward believes that a disciplined, fundamental research approach to identify undervalued quality companies will generate strong investment returns over the long term. Investment opportunities are identified using a multi portfolio manager investment approach driven by rigorous bottom-up company research.

Protect your wealth with investment protection.

MLC MasterKey Investment Protection

If you want to take advantage of market growth and protect your savings, then investment protection may be right for you.

With MLC MasterKey Investment Protection you can invest with greater certainty and protect some or all of your super or pension.

You can choose from two types of protection:

1. Protected Capital – provides certainty of capital over 10 or 20 years and potential for growth.

2. Protected Income – provides certainty of income over 10, 20 years or for life and potential for growth.

Once you have chosen which type of protection is right for you, you then choose the investment option that best suits your needs (please see page 13).

Your protected account balance will still move up and down with market movements but regardless of how markets move, you’ll always know:

• the minimum amount you’ll receive at the end of the term with Protected Capital, or

• the minimum amount of income you’ll receive over the term with Protected Income.

MLC MasterKey Super & Pension Fundamentals Investment Protection Guide Page 2

Things you should consider

MLC MasterKey Investment Protection provides greater certainty around the value of your savings or income, but there are a few things you should consider.

Your investment timeframeYou can choose different terms to protect your savings or income. To receive the full benefit of the investment protection, please make sure the term you choose is consistent with your investment time horizon. This means that if you choose a 20 year term, you’re willing to remain invested in your chosen investment option for 20 years.

Ending your protection earlyYou can end your protection early, but you won’t receive the benefit of the protection on your account and you’ll have to wait 6 months to apply again for protection.

Accessing your account balanceYou can withdraw or switch throughout your term, however this will reduce the amount you have protected. So you may only want to protect some of your super or pension account balance.

Changing your protectionOnce your protection has started, you can’t change it. So before investing, please make sure you’ve chosen the right MLC MasterKey Investment Protection to suit your needs.

Paying your protection if you dieUnder super laws, we’ll pay your account balance when we’re advised of your death. Your protected amount will only be paid if you choose the death benefit option in Protected Capital or spouse benefit option in Protected Income.

When your protection endsYour protection will end if you withdraw your protected account balance before the end of your term. This includes if you need to take your super early for Total & Permanent Disability or financial hardship. For further details on when your protection ends, please see page 14.

Changes we may make to your protectionWe may need to change the protection features even after you’ve started your protection.

Changes can happen at any time as a result of legislative or regulatory changes. Otherwise the changes listed below can only happen if certain events happen first, eg material or adverse long term changes in market or demographic conditions.

Changes that may be made include:

• the fee you pay for protection, however it won’t exceed 7% pa

• switching your protected account balance in to a new investment option

• only allowing future contributions to a different investment option to the one you’ve chosen

• how often market gains may be ‘locked-in’, but the lock-in will be at least every two years

• reducing the withdrawal limit if you choose Protected Capital

• stopping or restricting the addition of new investments into your protection

• reducing your protected income payments, if you choose an income for life, but by no more than 20%.

If any of these changes occur, we’ll let you know before the change is made.

Page 3 MLC MasterKey Super & Pension Fundamentals Investment Protection Guide

With Protected Capital you can choose to protect some or all of your MLC MasterKey super or pension account balance.

Once you’ve chosen a term of either 10 or 20 years, you then select which investment option best suits your needs. You can only invest your protected account balance in one investment option. And, your account balance without protection can’t be invested in the same investment option.

The initial amount you invest in Protected Capital is your protected capital value.

Your protected account balance will still move up and down with market movements. Each year, on your investment anniversary, your protected capital value may increase depending on the performance of the investment option you’ve chosen.

Your protected capital value will:

• increase if your protected account balance on your anniversary date is higher than your protected capital value. If this is the case your protected capital value will increase to equal your protected account balance, or

• remain the same if your protected account balance on your anniversary date is lower than your protected capital value.

So, regardless of how markets move, you’ll always know the minimum amount you’ll receive at the end of your selected term.

During your term, your protected account balance and protected capital value will:

• decrease with any withdrawals you make, or

• if you choose the additional investment benefit option, increase with any additional investments you make.

An example of how Protected Capital works is shown on the next page.

Who can apply?You need to be 50 years of age or older to apply.

Can you move between super and pension during your term?Yes, your protection will continue during your term if you:

• move into pension phase, or

• set up a transition to retirement pension.

