Benefits with your employer
Retirement benefits for employees Open

FundsAtWork has a range of carefully selected investment portfolios, asset managers and asset classes to match each employee's investment objectives.

Employers participating in the FundsAtWork Umbrella Funds select the initial default product option and investment portfolio.

FundsAtWork clients can use our retirement calculator to find out if they're saving enough for retirement to meet their needs.

  • Narrator - follows Momentum's house view on investments and will automatically change your investment portfolio according to your particular life stage.
  • Provider - offers a range of investment portfolios targeting inflation plus 3% to inflation plus 7%, a range of guaranteed portfolios as well as the life stage solution.
  • Entrepreneur - is suitable if you want to structure a specific and unique investment profile using a selection of unit trusts and Momentum portfolios.
Insurance benefits Open

People don't always understand the value of financial advice and the benefit of having enough insurance cover. Employer sponsored benefits are often the only source of insurance cover that an individual has.

FundsAtWork insurance options provide the necessary individual cover which aims to reduce or eliminate the impact of life unfavorable events, i.e. provides protection and cover in case of member death, disability or dread disease.

The employer also reduces their business vulnerability by minimising the level of financial obligations should the unforeseen happen to an employee.

FundsAtWork partners with financial advisers to assist employers to help their employees in choosing the appropriate cover for their individual needs.

Use our insurance calculators to find out if your clients have enough death and disability cover.

Preservation for employees who change employers Open

What options do employees have if you leave your employment due to resignation, retrenchment or dismissal?

  • We encourage members to always save their retirement saving to avoid the negative impact on their lifestyle expectations at retirement.

Preservation funds product options:

  • Members will be placed in the same product option and investment portfolios as in the Umbrella Funds.

Family Protector benefits:

  • If members transfer their retirement benefits from the Umbrella Funds, they can keep the Family Protector BASE funeral benefit at no monthly fee.

Automatic preservation:

  • FundsAtWork Umbrella Funds' members have the option to automatically save their pension money, meaning that the balance in their retirement savings account will not be disinvested from the market. The savings will stay invested without losing growth.
  • Employer can also notify us of the member's wish to automatically preserve their retirement benefit on the Employer Portal.
