The Northern Territory Police Supplementary Benefit Scheme (NTPSBS) was established under the Northern Territory Police Supplementary Benefit Scheme Trust Deed dated 15 June 1984. It closed to new members on 1 January 1988. The scheme supplements the pension payable from the Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme (CSS) for eligible members of the Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services.
Members contribute 1 per cent of salary into their NTPSBS account. The NTPSBS is a defined benefit superannuation scheme that pays qualifying members either a lifetime-indexed pension or a commuted lump sum amount or, alternatively, a refund of contributions for members who do not qualify for a pension/lump sum. The NTPSBS pension commences when the CSS pension begins. NTPSBS Annual Reports can be accessed at the DTF Annual Reports page.
