Super funds charge a multitude of fees in connection with the administration and management of your retirement savings. The Royal Commission has shown that some funds are charging much higher fees than are necessary to administer the fund. That’s why the Get Your Super Campaign is focused on uncompetitive fees charged by retail and bank-owned super funds.
We have commenced the second class action in our Get Your Super Back campaign, against AMP. The class action alleges that AMP paid too much to related entities for administration services, resulting in excessive fees on members’ superannuation accounts.
The class action also includes claims where member’s funds were held in cash-only investment options and members received interest rates lower than what a reasonable and diligent trustee could have obtained on the open market.
Get Your Super Back
Around one third of Australian adults are members of big bank-owned superannuation funds. The royal commission revealed how these bank-owned funds may have been cheating their own members of the best possible savings outcomes. We are launching a series of class actions against the funds we allege are liable for misconduct, and you and millions of other Australians could be eligible to join.

Other class actions
Slater and Gordon have launched two class actions as part of our Get Your Super Back campaign, against Colonial First State and AMP. But we won't stop there. We plan to launch a series of class actions against big bank-owned super funds that we allege have rorted the system to boost their own profits instead of looking after members.
