ASG’s Supplementary Education Program (SEP) lets you put aside funds towards your child’s secondary and post-secondary education. SEP puts you in control with the flexibility to increase or decrease your contributions, and is a great option if you have specific education goals in mind, such as private schooling.

With secondary and post-secondary options, SEP allows you to receive benefits at a time that suits you.

What you need to know

  • Enrolment is open to any child under eight years of age for the secondary option, and 10 years of age for the post-secondary option.
  • Make regular contributions from as low as $15.62 per week.
  • Make monthly, quarterly or half-yearly or annual payments, pay a lump sum, or choose to combine regular and lump sum payments.
  • Choose when you’d like your contributions to be returned to you.

Over the past 25 years, ASG has played a key role in supporting New Zealand families plan and save for the cost of education.  Over this time, we have supported the education journey of many New Zealand families and we currently have over 10,000 children enrolled in our New Zealand scholarship plans.

ASG has enjoyed supporting New Zealand families for many years, however given the growing cost of marketing and distributing our products and after a comprehensive review of our operations, we have made the decision to discontinue distributing our scholarship plans to the New Zealand market.  As such, we will not be accepting any new members in our New Zealand scholarship plans.  Importantly, we will continue to support you and all our existing New Zealand members and we do not foresee any impact on your benefit entitlements, or other rights, as current members of our funds.  There is no change to your ability to contribute to current funds and ASG will continue to provide ongoing service and support to assist you through our Customer Care Centre, that supports both our Australian and New Zealand members.  The only change is that new and existing members will not be able enrol in any further New Zealand scholarship plans.

ASG is in a sound financial position and this decision will assist in ensuring that ASG maintains that healthy position into the future. 

We thank you for your continued support and we look forward to supporting your family’s education journey and honouring our obligations under the New Zealand scholarship plans for many years to come.