You can’t transfer your protection from pension back to super unless you’re in a transition to retirement pension.

But if you’re in a transition to retirement pension you can’t add to your protection even when you transfer back to super. You may however, add to that part of your account that isn’t protected.

Because the super and pension laws are complex, we recommend you talk to a financial adviser.

Protected Capital

Provides certainty of capital over 10 or 20 years and potential for growth.

Benefits of Protected Capital• Security of knowing your

protected capital value won’t decrease when markets decrease

• Confidence to invest in a diversified portfolio and take advantage of market increases

• You can choose to increase the amount you’ve protected through additional investments in super, and

• You can transition from super to pension and keep your protection when you retire.

Term (Years)

You have an MLC MasterKey Super Fundamentals account and have chosen to protect $200,000 for 10 years in the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio.

1. Your initial investment amount of $200,000 in the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio is your protected capital value. Your term starts on this day.

2. Your protected account balance moves with the investment performance of the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced  Portfolio.

3. Each year on your investment anniversary, if your protected account balance in the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio is higher than your protected capital value due to positive investment performance, then your protected capital value will increase and be locked-in at this higher amount.

4. If your protected account balance has decreased due to negative investment performance of the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio, then your protected capital value remains the same.

5. At the end of your 10 year term if your protected capital value is $280,000, which is greater than your protected account balance of $270,000, you’ll receive a payment of $10,000 into your MLC Cash Fund.

If your protected account balance was greater than your protected capital value, no additional payment would be made, and you’ll simply have your account balance.

Protected Capital

How withdrawals and switches will affect your protected capital valueYou can make withdrawals or switches from your protected account balance.

Other withdrawals or switches, including to pay Adviser service fees or insurance premiums, will reduce your protected account balance and your protected capital value. The more you withdraw, the greater the impact on your protected capital value.

When your protected capital value is lower than your protected account balance

When your protected capital value is higher than your protected account balance

Your protected capital value is $180,000 and your protected account balance is $200,000. You withdraw $40,000, which reduces both your protected capital value and your protected account balance by $40,000.Therefore your:•protected capital value is

$180,000 – $40,000 = $140,000, and•protected account balance is

$200,000 – $40,000 = $160,000.

Your protected capital value is $220,000 and your protected account balance is $200,000. You withdraw $40,000, which reduces your protected account by $40,000. The amount your protected capital value is reduced by is calculated as:•dividing your withdrawal amount by your

protected account balance $40,000 / $200,000 = 20%, then

•proportionally reducing your protected capital value by this percentage, ie » $220,000 x 20% = $44,000 » $220,000 – $44,000 = $176,000.

Protection fees, administration fees and investment fees (including transaction costs) won’t reduce your protected capital value, but they will reduce your protected account balance.

If you’re in superWe’ll reduce your protected capital value by the same amount as your withdrawal or switch if your protected capital value is lower than your protected account balance. Otherwise, we’ll reduce your protected capital value by more than the withdrawal amount.

If you’ve chosen the additional investments benefit option, any withdrawals will also reduce the amount you can contribute each year, please see ‘Withdrawals and your annual investment limit’ on page 14.

Examples of how this works are shown below.

When you withdraw up to your annual withdrawal limit

When you withdraw more than your annual withdrawal limit and your protected capital value is lower than your protected account balance

When you withdraw more than your annual withdrawal limit and your protected capital value is higher than your protected account balance

Your protected account balance at your last investment anniversary was $400,000. Therefore your annual withdrawal limit is $400,000 x 15% = $60,000. Currently your protected capital value is $430,000 and your protected account balance is $410,000.

Your protected capital value is $400,000 and your protected account balance is $430,000. You have already withdrawn up to your annual withdrawal limit for the year.

Your protected capital value is $370,000 and your protected account balance is $350,000. You have already withdrawn up to your annual withdrawal limit for the year.

You withdraw $60,000. You withdraw $40,000. You withdraw a further $35,000, which reduces your account balance by $35,000.

Therefore your: •protected capital value is

$430,000 – $60,000 = $370,000, and•protected account balance is

$410,000 – $60,000 = $350,000.

Therefore your: •protected capital value is

$400,000 –  $40,000 = $360,000, and•protected account balance is

$430,000 – $40,000 = $390,000.

The amount your protected capital value is reduced by is calculated as:•dividing your withdrawal amount by your

protected account balance $35,000 / $350,000 = 10%, then

•proportionally reducing your protected capital value by this percentage, ie » $370,000 x 10% = $37,000 » $370,000 – $37,000 = $333,000.

