The Government is seeking stakeholder views on 2 draft proposals to allow victims and survivors of child sexual abuse to access the superannuation of their offender for unpaid compensation orders. These proposals seek to support victims and survivors in accessing redress by preventing child sexual abuse offenders from shielding their assets in the superannuation system.
- The first proposal would allow victims and survivors to release ‘additional’ contributions from an offender or spouse’s superannuation to satisfy an unpaid compensation order.
- The second proposal aims to improve transparency and reduce the cost and complexity of pursuing compensation by providing visibility of superannuation accounts to ascertain the value of the ‘additional’ contributions made by an offender.
