Tax file number

Tax file number

You can choose to provide us your tax file number (TFN).

There are reasons why you may wish to do so. For instance, you may avoid:

  • paying extra tax on your contributions, benefit payments and rollovers
  • having certain contribution types disallowed
  • any delay in the payment of benefits and transfer amounts.

It may also be easier for you to track multiple super accounts you hold.

If you do provide your TFN, we must confirm the number is yours and is correct. TFNs are validated using the Australian Taxation Office’s records (the SuperTICK validation service). We must validate your TFN before your benefit can be paid to you or rolled to another fund.
