How Do I Join?
You will automatically become a member of the fund when your employer submits your details and pays your first contribution.
We do have a Member Application Form, but it is not a requirement to complete this form to become a member as once you become a member you can update your details on BOBB (BERT Online Balances & Benefits). If you wish to complete this form please mail to BERT at PO Box 805 Spring Hill QLD 4004 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once payments have been received on your behalf, you will receive a welcome email or letter from BERT.
With its simple navigation and 24/7 access the BERT Online Balances & Benefits (BOBB) system will allow members to register an account, updated contact information, check their account balance and payment contributions online.
BOBB can be accessed via your PC, Laptop, iPad or Smartphone to help you with your enquiry at any time. Remember BOBB's your mate - Simply register today and make monitoring your BERT payments easy!
