It is important to keep track of your super. If you've ever changed your name, address or job, you may have lost track of some of your super. Having several super accounts could mean that fees and charges are reducing your overall super investment.
There are a number of ways to keep track of and manage your super.
You can register for our online services and use SuperSeeker to:
- check your current super accounts into which money has been paid in the last two financial years
- find lost super - there are billions in lost super, see if some of it is yours
- find ATO-held super - if the government, your super fund or your employer can't find an account to transfer your super to, we hold it on your behalf
- transfer your super into the super account you want.
Registering online is an important security measure to protect the personal information displayed. It also helps to ensure that any transactions are made by you. To register, we need some personal information as well as information from some personal documents to know who you are.
You can find out if you have any lost or ATO-held super by doing a quick search.
