A Staggering $12.5 Billion Dollars is Sitting in Lost Super - Is Some of it Yours?
I regularly talk to clients about their superannuation and it amazes me that so many people have lost track of their super accounts over the years (me included!!!). In February this year the ATO advised a staggering lost super total of $12.5 billion from 1.2 million lost accounts. That's an average balance of every lost super account of nearly $10,000.
Here is a brief summary by state:
NSW - 405,079 lost accounts $4,213 million
Vic - 264,330 lost accounts for $2,736 million
Qld - 274,790 lost accounts for $2,722 million
WA - 207,075 lost accounts for $1,518 million
SA - 72,238 lost accounts for $680 million
ACT - 22,270 lost accounts for $248 million
NT - 23,819 lost accounts for $208 million
Tas - 22,160 lost accounts for $198 million
