Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Regulations 1994
The trustee of a regulated superannuation fund or approved deposit fund has the power, despite anything in the governing rules of the fund, to protect the benefits of members:
(a) to a greater degree than is required by this Part; or
(b) from an earlier date than is required by this Part;
if the trustee does so in a way that is consistent with this Part.
This regulation was amended with effect from 1 July 2013 as part of changes to the former member protection standards. A trustee might choose to continue to protect the benefits of all members from 1 July 2013 until when the trustee starts to enrol members in the MySuper product.
