Commonwealth Superannuation

During the 1960s, 70s, 80s and 90s, many current and former employees of the Commonwealth, and Commonwealth statutory authorities, were wrongly told that they were not eligible to join one of the Commonwealth superannuation schemes. Snedden Hall & Gallop has helped many clients obtain compensation for periods of lost membership of Commonwealth superannuation. We remain the only law firm in Australia to successfully litigate claims of this type against the Commonwealth, and further information on the Cornwell v Commonwealth case can be found here.

Were you misled about eligibility to join a Commonwealth superannuation scheme?

Time limits may apply to your potential claim. It is important to seek our specialist advice as soon as possible about any possible entitlements.



To make it easier for you to contact us and commence the process of assessing your eligibility for a claim, we have created two online surveys: a general form for all former Australian government employees, and a specific form for former TAA employees.

You can access the enquiry forms by clicking on the links on the right hand side of this screen.
