What does ‘successor fund transfer’ (SFT) mean?

A successor fund transfer (SFT) is a transfer of the members in one superannuation fund to another different fund (successor fund) without the need for individual members to give their consent.
For the fund to be legally allowed to transfer member accounts by an SFT, members must receive equivalent rights in the new fund and, overall, the transfer must be in the best interests of members.

Do I need to do anything to prepare for the SFT?

No, you don’t need to do anything. BOC Super will transfer your member account for you.

What happens after the transfer?

BOC Super will send you a final exit statement by 30 November 2021. You’ll also receive an Equip welcome letter which contains detailed information about your new member account and the additional product features and services available to you.
