Maurice Blackburn has filed a class action on behalf of all AMP superannuation fund account holders.
The claim alleges that the AMP trustees and AMP Group companies contravened a number of statutory and/or general law obligations, which resulted in AMP members being overcharged administration fees for an extended period of time.
Anyone who held one or more superannuation account(s) with AMP at any time from 30 May 2013 can sign up now for our class action. At this stage we do not need details of the fees you paid on your AMP superannuation account(s).

On 20 August 2019, the Court made orders consolidating our proceeding and another proceeding. The consolidated proceeding is known as Dale Robert Alford, Sebastian Smith, Anne Cooper and Jodie Mitchell v AMP Superannuation Limited and others (VID572/2019) (Consolidated Proceeding).
The consolidation means that the class action will now be conducted by both Maurice Blackburn and another law firm acting jointly pursuant to an agreed cooperation protocol. All representative applicants will continue to act in their representative capacity.
The litigation funders in both proceedings will provide funding support in the Consolidated Proceeding. In consideration for the funding, the litigation funders are entitled to a funding commission on monies recovered in the proceeding.
As a result of the joint proposal reached by the applicants, the funding commission payable to the litigation funders will be left to the Court to decide at the time of settlement, according to what is fair and reasonable.
In ordering consolidation, the Court also made common fund orders, which means that the Funding Terms bind all eligible group members in the Consolidated Proceeding, regardless of whether they have entered into a funding agreement with the litigation funders or retained Maurice Blackburn or the other firm of solicitors. This means that all group members who ultimately participate in the class action will contribute in equal proportion to the costs of running the proceeding.
The consolidation and common fund orders, including the Funding Terms, are downloadable here.
