Summary

Amends 7 Acts in relation to Commonwealth civilian and Australian Defence Force superannuation schemes as a consequence of new legislative arrangements for splitting superannuation on marriage breakdown. The bill provides for a framework within each relevant superannuation scheme for dealing with an agreement made by separating parties or a Family Court order that provides for an amount of the member’s superannuation to be allocated and paid to the member’s former spouse.
