Superannuation (Unclaimed Money and Lost Members) Act 1999

PART 3A - PAYMENT OF UNCLAIMED SUPERANNUATION OF FORMER TEMPORARY RESIDENTS  

Division 1 - Preliminary  

SECTION 20A   20A   SIMPLIFIED OUTLINE  


The following is a simplified outline of this Part:

The Commissioner must give the superannuation provider for a fund a notice if the Commissioner is satisfied that a former temporary resident has a superannuation interest in the fund.

If the Commissioner gives such a notice, the superannuation provider must:

  • (a) give the Commissioner a statement about the interest by the next date set for the purpose by the Commissioner; and
  • (b) pay the Commissioner the amount that would have been payable from the fund to the person if the person had requested payment in connection with his or her departure from Australia, reduced by amounts already payable in respect of the person.
  • On payment, the superannuation provider ceases to be liable for the amount paid.

    The person can claim the amount (and interest, in some cases) from the Commissioner.
