Your ‘lost’ super could be costing you money
Wednesday, Feb 25, 2015
The latest estimate puts the amount of lost super at about $20 billion. Changing jobs or moving house can often result in people losing track of super funds.
But the Tax Office warns that having multiple funds could mean that many Australians are paying more — even up to thousands of dollars — in unnecessary fees each year. Australian Prudential and Regulation Authority (APRA) figures show the median figure for fees and charges paid by Australians for a low-cost superannuation account is $532 a year.
The Tax Office is encouraging anyone with more than one super fund to consider consolidating their super into one preferred account.
