Virgin Money Super - Protecting Your Super Package Significant Event Notice

Notice date: May 2019

Nature of event or change:

Protecting Your Super Package Significant Event Notice
From 1 July 2019, legislative changes known as the Protecting Your Superannuation Package will come into effect.

Impact of the change:

  • No exit fee. From 1 July 2019 Virgin Money Super will no longer charge an exit fee when you withdraw funds from your super account.  This includes both full and partial withdrawals. This is across all funds, regardless of your account balance.
  • Fees will be capped at 3% p.a for low balances. From 1 July 2019 for all super accounts with a balance below $6,000, there will be a cap of 3% p.a on administration and investment fees to maximise your savings in retirement. Virgin Money Super customers currently receive one of the lowest fees in the market.
  • Insurance. On and after 1 July 2019, if a contribution has not been made to a super account for a continuous period of 16 months, and a person has not opted in to take out or maintain their insurance, the insurance benefits with the super fund will be ceased. 
  • Inactive low-balance accounts. From 1 July 2019, customers with inactive low-balance accounts below $6,000 will have their account transferred to the Australian Tax Office (ATO). An inactive low-balance account is defined as customer who hasn’t made a contribution to a particular super fund account for 16 months or more, and has an account of $6,000 or less. There are some other activities outside of contributions that do stop a customer being considered inactive including nominating or changing a beneficiary or opting in to retain insurance cover. Once a customer’s super is transferred to the ATO they will then attempt to merge the inactive amounts in the active super account (if there is one, and if the total of the combined balance is greater than $6,000). If the ATO can’t combine the balance automatically, it will remain with them until it is claimed.

If you are a customer with Virgin Money Super and have questions regarding how these changes might affect your super please call the Customer Care Team on 1300 652 770.
