Benefits Calculator

The Benefit Calculator can be used to provide details of your retirement benefits based on your current or a hypothetical superannuation salary.

Please note that your superannuation salary is reviewed by Police Super once a year as at 31 March. In general terms, the review of salary takes into account salary received in a permanent position within SAPOL. A higher duties salary is not to be included for superannuation contribution purposes.

If you are promoted outside of the review date and wish to have your superannuation salary updated please contact Police Super to advise the details of your change in salary.

The Benefit Calculator can be accessed via the Member Login facility.
