Freedom of Choice, AMG Super and Equity Trustees Superannuation Limited have signed up to the Insurance Code of Conduct and have implemented a transition plan. See below the official statement:
Name of Trustee: Equity Trustees Superannuation Limited (ABN 50 055 641 757)
Name of Fund: Freedom of Choice, a division of AMG Super (ABN 30 099 320 583)
AMG Super has previously stated its intent to adopt the Insurance in Superannuation Voluntary Code of Practice (the Code). The Code had been scheduled to come into effect on 1 January 2022.
Since the development of the Code, the majority of the requirements have been overtaken by legislative and regulatory reforms. In addition, many of the elements of the Code have already been implemented by AMG Super to improve member experience.
On the 30th of June, the Code Owners announced that the Code will no longer be required to be implemented in its current form. It will instead be replaced by two guidance documents focussing on Claims Handling and Vulnerable Consumers. These documents have been jointly developed by the Code Owners. AMG Super will consider this guidance in our interactions with members.
The Trustee is committed to continuing the principles of the Code and will continue to implement the requirements to improve its members’ experience.
