ATO-held super

ATO-held super includes amounts paid to us by employers, super funds or the government on your behalf that needs to go into your super. If your super fund can't contact you or we are unable to find an account to transfer the money to, we will hold it for you.

To find out if you have ATO-held super, use our online services for individuals. You will need a myGov account linked to the ATO.

You can use our online services to:

  • view details of all your super accounts, including any you have lost track of
  • combine multiple super accounts by transferring your super, including ATO-held super, into your preferred super account – if this is a fund-to-fund transfer it will generally be actioned within three working days
  • withdraw your ATO-held super and put it into your bank account, if you meet certain conditions.
