Have you lost some super?
If you've lost track of some super, you’re probably losing money. Finding lost superannuation isn't hard, and it gives you the chance to roll your accounts together to reduce fees.
If you’ve forgotten about some old super accounts, you’re probably paying fees on each account and that can reduce your super savings over time. You might also be paying insurance premiums for cover you no longer need. This also reduces your super balance.
Make the most of your lost super in three steps:
Find your lost super
You can search for your lost superannuation online, or in person.
- Find your lost super with SuperFinder.
- SuperSeeker, the Australian Tax Office super database, is free to search. Enter your TFN and date of birth to see if you’ve lost some super. Or find out by calling 13 28 65.
- Unclaimed super lets you search AUSfund, an eligible rollover fund that looks after lost and inactive accounts.
- Get in touch with past employers, and ask which super fund they paid your super into. Then contact those funds to confirm your account details.
Review your accounts
You might want to combine all your super together into one account. Before you do:
- check if there are any fees for leaving previous funds, or joining a new fund. Calculate their likely impact on your super balance
- review any other benefits, such as insurance cover, you have through your previous funds
- think about getting financial advice to help you compare the benefits and costs of funds, and what impact rolling over will have on your super balance.
