Aware Super are incredibly inept. We have been trying to roll-over our funds into a newly established SMSF for months now, and Aware have made zero progress and appear to be willing to do anything to prevent us from making this transition. Their customer service is infuriating, and the endless requests for information have no consistency. What was a swift and painless process for my wife and Christian super seems to be an insurmountable challenge for Aware Super. Absolutely appalling.
