The Snedden Hall & Gallop Commonwealth Superannuation team recently completed a claim for JB.  He had initially worked for the Department of Housing and Construction in the ACT.  He was advised by his supervisor that he was not eligible to join the superannuation scheme and, accordingly, did not do so.  Later, he moved into a permanent position in another department and was admitted to the scheme but lost the value of the superannuation scheme membership over a number of years.
We recently assisted JB in presenting his case to the representatives of the Commonwealth and, ultimately, reached an agreement and arranged for payment of the settlement money to him.
Shortly after finalising the matter, JB wrote, “Just to confirm that we received the payment from the Department of Finance.  Thanks for your help in this matter.  You made it very easy for us.”
