• Check your super

    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 check and manage your super.

    1 Use myGov for a full view of your super

    You can create a myGov account and link the ATO to:

    • see details of all your super accounts, including any you have lost track of or forgotten about
    • 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
    • combine multiple super accounts by transferring your super into your preferred super account; if this is a fund-to-fund transfer it will generally be actioned within three working days.
