In 2015, SuperPartners who have administered IRIS since its inception was bought by the Link Group, the largest provider of services in Australia’s superannuation fund administration industry. As a result of this change in ownership, SuperPartners’ client funds are being transitioned onto the systems and platforms operated by Australian Administration Services (AAS), a wholly owned subsidiary of the Link Group.
From September 2016, AAS will be the administrator for IRIS, which will see a number of enhancements to the administration of your IRIS pension account.
The main transition of the fund’s administration systems is currently scheduled to take place during the period from late afternoon on Thursday 22nd September to Tuesday 27th September 2016.
If you are due to receive a pension payment at the end of September 2016, your payment will be made one week earlier on or before the 23rd September 2016. No other pension payment dates will change.