If you’re in pensionYou can withdraw from your protected account balance up to your annual withdrawal limit each year and your protected capital value will be reduced by the same amount. Your annual withdrawal limit is calculated as 15% of your protected account balance as at your last investment anniversary.

If you withdraw more than your annual withdrawal limit, we’ll reduce your protected capital value by:

• the same amount as your withdrawal when your protected capital value is lower than your protected account balance, or

• more than your withdrawal when your protected capital value is higher than your protected account balance.

Examples of how this works are shown below.

Protected Income

Provides certainty of income over 10, 20 years or for life and growth potential.

With Protected Income you can use some or all of your MLC MasterKey super or pension account balance to provide you with a minimum level of income in retirement.

Once you’ve chosen a term of either 10, 20 years or for life, you then select which investment option best suits your needs and when you want your term to start.

You can only invest your protected account balance in one investment option. And, your account balance without protection can’t be invested in the same investment option.

The initial amount you invest in Protected Income becomes your protected income base. And, your protected income payment is the income you receive.

Your protected account balance will still move up and down with market movements. Each year, on your investment anniversary, your protected income base may be increased depending on the performance of the investment option you’ve chosen.

Your protected income base will:

• increase if your protected account balance on your anniversary date is higher than your protected income base. If this is the case your protected income base will increase to equal your protected account balance, or

• remain the same if your protected account balance on your anniversary date is lower than your protected income base.

During the year, your protected account balance and protected income base will:

• decrease with any withdrawals you make that exceed your protected income payments, and

• increase with any additional investments you make, while you’re in super.

Depending on your retirement goals, you can begin this type of protection in:

• super and add to your protection by up to 30% each year

• pension and let us know when you want to start receiving your protected income payments, or

• pension and start receiving your protected income payments straight away.

Whichever way you want to start your protection, you can select when you want to start your term, but you can’t change the other features of your protection once you have chosen them.

Benefits of Protected Income• Safe, reliable income for the term

you choose

• Security of knowing the minimum income you’ll receive each year

• Confidence to invest in a diversified portfolio, and take advantage of market increases

• Flexibility to choose when you start receiving your protected income payments, and

• Access to your protected account balance, subject to legislative requirements, if you need it. Please also see ‘When your protection ends’ on page 14.

Page 9 MLC MasterKey Super & Pension Fundamentals Investment Protection Guide

How much Protected Income will I receive?The protected income payments you’ll receive each year are equal to a set percentage of your protected income base. This percentage is based on the term you select at the beginning of your protection as follows:

Term Each year your protected income payments will be

10 years 10% of your protected income base.

20 years 5% of your protected income base.

For life 4% of your protected income base, if you begin receiving your protected income payments before age 65; or5% of your protected income base, if you begin receiving your protected income payments on or after age 65.

If your protected income base increases due to additional investments while in super or positive market performance, then your protected income payments will also increase proportionately.

You can choose when you’d like to receive your protected income payments during the year.

You may also choose, to receive more or less than the percentage shown above in the table. If you elect to take:

• more, your protected income base will decrease. Please see withdrawals on page 12.

• less, then each year, on your investment anniversary we’ll calculate the protected income payments you’ve received and compare this to the protected income payments you should have received for the year. Any additional amount will be transferred to your MLC Cash Fund.

An example of how Protected Income works is shown on the next page.

Government minimumsThe income you need to withdraw from your pension each year is still subject to Government minimum limits.

If the Government minimum limit on your protected account balance, is greater than your protected income payments, and additional payments are required, we’ll pay the additional amount to you. This will decrease your protected account balance, but it won’t affect your protected income base.

Government limits may change from time to time. More information can be found on ato.gov.au

Who can apply?You need to be 50 years of age or older to apply. Also, to start receiving an income you need to have reached your preservation age (currently 55 years of age or older) and have commenced a pension.

You can’t have Protected Income if you have a transition to retirement pension in place.

Can you add to your protected account balance?If you’re in super, you can add to your protected account balance at any time by up to 30% of your initial investment amount each year. This is your annual investment limit and is shown in your anniversary summary or view online at mlc.com.au

Additional investments include all amounts added to your protected account balance, including switches in.

Any withdrawals or switches out, you make in super will reduce your annual investment limit. Please see page 14 for more information.

When you transfer from super to pension, you can no longer add to your protection.

