Significant event notices

LGIAsuper has a duty to let members know about any major (material) change to the fund through a significant event notice (SEN).

Material changes include any changes that may impact on your retirement savings, including (but not limited to):

  • increases to fees or charges
  • changes to insurance arrangements or benefits

Depending on the timing of the change and our members' communication preferences, a significant event notice may be communicated through our member newsletter (SuperNews), a letter or an email.

LGIAsuper’s recent significant event notices

Notice date Change Impact of the change Notice to members
13 Sep 2016 Proposed legislative changes to LGIAsuper's membership rules In July 2016 the Queensland Government announced legislative changes that, once passed, will allow LGIAsuper to welcome new members outside of Queensland local government.

Queensland local government employees will be offered Choice of Fund while LGIAsuper will remain the default super fund for Queensland local government.

The change will not impact the fees members pay, how their super is invested or LGIAsuper's structure.
