Simple Superannuation Advice - Consultation Paper


Friday, 30 May 2008

Content ID:



On 5 February 2008, the Government announced the formation of the Financial Services Working Group (the Working Group) dedicated to looking at the key issues associated with financial services advice and disclosure.

The Working Group comprises senior officials from the Department of Treasury, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and the Department of Finance and Deregulation.

One issue the Working Group is examining is access to simple advice on choices within an existing superannuation account (intra-fund advice). We are seeking comments from industry and consumers about what regulatory and other steps Government could take to help more consumers get this advice.

You are invited to comment on the proposals in this Consultation Paper. The proposals are only tentative and are not our final views. We have also invited feedback about other issues surrounding the provision of simple superannuation advice discussed in this paper.

The Working Group requests comments and submissions by 15 July 2008 to assist in helping the Government to develop policy on advice in relation to existing superannuation investments.

Comments and submissions can be forwarded to the following address:

Financial Services Working Group
Langton Crescent