Protected Income

How can you receive your protected income payments?You can choose to receive your protected income payments as:

• part of your pension draw down strategy paid to your nominated bank account, or

• a switch to your account balance without protection within your super or pension account.

When your protected account balance is reduced to the minimum balance (please see page 13) then your protected income payments will be paid to your MLC Cash Fund on a monthly basis for the remainder of your term.

Can you move between super and pension during your term?You can start your protection in super and then move to pension before you choose to receive protected income payments. Once you have transferred to pension you can’t move back to super and keep your protection.

Suspending your protected income paymentsWhile we’re paying protected income payments, we may request proof that you or your spouse (if you choose the Spouse benefit option) are still alive. Until we receive confirmation to our satisfaction, we may suspend your protected income payments.

You have an MLC MasterKey Super Fundamentals account and have chosen to protect $350,000 in the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio. You want to retire in 6 years time and then receive income payments for 20 years.

1. Your initial investment amount of $350,000 in the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio is your protected income base.

2. Your protected account balance moves with the investment performance of the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio. Each year on your investment anniversary, if your protected account balance in the MLC Horizon 4 Balanced Portfolio is higher than your protected income base due to positive investment performance, then your protected income base will increase and be locked in at this higher amount.

3. After 6 years your protected income base has increased to $500,000. You move to pension and elect to start your 20 year term. Your protected income payments each year are 5% of $500,000 or $25,000.

4. Each year, on your investment anniversary, your protected account balance is reviewed. During the first year of your term, your protected account balance has increased to more than your previous protected income base. Your protected income base increases to $520,000 and is locked in. Your protected income payments are now 5% of this amount, ie $26,000.

5. During your term, your protected account balance decreases as a result of the protected income payments, fees and market declines, but your protected income base, and therefore your protected income payments, remain the same.

6. After 17 years, your protected account balance no longer covers your protected income payments, but you continue to receive protected income payments of $26,000 for the remainder of your 20 year term.

Can you withdraw or switch?You can make withdrawals or switches from your protected account balance at any time, but withdrawals or switches that exceed your protected income payments each year, will reduce your protected income base.

Other withdrawals or switches, including to pay adviser service fees or insurance premiums, other than your protected income payments each year will reduce both your protected account balance and your protected income base. The more you withdraw, the greater the impact on your protected income base.

Protection fees, administration fees and investment fees (including transaction costs) won’t reduce your protected income base but they will reduce your protected account balance.

When your protected income base is lower than your protected account balance

When your protected income base is higher than your protected account balance

Your protected income base is $180,000 and your protected account balance is $200,000. You withdraw $40,000, which reduces your protected income base and your protected account balance by $40,000. Therefore your: •protected income base is

$200,000 – $40,000 = $160,000.

Your protected income base is $220,000 and your protected account balance is $200,000. You withdraw $40,000, which reduces your protected account balance by $40,000. The amount your protected income base is reduced by is calculated as:•dividing your withdrawal amount by your

•proportionally reducing your protected income base by this percentage, ie » $220,000 x 20% = $44,000 » $220,000 – $44,000 = $176,000.

If you’re in superWe’ll reduce your protected income base by the same amount as your withdrawal or switch when your protected income base is lower than your protected account balance at the time of your withdrawal. Otherwise, we’ll reduce your protected income base by more than the withdrawal amount.

Any withdrawals or switches will also reduce how much you can contribute each year, please see ‘Withdrawals and your annual investment limit’ on page 14.

Your protected income base is $320,000 and your protected account balance is $340,000. You have already received your protected income payments for the year.

Your protected income base is $400,000, and your protected account balance is $340,000. You have already received your protected income payments for the year.

Your protected account balance is $380,000.

You withdraw a further $34,000, which reduces both your protected account balance and protected income base by $34,000.

You withdraw a further $34,000, which reduces your protected account balance by $34,000.

When you receive the protected income payment, your:•protected income base remains the

same at $400,000, and•protected account balance is

$380,000 – $40,000 = $340,000.

Therefore your: •protected income base is

$320,000 – $34,000 = $286,000. This means your income payments will now be calculated on your reduced protected income base, and

•protected account balance is $340,000 – $34,000 = $306,000.

The amount your protected income base is reduced by is calculated as:•dividing your withdrawal amount by your

protected account balance $34,000 / $340,000 = 10%, then

•proportionally reducing your protected income base by this percentage, ie » $400,000 x 10% = $40,000 » $400,000 – $40,000 = $360,000.

