Find your lost super

Finding $20 in your pocket is always great – imagine finding thousands in lost super that belongs to you.

How super goes missing

If you’ve ever changed your name, address or job, chances are you have super in a few accounts you’ve lost track of. This means your lost or unclaimed super is either:

  1. With the Australian Tax Office (ATO)

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

  2. Still with your super fund

    they’re holding onto your super and their fees are still eating into your super balance

As at June 30 2017, according to the ATO, there was almost $18 billion in lost super. Could some of this be yours?

How to keep track of your super

There's a few things you can do to keep your super in sight and in mind.

  1. Stay in touch with your super fund

    Update your details if you move house or change your name.

  2. Consolidate your super

    Use our online Consolidate your super form to save on fees and paperwork hassles – it takes just 5 minutes.

  3. Make sure your super fund has your Tax File Number (TFN)
