  • Keeping track of your super

    Your super is your savings for retirement. It is important to be aware of what super accounts you have, how much is being contributed, and what insurance they provide.

    You may have lost track of some of your super if you have ever changed your name, address, job or lived overseas. If you work overseas temporarily for an Australian employer they may still be required to pay you super.

    Having several super accounts could mean multiple fees and charges are reducing your overall super investment.

    You can check your super using ATO online services through myGov.


    Check your super

    Check and manage your super by creating a myGovExternal Link account and linking to the ATO. You can then:

    • see details of all your super accounts, including any you have lost track of
    • find lost super held by super funds that you can rollover into a super account of your choice
    • 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 – before consolidating, check you will not lose valuable insurance. For more information on insurance in super, visit ASIC's MoneySmart websiteExternal Link.

    To find out how much you contributed to your super fund so you do not exceed the superannuation contribution caps, phone us on 13 10 20.
