SuperSeeker, the ATO’s online tool, helps you find lost and/or unclaimed super, and can now help you lodge a request with your fund online if you wish to transfer lost super to another super account.
To search using SuperSeeker, all you need to provide is your:
■ Tax file number
■ Date of birth
If you do find any previously lost super and wish to transfer the whole balance to another fund, SuperSeeker can help by pre-filling a transfer form with your information.
However, you will need to provide some extra information, including the ABN and account number of the fund you wish to transfer the lost account to. Then you can choose to submit the form electronically to the fund, who will activate the transfer. Your fund may ask for more information or proof of identity before they transfer the account.
By consolidating your super, you will:
■ Save on fees, which means more money in YOUR pocket when you retire
■ Find it easier to manage
■ Decrease the chance of losing super again.
