MEDIA RELEASE

Tuesday 22 October 2019

AUSTRALIA'S SUPER SYSTEM WORLD CLASS

At the launch of the Melbourne Mercer Global Pension Index at the Financial Services Council (FSC) today, FSC CEO Sally Loane welcomed Australia's positioning as a world leader in superannuation.

"Ranking third behind the Netherlands and Denmark shows us the Australian superannuation system is strong but reinforces the need for more important policy reforms to ensure it continues to deliver high quality retirement outcomes," Ms Loane said.

"The implementation of outstanding reforms to our superannuation and retirement systems - including the recommendations of the Royal Commission and the Productivity Commission to ensure people need only default once into super - will ensure Australia's superannuation system continues to improve," Ms Loane said.

"We know Australia's world class superannuation system is being held back by outdated policy settings that create inefficiencies and erode retirement savings.

"We continue to urge the Government, and Parliament, to implement the recommendations of both the Royal Commission and Productivity Commission to reform default superannuation by introducing a 'default once' system.

"Creating a single default account for superannuation members, which they can take from job to job like their bank account or tax file number, is critical to end the creation of unintended duplicate accounts which currently erode the retirement savings of Australians.

"Decoupling superannuation from the industrial relations system is an essential reform to deliver a superannuation system that is fit for purpose in a changing economy and increasingly flexible work patterns, where the numbers of people with more than job is rising.

"The Report also highlights opportunities to improve the system for members at retirement, and should be closely considered as part of the Government's recently announced Retirement Incomes Review."
