Do you have $220,000 in a lost super account?

All / 24.01.2019

Yes, that sounds incredible but the Australian Tax Office announced in November 2008 that there is an unclaimed (lost) superannuation account holding $220,000! That’s enough to make you find out if it could be yours – or a family member’s?

Anyone who has changed their name, address or job (that accounts for a few of us!) could have some money sitting in a super fund and totally forgotten about it. It might not be $220,000 but you never know what you might find.

It’s worth taking a few minutes to look. Start here: https://www.ato.gov.au/Individuals/Super/Growing-your-super/Keeping-track-of-your-super/.
