Consolidate your super

Consolidate your super

Save time and money by rolling multiple super accounts into the one fund

According to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), one in four Australians could be missing out on their share of billions of dollars in lost or unclaimed super. If you’ve had one or more employers prior to working for the SA public sector, it’s likely you do too. You can find out more about potential lost super on the ATO website.

Especially if you went with the fund each employer offered when you started working for them. Having multiple super funds isn’t the end of the world but the reality is you could be eroding your super balance over time. This means there may be less in your super than you’d like when you stop working.

Save money

Fewer funds means less fees. You could save money by not paying multiple admin fees for multiple accounts, which adds up over a lifetime.

Save time

Having fewer funds is easier to keep track of. You have less paperwork and it is easier to track how much super you have. You’ll have so much less to read.

Have better control

Fewer super funds means you can more easily manage your investment strategy to better suit your needs. Set up the future you really want. 

Before you leave a fund, check to see if you have any insurance through the fund. This might be life, total and permanent disability (TPD), and/or income protection insurance.

If you change funds, you might not be able to get the same cover. If you're not sure, speak to a financial adviser.

Speak to a financial planner

Your super is unique to you, and it may be one of the biggest investments you’ll ever make. We encourage you to seek financial advice before making any big decisions.

Need to find lost super?

If you have worked for more than one employer, you may have a super account you’ve forgotten or don’t know about. These lost super accounts usually have small balances but in the end these extra amounts can help you financially in the long-run. Rather than letting these balances erode from fees, you can easily search for lost super by linking your myGov account with the ATO. Once you’ve found your lost super, you can consolidate it into your current Super SA account via your myGov account.
