On 1 April 2023, your employees who were members of BT Super were transferred to Mercer Super via a Successor Fund Transfer process. Following the successful transfer, Mercer Super now has the privilege of looking after the retirement savings of more than 850,000 Australians.
All employees have new Mercer Super member numbers, and a new Mercer Super Unique Superannuation Identifier (USI) number has now replaced the old BT Super USI.
It is important that you update your relevant systems with your employees’ new member numbers and USIs.
The information below is only relevant for employers who have been making contributions to the following two BT Super USIs: BTA0287AU and ASG0007AU.
The following diagram should help you determine which Unique Superannuation Identifier (USI) to use when making contributions on behalf of those employees who transferred from BT Super to Mercer Super on 1 April 2023.
There are three possible Mercer Super USIs, each corresponding to a different product. These are outlined in the table below.
Your employee(s) will be able to provide you with their account and USI details once they receive their welcome letter.
