New ATO data reveals that over $2.2 million in lost super is waiting to be claimed in one NSW account.
Overall, NSW residents have the most to gain by checking in on their super, with $4.9 billion in lost and unclaimed super still up for grabs.
This amount is down by over $120 million from last year, with many in the state taking advantage of ATO’s online services, making finding and consolidating your super a breeze.
Your super may become ‘lost’ if your fund loses contact with you, often through a change of job or address.
