Family law

This information is for any member or person married to a member who is in the process of divorce or separation.

Request for super information

Super can be split for family law purposes. The first step in this process is to obtain information about the relevant member’s super in DFRDB; this information is used to calculate the value of a ‘superannuation interest’. This calculation is then used to assist court proceedings or to help prepare a family law agreement.

Is there a fee?

Yes, a fee of $150 for members and $165 ($150 plus GST) for non-members covers the cost of administrative work in preparing your superannuation information response. Your response will be made in accordance with Family Law legislation. You can pay this fee via cheque, money order or credit card (visa, mastercard or bankcard) when you provide your initial information request to DFRDB.

Please note a response cannot be prepared until DFRDB receives your payment.
