Important information for Members & Employers from 1 March 2022
This notification is to let you know that we will be changing our Administrator effective 1 March 2022.
The Trustee has decided to transfer the administrative services currently being undertaken by AMCO Pty Ltd to Independent Fund Administrators & Advisers Pty Ltd (IFAA). This change will occur from 1 March 2022.
This decision was not made lightly by the Trustee considering the long-term arrangements that have been in place with AMCO. The Trustee feels confident that IFAA will provide improved services and technology to the employers and members of CIRT and JETCO.