This means your protected income payments will now be calculated on your reduced protected income base.

If you’re in pensionYour protected income payments won’t decrease your protected income base, but your protected account balance will reduce by the amount of your protected income payments.

You may also withdraw more than this, but this may reduce your protected income base by a higher amount than the withdrawal. The more you withdraw, the greater the impact on your protected income base and hence your protected income payments.

Examples of how this works are shown below.

Investment protection – the details

Protection you can depend on.

How much can you protect?Your minimum initial investment amount must be $30,000, and the maximum is $2 million. If you wish to protect more than this, please contact us.

Minimum balanceYour account balance must be positive in order to maintain the protection to cover any product or regulatory obligations. If you withdraw your entire account balance, this may cancel your protection.

If you’re in Protected Income, your protected income payments will be paid to your MLC Cash Fund when your protected account balance has reduced to $200. When your protected account balance is less than $200, we may transfer this amount to a different investment option.

How is your initial investment amount calculated?Starting your protection in superYour initial investment amount is made up of all transactions within your protected account balance in the first 90 days after you make your first investment. That is, contributions and switches, less any withdrawals.

Starting your protection in pensionYour initial investment amount is your first investment amount. After making your initial investment you can’t add to your protection.

What investment option can you choose for your protection?You can choose one of the following investment options for your protection in the table below.

If you only wish to protect some of your super or pension account, then your account balance without protection must be invested in a different investment option to your protected account balance.

When is your investment anniversary?Your investment anniversary is the day your first investment is made into your protected account balance. You need to make your first investment within 90 days of your application being received.

If you’re in Protected Income your anniversary date will change when you start your term.

MLC MasterKey Super & Pension Fundamentals Investment Protection Guide Page 14

Withdrawals while you’re in super will reduce your annual investment limit in the same proportion as the reduction of your protected account balance

When you withdraw in super

Your protected account balance is $200,000 and your annual investment limit is $40,000.You withdraw $50,000, which reduces your protected account balance by $50,000. The amount your annual investment limit is reduced by is calculated as:•dividing your withdrawal amount by your protected account balance

$50,000 / $200,000 = 25%, then•proportionally reducing your annual investment limit by this percentage, ie

$40,000 x 25% = $10,000$40,000 – $10,000 = $30,000.

Your new annual investment limit is $30,000.

When will your protection end?Your protection will end when:

• you don’t make an investment into your protected account in the first 90 days of submitting your application

• your initial investment amount into your protected account is less than $30,000

• your term ends

• you transition from pension back to super (unless you have a transition to retirement pension with Protected Capital)

• your protected capital value or protected income base is less than $1,000 due to withdrawals you make

• you withdraw all your protected account balance

• you stop it

• you die. If you’ve chosen the spouse benefit option then your spouse will receive the protected payments.

When your protection ends, your account balance will remain in the investment option you’ve chosen.

If your protection has been cancelled, you can’t apply for Investment Protection with MLC for 6 months.

TaxPlease refer to the PDS for general information on how your super and pension accounts are taxed. For more information on how tax is applied to your protection payment, please refer to the How to Guide on mlc.com.au

Your investment strategy15. I instruct the Trustee to allocate 100% of my initial and future contributions and rollovers to the MLC Cash Fund or as specified

in the table below.

In giving this instruction I have considered the information disclosed in the Investment Menu and Investment Protection Guide, if applicable, and determined that the investment option is appropriate for me.

• Initial investment – shows how you want your initial contributions and/or rollovers(s) allocated.

•Ongoing investment – shows how you want your regular and one-off contributions allocated in the future. Please note, if you have Protected Capital you may only invest future contributions to your investment option if you have elected to pay for it.

•Fee draw down order – shows the investment option(s) from which your fees are to be deducted. Please number the investment option(s) in order of preference (1, 2, 3 etc). If this column is left blank, fees will be deducted pro rata on the value of each option. Your Protection fees are deducted pro rata from your protected account balance. Some fees may impact your Investment Protection such as Adviser service fees. To avoid this, it is recommended that your chosen investment option with Investment Protection be placed last in your fee draw down sequence.

1 You can only invest up to 70% of your super account balance and you can’t invest once you reach age 90.

Information on nominating a beneficiary

Types of nominations

A non-lapsing binding nomination which is binding on the Trustee.

