The ATO publishes information about super funds to assist employers access information required to send contributions using SuperStream.
This information includes unique superannuation identifiers (USI) which uniquely identifies an APRA fund and/or its superannuation products which an employee (member) contributes to.
You can obtain fund USI details from your service provider, the superannuation fund or via Super Fund Lookup.
The USI has replaced the superannuation product identification number (SPIN) which was previously used by some funds as a product identifier.
If you currently make employer contributions to funds using a SPIN you will need to obtain the USI this SPIN corresponds to.
You can find all USIs that correspond to SPINs by using the Fund USI and SPIN lookup table.
How to search the Fund USI and SPIN lookup table
To use the Fund USI and SPIN lookup table you will need to know the SPIN.
The Fund USI and SPIN lookup table includes the following information:
- fund ABN
- fund name
- SPIN (super product identifier number)
- USI (unique superannuation identifier)
- Product name
- Contribution restrictions.
By using the Fund USI and SPIN lookup table, employers will also be able to confirm if contribution restrictions exist for a product. If a product has a contribution restriction you are advised to contact the relevant fund before using this information.
Note: The Fund USI and SPIN lookup table only contains information for large APRA-regulated funds that have previously used a SPIN. It does not include information for super funds that have not used a SPIN, for example, all small APRA regulated funds and self-managed super funds are not included in this table.
