Super waiting to be claimed in Electorate of Parkes

Monday, 25 September 2017

The Member for Parkes, Mark Coulton is encouraging locals to check if they have any lost or unclaimed superannuation, with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) announcing its latest figures.
As at 30 June this year, across Australia there were over 6.3 million lost and ATO-held super accounts worth almost $18 billion.
Mr Coulton said with 6,706 unclaimed accounts worth $5,209,453 in the Dubbo 2830 and Broken Hill 2880 postcodes alone, it is a great reminder for people to check.
“There are many ways people can lose contact with their superannuation, including changing jobs, which may force them into a new superannuation fund, moving homes, or not updating their details with their superannuation fund,” Mr Coulton said.
“I encourage everyone to log onto the ATO website to check if they have any unclaimed superannuation.”
The Minister for Revenue and Financial Services, the Hon Kelly O’Dwyer MP, said the Coalition Government has introduced a package of reforms that will deliver a strong and modern superannuation system that is solely focused on delivering outcomes for all Australian super fund members who rely on these funds to secure their retirement.
This includes legislation to extend choice for fund to workers under enterprise bargaining agreements or workplace determinations.
Mr Coulton said the changes will ensure more than one million workers have the right to choose their own superannuation fund if they are currently prevented from doing so because of enterprise bargaining agreements or workplace determinations.
 “This will help to reduce the number of multiple accounts which inevitably lead to unclaimed and lost superannuation,” he said.
