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.”
