The Employee is allowed to make only one change per year to there fund of choice.

Effects on PowerForce

Conceptually PowerForce partially provides for the choice of fund already:

  • The Company has a nominated Super Fund and is the System Default
  • The Employee can accept the Companies fund or choose an alternate fund from a drop-down box

Modifications [release 5-D-2]

  • Modification has been made to the Employee Fund to include an effective date of the fund. This also includes fund history.
  • Modification to Superannuation Processing to gain the effective fund for the Processing Period – this will facilitate regeneration of Superannuation reports past and future



The result of this modification will position PowerForce as Employee Choice of Superannuation compliant, with the necessary functionality required to correctly record and report Superannuation Payments to Funds
