Make a Claim
There are two ways you can make a claim. Either come into the office and complete the necessary paperwork or download it from the web site, complete the paperwork and mail the originals to ReddiFund. Once all the necessary paperwork is completed correctly the funds will be deposited into your nominated bank account, in some instances this can be within 48 hours. Every claim must be accompanied by the following documents:
- Your 9 digit Tax File number
- Your bank account details, accompanied by a bank statement
- Separation Certificate or Letter of Termination from your last employer (we will not be able to process your claim until we receive written notification of your termination date from your last employer within the building and construction industry)
- Certified copy of a current Government Issued Photo ID (for example Drivers Licence, Passport)
- Statutory Declaration and your signature witnessed by an authorised witness.
All forms must be completed correctly, otherwise we will be unable to process the claim. Please contact our office if you need assistance with completing the forms.
Below are some of the forms you may need to fill in before you make a claim:
You will be required to complete a Statutory Declaration form to confirm when you have ceased working in the building and construction industry. The form needs to be witnessed by an authorised witness.
Bank Details and Tax File Number Form
You’ll need to let us know your tax file number if you want 32 cents in the dollar deducted rather than 47 cents by filling in a Bank Details and TFN form. Do not use an Australian Business Number (ABN) as we are required to deduct the maximum marginal rate of tax if no tax file number is quoted. This at present is 47 cents in the dollar.
Change of Address Form
If you’ve changed address from when you became a member then let us know so you don’t miss anything by completing a Change of Address form.
Employee Application Form
If you haven’t already completed an Employee Application form then you are not a member of the fund and therefore even though there may be funds held in your name you cannot access them until you complete the form and send it to us.
