How Does Super Become Lost?
Super accounts often become ‘lost’ if your fund loses contact with you. Some of the most common reasons for this are if you have:
- Changed jobs
- Had more than one job at the one time (and super was being paid into different accounts by your employers)
- Moved house (and forgot to update your address with the fund)
- Changed your name (marriage, divorce etc)
- Worked in Australia as a temporary resident and since left Australia
You may have several super account but inactive. After a period of time, if a super fund can’t contact you, they may give your details to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) or transfer your money to what’s known as an eligible rollover fund.We will contact with your other inactive super fund to roll over fund to your current super fund on behalf of you.
