- You meet the eligibility criteria, and your employer has signed a deed to participate in UniSuper and made contributions on your behalf.
If you have not satisfied either of the above criteria, then it is unlikely that you are a Member and, therefore, you should not rely upon the information contained on your online account in any way.
