WA Super and Aware Super will be merging later this year and Aware Super will become the new fund for all WA Super members. Aware Super does not accept Kiwisaver transfers, and as such, WA Super will from 25 September 2020, no longer be accepting applications to transfer in from a Kiwisaver scheme. This is because we are unable to guarantee that the transfer of Kiwisaver funds to WA Super will be completed before the merger occurs.
Current transfer applications that are in progress will be completed, provided the funds are received from the Kiwisaver scheme before 13 November 2020. Funds received after this date may not be processed and may need to be returned to the KiwiSaver scheme.
All member accounts that contain funds from a Kiwisaver transfer will be transferred to Aware Super as part of the merger and they will continue to be treated as Kiwisaver funds by Aware Super, however, Aware Super will not be accepting any new Kiwisaver transfers.
