How to update the Engineering Super USI

From 1 June 2024, Engineering Super’s USI and ABN changed.
It is important that your employees’ records are updated to ensure their super guarantee payments can be processed successfully. Contributions made to the old USI and ABN will bounce from 31 May 2024.
These are the details to make super payments to Engineering Super:
USI/SPIN: 43 905 581 638 021
ABN: 43 905 581 638
Fund name: Engineering Super
Phone number: 1300 001 168

How to update your employee’s super details

If you are making a super payment to a Engineering Super member after 1 June 2024 you need to use:
  • Engineering Super’s new USI is 43 905 581 638 021
  • Engineering Super’s new ABN is 43 905 581 638
Your employees who are with Engineering Super have been emailed a new super choice form and letter of compliance they can give to you. Use these details to update your payroll system.
For any employee who accrued super for a period prior to 1 June 2024 and it hasn’t been paid, you will need to use the new Engineering Super USI and ABN. If you use the old ABN and USI, the payment will bounce.
All employers must pay super contributions through a method that meets the SuperStream rules.

Why do I need to update the USI and ABN for employees with Engineering Super?

On 1 June 2024, Engineering Super will change master trusts, becoming part of the OneSuper Plan. When this happens, the USI and ABN for the super fund will change.
SuperStream uses a super fund’s USI and ABN to identify the super fund. The member number identifies the member at the fund.
This means if an employee’s super payment is paid to the old USI and ABN, the fund won’t be recognised and the payment will bounce. To ensure that future super guarantee payments are received by the quarterly deadlines, it is important to update your super records for employees that are members of Engineering Super.

When do I need to make the update by?

The new USI and ABN are valid from 1 June 2024. The old USI and ABN will stop working on 31 May 2024. We recommend that you update the USI and ABN as soon as possible from 1 June 2024.
The next quarter deadline for super guarantee payments is 28 July, 2024.

Can I pay by EFT?

No. Employers need to use a SuperStream compliant system to make super payments. This allows you to make multiple super payments to different funds, with just one transfer. It also sends the payment with data about the payment, e.g. we can see that a $1,500 employer super contribution for Jane Smith is made up of $1,000 in superannuation guarantee contributions and $500 in salary sacrifice contributions.

Do I need an employer number with Engineering Super?

No. You don’t need to be registered with us in order to make a payment. Just leave that field blank.

I’m still having issues, who can I contact?

If you are having troubles setting up or updating the USI and the ABN on your payroll software, we recommend that you contact the software provider directly. They will have the technical expertise to guide you.
