  • SuperMatch

    SuperMatch provides you with information that will help you to consolidate accounts for your members.

    SuperMatch responds to your requests via a strategic web service for either single or batch requests.


    The SuperMatch terms and conditions prohibit integration into any external service you provide to your members or their representatives. You will lose your access if you breach this condition.

    Consideration to waive this constraint will be given to a trustee that elects to undertake the self-certification requirements in Schedule A of the terms and conditions (including the Addendum to the SuperMatch terms and conditions).

    The information contained in the Addendum will shortly be included in an update to the terms and conditions. The Addendum itself is based on the Review of SuperMatch use of service letter sent to trustees on 18 October 2016.

    You can't integrate SuperMatch with other services, such as SuperTICK. Combining these services ensures that SuperMatch always returns a successful result. This increases the risk of fraud, as you don’t need to verify an individual’s TFN before using SuperMatch.

    What does the SuperMatch service offer?

    SuperMatch offers a more streamlined approach. Use of the service signifies your acceptance of the terms and conditions about how you can use it. You don't need to sign a paper agreement, as was the case with SuperMatch.

    SuperMatch provides you with information about:

    • all member accounts, including new accounts reported to us via SuperTICK (but excluding closed accounts and those in pension phase)
    • all categories of ATO-held super, including  
      • super guarantee amounts we hold
      • amounts we hold in superannuation holding accounts (active and inactive)
      • super co-contribution amounts we hold
      • low income super contribution (LISC) amounts we hold
      • low income superannuation tax offset (LISTO) amounts we hold
      • unclaimed superannuation money amounts we hold (resident and former temporary resident).

    Input channel: Web-XBRL form via SWS/XBRL file via the file transfer portal function with no maximum limit.

    Consolidation/transfer: All types of ATO-held super will be transferred if requested.
