  • Compassionate release of super approval notification update

    On 23 September 2021, the ATO will be deploying an update to the Compassionate release of super (CRS) approval notifications sent to superfunds and administrators via the Online services for business portal.

    This update will see the Unique Superannuation Identifier (USI) of the nominated superfund included in the PDF file name. This update has been made in response to your feedback to include the USI as this would make it easier for superfunds and administrators to administer.

    All PDFs issued by the ATO from 24 September 2021 should display the file as below, depending on the availability of USIs in ATO systems:

    • USI available – CRS_[betid]_[usi).pdf
    • USI not available – CRS_[betid]_[0).pdf

    This update should assist administrators to more easily identify the recipient superfund without having to download and view each individual PDF.

    Next steps:

    The ATO will continue testing the change to ensure no issues arise after deployment.

    A further Super news article will be published mid-September 2021 with additional information for superfunds and administrators.

    If you have further enquiries on this matter, lodge a request using the Super Enquiry Service.
