How does my employer calculate compensation for the purposes of company contributions and match?

Your employer will calculate your theoretical compensation during the period of military service as follows:

  • Your employer will assume compensation at the same rate of pay you would have received had you not had military service; or
  • If your pay during your absence cannot be reasonably reconstructed (for example, you worked part-time or had periods of overtime), then your employer may establish compensation by reference to the 12 month period immediately before your military service. If you did not work for your employer for at least 12 months, your compensation history for the time you were employed would be used for the estimate.
