Medical Assurance Society Retirement Savings Plan
Superannuation schemes are a special type of investment fund with their own legislation. MAS offers one such fund, called Retirement Savings Plan (RSP). To find out more, call us on 0800 800 627.

How does a super scheme work?

 

Super schemes usually invest in a variety of investments – from ‘income assets’ such as cash and fixed interest to ‘growth assets’ such as shares. You can make regular contributions to a super scheme and that money is pooled with other investors to create a single investment fund.

 

With a super scheme:

  • You have access to a wide range of investments that you probably wouldn’t have access to if you invested on your own.
  • Costs of investing are shared across investors.
  • RSP is a Portfolio Investment Entity (PIE), making it tax efficient.
  • You choose which type of investment you want to invest in.
  • Your savings are usually locked away until a certain time, or until you reach a certain age.
  • Your returns are taxed and the tax is taken out by your provider before you withdraw your money.
  • When it’s time to withdraw your savings you choose how your money is paid to you – in a lump sum or regular amounts.
  • You can access your money before the time is up if you suffer financial hardship.
  • If you die your money is paid to your estate.

More information

The Medical Assurance Society Retirement Savings Plan is a unitised investment fund. This means that contributions to the Plan are used to purchase units. The unit price will rise or fall in value according to changes in the value of the underlying investments.


The Plan became unitised on 1 April 2013. Prior to this an investment return was declared for each six monthly period ending 31 March or 30 September. For a full description of how unitised investments work as well as information about related changes effective from 1 April 2013, please see the Written Notice to Members or check out our Understanding Unitisation Frequently Asked Questions sheet.
