The Unclaimed Superannuation Benefits Act came into effect on 13 May 1998. The purpose of the Act is to provide for the payment by NT based fund managers of certain unclaimed superannuation moneys to the Treasurer of Northern Territory, the record keeping of the associated information and for payment to the beneficiaries of those moneys.

It is important to note that superannuation moneys do not become unclaimed until they are due to be paid, that being upon the death of the member or them reaching the age of 65 (60 years for females prior to 29 August 2002).
