    Post found in supersavings..

    FOUND $4000 OF LOST SUPERANNUATION

    Recently, I received information from my accountant about SuperSeeker.
    It
    is a free service on the Australian Taxation Office website that
    searches for lost superannuation. The URL is (www.ato.gov.au/super). I
    gave
    it a try and found $4000.

    When you get onto their website there is a link to SuperSeeker on the
    right
    hand side and once some personal details have been entered (Tax File
    Number, name and date of birth), it will list any possible matches for
    lost
    superannuation funds, along with the phone number of the fund so that
    you
    can follow it up.

    As I’ve had a few jobs in the past I decided to give it a go. I came up
    with two possible matches and after making both phone calls I’m happy
    to
    say that I am going to roll over into my current fund almost $4,000
    that I
    didn’t even know I had!

    A little advice! I had some trouble getting onto the website during
    business hours (just busy I imagine) so I tried at night and had no
    problem. Also, I found it beneficial to have my resume handy because
    when
    you get in touch with the Fund they do ask you some questions to make
    sure
    you are the right person the super belongs to. I was asked who my
    employer
    was between two certain years by one fund, and by the other what street
    I
    had lived in in a certain suburb. But don’t worry, it’s not a test – if
    you
    need to do a bit of checking (or remembering), you can always phone
    them back.

    I owe you a beer. I just found $1200. I thought I had rolled all my previous super into my current fund.

    We can share a beer when I retire at 55 in another 15 years. By then it should be worth a couple of beers.

    It will be interesting to see how much it all adds upto (your $4000 + yacks $1200 + sis $90)

    Cheers
