Objectives of the Bill

The objectives of the Bill are to support the merger of QSuper and Sunsuper, 2 large Queensland based superannuation funds (the former of which was established by the Queensland Government to provide superannuation benefits for Queensland’s state public sector entities), by amending the Superannuation (State Public Sector) Act 1990 to:

  • retire the board of QSuper and provide for the superannuation scheme to be administered by a corporate trustee
  • provide for the scheme’s trust deed (the Superannuation (State Public Sector) Deed 1990), which sets out the scheme’s rules, to be moved out of legislation (through its conversion to a non-statutory instrument, in keeping with the new status of the trustee as a proprietary company)
  • ensure the merged superannuation entity continues to be based in Queensland
  • maintain public sector employees’ defined benefit protections within legislation
  • retain a statutory framework for state public sector employees’ superannuation contribution arrangements.
