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, 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 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.

Keeping 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

    It’s easy to search and consolidate your super online.
