Few people would be willing to turn their backs on thousands of hard-earned dollars. Yet when it comes to super money, many people have thousands of missing dollars they don’t know about.
More accounts, less money
It’s easy for super to get lost.
Most of us have more than one job in our lifetimes. And that generally means more than one super account.
What’s more, when you change jobs or move house your super fund can lose contact with you. And with multiple super accounts it’s likely you’ll lose track of some super payments from previous employers.
Over time, these payments can add up to thousands and thousands of dollars. In fact, in Australia there is almost $16 billion dollars’ worth of lost super either waiting at the tax office to be reclaimed or in super accounts its owners have lost track of1.
