More about direct debits
Direct debit service agreementShow more
The following terms will apply to any direct debit that you or your employer set up to make contributions by a direct debit request.
Before you request a direct debit arrangement, you must confirm that the account you want to nominate can have direct debit (eg some passbook savings accounts cannot have direct debit). To find out if AMP Life can debit from your account, contact your financial institution.
Please double-check the account details you provide by comparing them with a recent statement from your financial institution.
This agreement allows AMP Life to deduct from your nominated account the amount and at the frequency you request or the amount modified annually due to CPI increases.
AMP Life will keep your financial details confidential.
However, it will disclose these details:
- if you give permission
- to settle a claim
- if AMP Life's financial institution needs information.
Note: If the due date is on a weekend or public holiday, your payment will be processed on the next business day.

Your responsibility to AMP LifeShow more
It is your responsibility to ensure that sufficient cleared funds are available in your account on the due date for payment to permit processing of the direct debit request.
If there are not sufficient funds and your financial institution dishonours the payment, any charges incurred by your financial institution and/or AMP Life may be debited from your account or recovered.
It is your responsibility to ensure that the authorisation given to AMP Life to draw on your financial institution account is consistent with the account authority or signing instructions held by your financial institution for that account.
You indemnify us against all losses, costs, damages and liabilities that we suffer as a result of you breaching this agreement, or providing us with an invalid or non-binding direct debit request addressed to us.

Ad-hoc direct debitShow more
You, or your employer can request us to transfer ad-hoc amounts from your, or your employer's bank account. Ad-hoc direct debits are not an automatic periodical deduction of a fixed amount. Debits from your or your employer's bank account will only occur each time you or your employer instruct us.
Suspension and recommencement of a direct debit for regular contributions for members aged 65 and overShow more
If you are aged 65 or over and you, your spouse or your employer have a direct arrangement for regular contributions, this arrangement will be suspended unless we are satisfied that you meet the relevant working requirement or no working requirement applies for that contribution type. If you later tell us that you satisfy the working requirement, we will recommence the direct debit arrangement.
We don't follow up your employer to make sure they are paying your contributions. If there is a discrepancy, then you should speak with your employer.
You should also check that the amount of government co-contributions, if any, is correct.
