Testimonials


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

Types of Unclaimed Super

Unclaimed superannuation falls into the categories listed below:

• member 65 years old or older
• deceased member
• non-member spouse
• small or insoluble lost member account
• former temporary resident

If an individual becomes qualified for a superannuation benefit, as an overall principle, you must try to get in touch with them as soon as practicable. Their superannuation entitlement will usually be deemed as unclaimed super if you have attempted to contact then pay them, but failed.

Member 65 Years Old or Older

The amount to be given to a fund member is deemed to be unclaimed superannuation if each of the criteria below is met:
• the member reached the age of eligibility (aged 65 or older if so set by the governing rules of the fund)
• you haven't gotten an amount intended for the member (or, if a defined benefits superannuation scheme, the benefit doesn't accrue) in the past two years
• since you previously had gotten in touch with the member, following a period of 5 years, you've been incapable of contacting the fund member again when making reasonable efforts.

Non-Member Spouse

An amount to be paid to a spouse, who is a non-member, is deemed to be unclaimed superannuation if all the criteria below are met:
• a payment split referring a "splittable" payment for the interest that an individual has as a fund member
• as the payment split's result, the non-member spouse (or if they've died the legal personal representative) is permitted to be rewarded an amount
• after a period has passed and making reasonable efforts, you're unable to guarantee that their legal personal representative or the non-member spouse will get the amount.

Deceased Super Member

An amount to be paid for a fund member who's deceased is deemed to be unclaimed superannuation if all the criteria below are met:
• the fund member has passed away
• under the fund's governing rules or by the process of law, you decide that a benefit (but an annuity or pension) is instantly payable for the fund member
• you haven't acquired an amount intended for the Fund member (or, a benefit doesn't accrue for the fund member for the defined benefit super scheme) in the past two years
• after a period has passed and making deliberate efforts, you're unable to guarantee that the super benefit will be acquired by the individual who is allowed to get the benefit.
