Lost Superannuation

Lost Superannuation

Not so long ago I had a client who was looking to purchase his first investment property.  As part of his application I had to list his assets and liabilities.   Like most people, he did not have all of his paperwork to hand and decided to look for his superannuation statements. To his delight, he found details of a Super fund he had forgotten about, holding over $50,000 of his hard-earned money.  The good news is, you don’t have to go rifling through your drawers and boxes of old paperwork.  Simply follow the instructions below taken from the ATO.gov.au website – see link at the bottom of this page.

Service Description

Do you have any unclaimed or lost superannuation?

SuperSeeker searches the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) lost members register for any forgotten or lost superannution you may have.  You can search SuperSeeker online, by phone, or by completing a form and you will get the same results.

Searching using the form will take longer whereas searching online or by phone is quick and easy.

Your super fund will report you as a lost member if:

  • they have not been able to contact you;
  • they have not received any contributions or rollover amounts for you in the last five years; or
  • your account was transferred from another fund as a lost member account and no new address has been found.

Choose the link below to start your online SuperSeeker search.

What is needed to use this service?

When searching for your lost superannuation, you will be requested to provide:

  • your Tax File Number,
  • family and given names, and
  • date of birth.

If there is a possible match, you will be given the name and contact details of the super fund that may have your lost superannuation. You can then contact the fund to talk about what to do with your super benefits.
