Millions in lost super
FEDERAL MP Christian Porter is encouraging locals to check if they have any lost or unclaimed superannuation with the Australian Tax Office after it revealed more than $100 million of unclaimed super belonged to people in Pearce.
It revealed that as of June 30 this year there were more than 6.3 million lost and ATO-held super accounts worth almost $18 billion, with 25,744 unclaimed accounts worth more than $105 million in Pearce.
“There are many ways people can lose contact with their superannuation, including changing jobs which may force them into a new superannuation fund, moving homes or not updating their details,” Mr Porter said.
“I encourage everyone to log onto the ATO website to check if they have any unclaimed superannuation.”
