Denial of Commonwealth Superannuation Update: part 3

Recent changes in the law may affect your potential claim for superannuation entitlements. Because time limits are important, Snedden Hall & Gallop is running a seminar to inform former and current employees of the Commonwealth government and Commonwealth statutory authorities who were denied membership of the Commonwealth superannuation schemes about current issues. This is the third in our 3 part blog series.

The issues we cover are:

Part 1

  • Progress of Claims and Court Decisions
  • Former employees of Trans Australia Airlines

Part 2

  • Time Limits
  • “Act of Grace” Payments

Here, in Part 3:

  • What you need to do
  • Upcoming Seminar

What you need to do

We encourage you to share this update with your work colleagues who may be affected by these types of circumstances. There are many government employees and former government employees who will be significantly disadvantaged upon retirement as a result of being told that they could not join what were then very generous and positive superannuation schemes for government employees.

One of the major hurdles faced by all potential claimants is the time limit applying to claims of this nature. We discussed this crucial issue in Part 2.

Snedden Hall & Gallop will consider claims on a no-win, no-fee basis and advise of potential entitlements. Here is a form which will help us to determine if you have a claim. 

Upcoming Superannuation Entitlement Seminar

If you are a current or former employee of the Commonwealth government or Commonwealth statutory authorities, you are invited to a seminar aimed at updating those who were denied membership of the Commonwealth superannuation schemes.

Who should attend? Former and current employees of the Commonwealth government and Commonwealth statutory authorities with employment covering the 1960s, '70s, '80s and 90s. We encourage you to bring a friend who has similar circumstances.

What we will cover. We will:

  • Discuss key facts affecting claims
  • Explain time limits
  • Clarify misconceptions
  • Explain fees
  • Discuss some recent scenarios
