Transfer planning in superannuation: proposed enhancements

This page contains APRA's consultation on proposed enhancements to the prudential framework to strengthen transfer planning in superannuation.

November 2022


On 10 November 2022, APRA released a discussion paper seeking feedback from superannuation trustees and other industry stakeholders on a series of measures to enhance planning by superannuation trustees in the event they need to transfer members out of – or into – their fund. 
The prudential framework enhancements include new requirements for trustees to be prepared for a transfer of members and an update of the transfer planning guidance contained in Prudential Practice Guide SPG 227 Successor Fund Transfers and Wind-ups to strengthen and simplify the guidance. 
This consultation is open until 10 March 2023.

Media release: APRA moves to strengthen transfer planning in superannuation.
