Measures designed to protect the integrity of the early access to superannuation scheme have helped detect a small amount of fraudulent activity associated with the program.
ATO systems were not hacked.
A small number of people appear to have had personal details unlawfully used in a bid to defraud the program. This has been stopped and the impacted individuals are being contacted.
The ATO’s online systems have not been compromised.
The matter is currently under investigation by the AFP and for operational reasons we are unable to comment further at this stage.
