Link Group has been awarded a contract by Aware Super to provide defined benefit administration to former Victorian Independent School Superannuation Fund (VISSF) members.
The completion of Aware Super and VISSF’s merger was announced in December and followed the completion of the successor fund transfer.
Aware Super’s executive consultant corporate development, Michael Dundon, who is leading the fund’s merger team, said the move to appoint Link Group would support a seamless transition for VISSF defined benefit members.
“We’ve retained Link Group to ensure customer experience across our platform and communications is simple and engaging for all former VISSF defined benefit members and the transition to Aware Super is as smooth as possible,” he said.
“This new relationship with Link Group will complement the significant project that is currently underway to in-source our broader member administration. This project is expected to be delivered in stages over the coming 18 months.”
