Su­per with myGov

Find your lost

THE 6210 post­code tops the list for lost su­per­an­nu­a­tion.

There were more than $47 mil­lion in lost and Aus­tralian Tax Of­fice-held su­per ac­counts in the 6210 post­code on June 30.

Peo­ple liv­ing in WA have about 418,000 lost and un­claimed su­per ac­counts worth $1.91 bil­lion to find.

As­sis­tant Com­mis­sioner Deb­bie Rawl­ings said the eas­i­est way for peo­ple to keep track of their su­per, find lost or un­claimed su­per, or com­bine their ac­counts was by us­ing ATO on­line ser­vices through myGov.

“Over the past four fi­nan­cial years we’ve re­united 1.68 mil­lion ac­counts worth $8.12 bil­lion with the ac­count owner,” she said.

“By us­ing myGov to track down your su­per, the money will be trans­ferred to your pre­ferred fund, gen­er­ally within three work­ing days.”

More peo­ple are find­ing their lost and un­claimed su­per through the on­line ser­vices ev­ery year, but these fig­ures show there are many who still may not re­alise how quickly and eas­ily they can check their su­per ac­counts.

Call the ATO Su­per Helpline on 13 10 20.
