Super funds use the SuperTICK service to validate an individual's tax file number (TFN) and accompanying identity information. These details are matched with the ATO client register.
SuperTICK also allows funds to validate member TFN details when processing rollover requests and initial registration information associated with SuperStream employer contributions.
Super funds could previously notify us of new and closed member accounts using the SuperTICK service. New and closed member account notifications are now reported to us through the Member Account Attribute Service (MAAS).
Once a super fund has transitioned to MAAS:
- they must report all new and closed accounts through the MAAS
- they can only use SuperTICK for TFN validation purposes.
You can obtain near real-time information about SuperTICK performance and availability, and planned system maintenance, from the ATO Superannuation DashboardExternal Link.
