Ellenbrook Advocate - - #SNAPPERTH -

FED­ERAL MP Chris­tian Porter is en­cour­ag­ing lo­cals to check if they have any lost or un­claimed su­per­an­nu­a­tion with the Aus­tralian Tax Of­fice af­ter it was re­vealed more than $100 mil­lion of un­claimed su­per be­longed to peo­ple in Pearce.

It was re­vealed that on June 30 this year, there were over 6.3 mil­lion lost and ATO-held su­per ac­counts worth al­most $18 bil­lion, with 25744 un­claimed ac­counts worth more than $105 mil­lion in Pearce.

Mr Porter said it was a great re­minder for peo­ple to check their su­per­an­nu­a­tion.

“There are many ways peo­ple can lose con­tact with their su­per­an­nu­a­tion, in­clud­ing chang­ing jobs which may force them into a new fund, mov­ing homes or not up­dat­ing their de­tails with their su­per­an­nu­a­tion fund,” he said. “I en­cour­age ev­ery­one to log onto the ATO web­site to check if they have any un­claimed su­per­an­nu­a­tion.”
