The Government’s Your Future, Your Super (YFYS) package – announced in the 2020-21 Budget – is a comprehensive package of reforms designed to make sure the superannuation system delivers better outcomes for members.

  • Outline the methodology for the annual performance test and re-opening test, as well as requirements for notifications to members.
  • Prescribe the definition of a ‘stapled fund’, including tie-breaker rules for determining which fund is to be an employee’s stapled fund where they have multiple existing funds.
  • Specify the formulas as a basis for ranking products on the YourSuper comparison tool.
  • Set out the manner in which the portfolio holdings disclosures are organised.
  • Prescribe the information that must be included with the notice of an Annual Members’ Meeting.
  • Further strengthen the prohibition on funds offering inducements to employers.
