TAA employees may be entitled to compensation for lost super

Shine Lawyers is investigating claims on behalf of individuals who were employed by TAA (and who subsequently may have had their employment transferred to Qantas) during 1971 – 1981 who we believe were wrongly advised as to their eligibility to join the Commonwealth Superannuation Scheme (CSS).

The claims centre on advice/information that was provided to staff such as cabin service attendants, baggage handlers and the like, that resulted in individuals joining an alternative scheme operated by TAA. Individuals who joined these alternative schemes may be entitled to the difference between what they actually received in superannuation and benefits on their retirement, and what they could have received if they joined the Commonwealth Scheme. The difference can end up totalling many hundreds of thousands of dollars.

If you:

  • Commenced employment with TAA (you may subsequently have had your employment transferred to Qantas) during 1971 and 1981;
  • Had superannuation other than through CSS; and
  • You've retired from Qantas in the past 6 years
Then Shine Lawyers may be able to help you start a claim for compensation.

Anyone who believes they may have been affected by this advice, or who was a TAA employee at any stage during 1971 – 1981 is encouraged to contact us to get an idea of their rights and ability to claim compensation.