Selecting this nomination will make sure your account balance is paid as you have directed as long as the nomination is and remains valid. This nomination stands even when your personal circumstances change such as getting married, having children, or any other life-changing event occurs. It is therefore, very important to regularly review your nomination to make sure it reflects your current personal circumstances.

A non-binding nomination subject to Trustee discretion.

The Trustee will decide who receives your account balance, taking into consideration your preferred beneficiaries and your current circumstances at the date of your death.

No nomination.

The Trustee will decide who receives your account balance.

Spouse benefit

If you’ve opted for a spouse benefit as part of your Protected Income, your protected income payments will continue to be paid to your spouse upon your death. Your term will begin when each of you are over preservation age (currently 55 years) or older.You should read and understand the information provided in the Investment Protection Guide on spouse benefit available on mlc.com.au

Who can you nominate?Under superannuation law, you can nominate:

Individuals

• your spouse or de-facto spouse, including same sex partners

• children including step and adopted children, children of your spouse and other children within the meaning of the Family Law Act 1975

• individuals who are financially dependent on you at the time of your death

• someone in an interdependency relationship with you at the time of your death

Legal representative (your estate)

Your legal representative either the executor under your will or a person granted letters of administration for your estate if you die without having left a valid will.

Why can’t you nominate other family members or friends?The law only allows you to nominate individuals who are financially dependent on you or have an interdependency relationship with you at the time of your death. However, you can choose to have your benefit paid to your estate where you can nominate your friends and/or other family members in your will to receive these funds.

What is a financial dependant?Someone who is financially dependent upon you at the time of your death.

The definition of a dependant under superannuation legislation may be different to the definition which is used for Tax purposes. For more information on estate planning we recommend you speak with your financial or legal adviser.

What is an interdependent relationship?This is a close personal relationship between two people who live together, where one or both of them provide for the financial and domestic support and personal care of the other. This type of relationship may still exist if there is a close personal relationship but the other requirements aren’t satisfied because of some physical, intellectual or psychiatric disability.

Where can you check your beneficiary nomination?Your beneficiary nomination details will be confirmed each year in your Annual Statement and can be viewed online at any time on mlc.com.au

TaxationThe taxation rules relating to death benefits are complex and different taxation treatments may apply depending on the beneficiary nomination in place. Please seek advice from your tax adviser.

Your investment strategy

25. I instruct the Trustee to allocate 100% of my pension account balance, and set my draw down payments from, the MLC Cash Fund or as specified in the table below.

In giving this instruction I have considered the information disclosed in the Investment Menu and Investment Protection Guide, if applicable, and determined that the investment option is appropriate for me.

• Initial investment – shows how you want your initial investment(s) allocated.

•Draw down strategy for income payments – shows the proportion (%) of your income to be deducted from each investment option.

•Draw down sequence for income payments – shows the order of your income to be deducted from each investment option.

•Draw down sequence for fees – shows how your fees are to be deducted. Please number the investment option(s) in order of preference (1, 2, 3 etc). If this column is left blank, fees will be deducted pro rata from your protected account balance. Your Protection fees are deducted from your protected account balance. Some fees may impact your investment protection such as Adviser service fees. To avoid this, it is recommended that your chosen investment option with Investment Protection be placed last in your fee draw down sequence.

•Pro rata – if no draw down strategy is nominated your income payments will be deducted pro rata on the value of each investment option in your account.

Information on nominating a beneficiary

Types of nominationsA non-lapsing binding nomination which is binding on the Trustee.

Selecting this nomination will make sure your account balance is paid as you have directed as long as the nomination is and remains valid. This nomination stands even when your personal circumstances change such as getting married, having children, or any other life-changing event occurs. It is therefore, very important to regularly review your nomination to make sure it reflects your current personal circumstances.

A non-binding nomination subject to Trustee discretion.

The Trustee will decide who receives your account balance, taking into consideration your preferred beneficiaries and your current circumstances at the date of your death.

No nomination.

The Trustee will decide who receives your account balance.

A reversionary nomination.

Your pension payments continue to be paid to your nominated beneficiary.

Spouse benefit

If you’ve opted for a spouse benefit as part of your Protected Income, your protected income payments will continue to be paid to your spouse upon your death. Your term will begin when each of you are over preservation age (currently 55 years) or older. You should read and understand the information provided in the Investment Protection Guide on spouse benefit available on mlc.com.au

Who can you nominate?Under superannuation law, you can nominate:

Individuals

• your spouse or de-facto spouse, including same sex partners

• children including step and adopted children, children of your spouse and other children within the meaning of the Family Law Act 1975

• individuals who are financially dependent on you at the time of your death

• someone in an interdependency relationship with you at the time of your death

Legal representative (your estate)

Your legal representative either the executor under your will or a person granted letters of administration for your estate if you die without having left a valid will.

