Lost a billion dollars recently? Did you know there’s nearly $12 billion of lost super out there, in some 6.1 million lost accounts – and some of it may be yours!
How is your superannuation lost?
- If your old superannuation account hasn’t received any contributions for 5 years or;
- If your old superannuation fund doesn’t have your current postal address and cannot contact you.
If one of the above applies, your old fund must report your account to a national database known as the ‘Lost Members Register’, administered by the Australian Taxation office (ATO).
So if you’ve worked since 1992 and changed jobs, address or even had a name change, you could be one of the millions of Australians with unclaimed or lost superannuation. Why not join max and get our Super Sorters to go out and see what we can dig up?
