I had no idea where my lost super was or the names of the funds. I just new it was scattered everywhere and I should definitely have more than $3,000 in my super. Australian Super Finder found all 7 of my funds and now my balance is almost $50,000. Thank you so much for getting my super back on track. ? Leonie, Thomastown VIC

Super Facts and Tips

Superannuation Management in your 40s

So youíre in your 40s. This is the most crucial time for building out your retirement savings. But make sure you get the home loan under control first.

As a general rule of thumb, donít worry about making any extra contributions into your super until your mortgage is less than 50% of your homeís value. You may be in your peak earning years but chances are your expenses are peaking too.

In this decade, you want to avoid getting into any bad debt. Another little tip here is that marriage breakdowns unfortunately occur. And they can have a big impact on your wealth. Make sure you are always aware of your financial position.

Taking an Interest in Your Super Affairs

Take an interest in your financial affairs and never leave it all for your partner to manage. If youíre in your 40s, think about what risks you can take. If youíre uncertain about taking risks, consider the following:

• Seeking financial advice.
• Top up your benefits.
• Nominate your beneficiaries.
• Look into contribution splitting.
• Review your insurance, and
• Family Trust
