How do we find your lost and other superannuation?


In Australia, there’s over $18 billion* in lost and unclaimed super. Some of it could be yours, especially if you've held more than one job or changed your name or address. The good news is we can help you get it back!

Finding lost super

Searching for your other super

Using the Tax File Number (TFN) we have on file for you, we will use the Australian Taxation Office's (ATO) SuperMatch Program to search for your other super.

Under this program, the ATO supplies participating Australian super funds with details of other super accounts for their members, so the fund can contact these members and unite them with their lost, unclaimed or other super. Search now for any lost super.

If you don’t have your TFN on file with Sunsuper, simply log into Member Online and click on ‘Contact details & TFN’. Alternatively call 13 11 84 and speak to one of our friendly staff. We can add this information to your file.

Your TFN will be treated with the strictest confidentiality and will only be used for lawful purposes.

Things to consider before combining your super funds

We encourage you to compare Sunsuper with your other fund(s). A quick check of a comparison tool from a super fund ratings house, like Chant West's AppleCheck, will show you how we stack up.

Any insurance you have with your other fund(s) would normally be cancelled when you roll out. You may be eligible to transfer insurance cover you may have with your other fund(s) to Sunsuper. To transfer your existing cover, please complete and return the Transfer of insurance cover form [PDF88KB].

Make sure you don’t rollover until you have received confirmation from Sunsuper that your insurance transfer request has been accepted.

If you'd like to get a full view of your Sunsuper account activity online, log into Member Online.

What happens next?

Following your search, and with your approval, we’ll contact your other funds and arrange for your super balances to be transferred to your Sunsuper account. We’ll then send a confirmation to let you know when the funds have been deposited with us.

Any lost or unclaimed money held at the ATO will automatically be paid into your Sunsuper account. As the ATO only transfers monies on a monthly basis, we'll let you know when it arrives.
