SuperStream standard

The SuperStream standard enables superannuation payments and data to be sent from employers to superannuation funds and between super funds and the ATO in a standard electronic format. SuperStream makes superannuation contributions and rollovers quicker, easier and more efficient.

The super industry and the ATO implemented an update to the SuperStream standard in November 2016 to introduce government transfers of unclaimed superannuation money (USM). From May 2017 we will also begin paying government contributions to super funds in accordance with the SuperStream standard.

By 2018, all rollovers and contributions between government and super funds will be electronic and in accordance with the SuperStream standard.
