Is there a lost superannuation account in your family?

The tax office says $14 billion in lost super is waiting to be claimed. Does some of this relate to you or your family members?

The problem arises because people – particularly in their younger years – had many jobs and employer superannuation contributions were made to funds which have lost contact with the member. More than 40 per cent of super account holders have more than one account.

It’s important to keep member details up-to-date for typical life events, such as changing surname when getting married and moving address.
