ATO alerts issued for unclaimed super
The Australian Tax Office (ATO) will be contacting 80,000 individuals, starting this week, to alert them of unclaimed super.
An email campaign will alert members about ATO-held unclaimed super money from 5 April. On 16 April, 20,000 letters and SMS will be sent.
The ATO currently holds unclaimed super money for around 5.38 million accounts, totalling $3.75 billion as at 30 June 2017. These alerts will form part of a number of strategies used by the Tax Office to reunite individuals with their unclaimed super.
To claim unclaimed super money, individuals must create a myGov account which is linked to ATO online services.
