Determine the employee's account type (such as Accumulation, Defined Benefit, or State account)
For employees who contribute to QSuper, the type of account is defined by where the contribution payments are directed. For example, employees with a Defined Benefit account can also make voluntary contributions that are deposited into an Accumulation account. However, for the purpose of making a claim, your employee is considered to have a Defined Benefit account.

Wait for our final approval
