Track down your lost super

Finding $20 in your pocket is always great but imagine finding thousands in super that you had lost track of. 

How super goes missing

If you've ever changed your name, address, or job, you may have super in a few accounts you've lost track of. Any lost or unclaimed super is either:

  1. With the ATO

    your super fund might have transferred your super to the ATO where it currently isn’t growing, or;

  2. Still with another super fund.

    Leaving your super with multiple funds means doubling up on fees that eat in to your super balance.

Things to consider

Ask your super provider for information about fees or charges that may apply, or any other information about the effect a transfer may have on your benefits, such as insurance cover.

1. Before making a decision to combine your super, consider any fees or charges that may apply, and the effect a transfer may have on benefits in your other fund such as insurance cover. We recommend you consider seeking financial advice.
