Superannuation

A study to develop criteria to assess the efficiency and competitiveness of the superannuation system, and an inquiry to develop alternative models for a formal competitive process for allocating default fund members to products.

The Commission is required to complete the study within nine months, and the inquiry within 18 months of receiving the Terms of Reference.

For both the study and the inquiry, the Commission is to consult widely, including conducting industry roundtables. The Commission is to provide both draft and final reports and the reports will be published.

Both tasks will inform a review of the efficiency and competitiveness of the superannuation system, which the Commission will be asked to undertake following the full implementation of the MySuper reforms (after 1 July 2017).

More detailed information can be found in the terms of reference.
