Legislation providing for default superannuation products called ‘MySuper’ was enacted in 2012. Since 1 January 2014, only funds offering a MySuper product have been eligible to receive default superannuation contributions relating to new employees.
From 1 July 2017, all member accounts in default investment options will be required to be invested in MySuper products.
The MySuper changes were aimed at providing a simple, cost-effective, balanced product for the vast majority of Australian workers who are invested in the default option of their current fund.
