    Responding to your enquiry

    When you send an email to one of our mailboxes, we will reply with an acknowledgement. It will include the team's service level agreement (SLA) for timeframes in resolving enquiries (in development for specialist contact points). If needed, the mailbox will negotiate with downstream stakeholders to work towards resolution within the SLA's timeframe. They will also provide a progress update if the enquiry is unresolved within the expected timeframe.

    The area actioning the enquiry will send the final advice directly to you.

    If you need further clarification, send a follow-up email to the mailbox you received the response from.

    Re-escalating an issue

    Allow enough time for us to resolve the issue (in line with the SLA in your acknowledgement reply) before you re-escalate an issue.

    If you need to re-contact a mailbox:

    • send a follow-up email to the mailbox you originally contacted
    • copy in (CC) the original mailbox if you are escalating to another contact point.

    Note: No reply will be provided where a mailbox is CC'd into an email.

    Common queries

    Received a payment but not a rollover message

    In most cases, funds should receive the payments or messages (or both) on the same day. If a fund does not receive a corresponding message on the same day:

    • where there is a technical issue and a message couldn't be sent, we'll contact the fund to advise
    • if there's a delay with a corresponding message, all attempts will be made to get the message to the fund within seven business days of the date on which the fund received the payment.

    Funds should follow up with SuperCRT about the delayed message if they haven't heard from us after more than seven business days after receiving a payment. Any enquiries before that time will receive a response that the matter is still under investigation.

    Payments from us might also relate to income tax, integrated client account or other accounts. So we encourage you, or an authorised contact or tax agent, to check the details of the payment in the Business Portal before making an enquiry to SuperCRT.

    No outcome response following a rollover or contribution lodgment

    The course of action depends on whether the fund’s gateway got a technical receipt after lodgment:

    • if a technical receipt was not received, the gateway provider should resend the message
    • if a technical receipt was received, email SuperCRT with details of the technical receipt.

    No super contribution showing on myGov

    The fund should check:

    • the amounts reported for the member on the Business Portal
    • if the contribution is not on the portal, check with their gateway that the necessary technical receipts and business responses (where relevant) have been received.

    If these have not been received, their gateway should follow-up with the DPO.

    If everything appears correct in the portal and at the fund’s gateway, the fund should email SuperCRT.
