Appeals against Superannuation Complaints Tribunal decisions, on questions of law only, can be lodged with the Federal Court.

The tribunal may also refer questions of law directly to the Federal Court.

In practice, there are few appeals, and most are lodged by trustees or insurers.

Time limits

Appeals must be lodged within 28 days of receiving written notice of the decision. The Federal Court may extend this time.

Appeals  :  Last Revised: Fri Jul 25th 2014
