Last stop - make sure you keep track of all your super
After finding any lost super, it’s important to try and make sure you don’t forget about your super. One easy way to do this is keeping your details up to date with your super fund. So next time you change details make sure you update your details with your super fund.
Consider taking your super with you when you change jobs. If you already have a super fund that you would like to stick with, you can. Once you start your new job, you simply need to fill out the details of your existing fund on the superannuation standard choice form and provide it to your new employer who should then pay your super contributions to your chosen fund.