Why can’t you nominate other family members or friends?The law only allows you to nominate individuals who are financially dependent on you or have an interdependency relationship with you at the time of your death. However, you can choose to have your benefit paid to your estate where you can nominate your friends and/or other family members in your will to receive these funds.

What is a financial dependant?Someone who is financially dependent upon you at the time of your death.

The definition of a dependant under superannuation legislation may be different to the definition which is used for Tax purposes. For more information on estate planning we recommend you speak with your financial or legal adviser.

What is an interdependent relationship?This is a close personal relationship between two people who live together, where one or both of them provide for the financial and domestic support and personal care of the other. This type of relationship may still exist if there is a close personal relationship but the other requirements aren’t satisfied because of some physical, intellectual or psychiatric disability.

Where can you check your beneficiary nomination?Your beneficiary nomination details will be confirmed each year in your Annual Statement and can be viewed online at any time on mlc.com.au

TaxationThe taxation rules relating to death benefits are complex and different taxation treatments may apply depending on the beneficiary nomination in place. Please seek advice from your tax adviser.

PRIVACY OF INFORMATION

The Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 authorises the Tax Office to request information in this declaration. The information will help the Tax Office administer the laws relating to tax, and help other government agencies administer other legislation covering Australian Government benefits and superannuation. All information the Tax Office collects, including personal information, is treated as confidential and is protected by the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 and the Privacy Act 1988.

The Tax Office may give this information to other government agencies as authorised by the tax laws, for example, Australian Government agencies that administer laws relevant to your particular situation. Depending on your situation, these agencies could include Centrelink, the Australian Federal Police, the Child Support Agency, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, the Department of Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs, the Department of Family and Community Services and the Department of Education, Science and Training.

Section 202C of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936 authorises the Tax Office to request quotation of your TFN on this declaration for the purposes of administering tax laws. It is not an offence not to quote your TFN, but there may be consequences if you do not, for example, you may have extra tax withheld.

Information on nominating a beneficiary

Types of nominations

A non-lapsing binding nomination which is binding on the Trustee.

Selecting this nomination will make sure your account balance is paid as you have directed as long as the nomination is and remains valid. This nomination stands even when your personal circumstances change such as getting married, having children, or any other life-changing event occurs. It is therefore, very important to regularly review your nomination to make sure it reflects your current personal circumstances.

A non-binding nomination subject to Trustee discretion.

The Trustee will decide who receives your account balance, taking into consideration your preferred beneficiaries and your current circumstances at the date of your death.

No nomination.

The Trustee will decide who receives your account balance.

Who can you nominate?Under superannuation law, you can nominate:

Individuals

• your spouse or de-facto spouse, including same sex partners

• children including step and adopted children, children of your spouse and other children within the meaning of the Family Law Act 1975

• individuals who are financially dependent on you at the time of your death

• someone in an interdependency relationship with you at the time of your death

Legal representative (your estate)

Your legal representative either the executor under your will or a person granted letters of administration for your estate if you die without having left a valid will.

Why can’t you nominate other family members or friends?The law only allows you to nominate individuals who are financially dependent on you or have an interdependency relationship with you at the time of your death. However, you can choose to have your benefit paid to your estate where you can nominate your friends and/or other family members in your will to receive these funds.

What is a financial dependant?Someone who is financially dependent upon you at the time of your death.

The definition of a dependant under superannuation legislation may be different to the definition which is used for Tax purposes. For more information on estate planning we recommend you speak with your financial or legal adviser.

What is an interdependent relationship?This is a close personal relationship between two people who live together, where one or both of them provide for the financial and domestic support and personal care of the other. This type of relationship may still exist if there is a close personal relationship but the other requirements aren’t satisfied because of some physical, intellectual or psychiatric disability.

Where can you check your beneficiary nomination?Your beneficiary nomination details will be confirmed each year in your Annual Statement and can be viewed online at any time on mlc.com.au

TaxationThe taxation rules relating to death benefits are complex and different taxation treatments may apply depending on the beneficiary nomination in place. Please seek advise from your tax adviser.
