What employers need to know about stapling
Introduced as part of the Your Future, Your Super (YFYS) reform, stapling came into effect on 1 November 2021.
Under stapling legislation, employees will keep their same super account (if they have one) when they change jobs, unless they nominate a preferred fund.
If a preferred fund is not nominated, employers are now obligated to check if their employee has an existing ‘stapled’ fund as part of the onboarding process.
Your Future, Your Super (YFYS)
The Your Future, Your Super (YFYS) reform came into law on 22 June 2021.
The focus of this reform is on improving super outcomes for members, which saw the introduction of the Single Default Account (otherwise known as stapling), and as a result, a new employer obligation.
The other key measures of YFYS are:
- Addressing underperformance in superannuation
- Improving accountability and member outcomes
