Got a question?

Why should I keep track of my super?


Staying on top of your super will keep you up to date about:

  • How much super you’re being paid
  • How many super accounts you have
  • Any insurance provided with your super

It’s important to know where your super is. Having multiple accounts can mean paying multiple fees which over time could add up to thousands of dollars. That's money that could be saved towards retirement.

For more information visit the ATO website
