A big part of financial planning is organising your superannuation
Millions of people across Australia have lost, or unclaimed super. In fact, as of 2016, Australian super funds and the Australia Tax Office (ATO) were holding a staggering $12 billion worth of unclaimed super. This averages out to $10,000 cash for every Australian.
Your superannuation funds are your primary retirement savings, so it’s essential that you keep track of the money in your super accounts. If you’ve changed your job, address, or name, or have had part-time or causal job, it’s likely you’ve got some lost, or unclaimed super. Over the years, you may have accumulated multiple super accounts and simply lost track of them. If you want the most out of your super, it’s important to take control and know where your super funds are held.
