  • SuperMatch2

    SuperMatch2 provides you with information that will help you to consolidate accounts for your members.

    SuperMatch2 responds to requests from you via a Strategic Web Service (SWS) for either single or batch requests.


    The SuperMatch2 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 SuperMatch2 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 SuperMatch2 use of service letter sent to trustees on 18 October 2016.

    You can't integrate SuperMatch2 with other services, such as SuperTICK. Combining these services ensures that SuperMatch2 always returns a successful result. This increases the risk of fraud as you don’t need to verify an individual’s TFN before using SuperMatch2.

    What does the SuperMatch2 service offer?

    SuperMatch2 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.
