If you've changed jobs a few times or regularly work on short projects, you may have accumulated multiple super accounts over the years. You may have lost track of some accounts or you may have had super contributions made that you didn't even know about.
Why should I combine my super?
Multiple super accounts equal multiple super fees, and many have automatic insurance arrangements and premiums. Finding your lost super and combining your super accounts can add thousands of dollars to your final super balance.
Help me find my super?
Just log in to your account, register your Tax File Number, and provide your consent for a SuperMatch search and we'll do all the work for you.
If you prefer the DIY option, we also maintain a list of free databases where you can search for lost super accounts and find details of existing accounts you may have. Just visit our Lost Super page for instructions.
Know where your super is?
Combine online or over the phone*
If you know where your other super is you can combine it all online through your Media Super account using our 'Online rollover request' process to initiate a form-free super transfer. You'll find the link to start the process on the 'Rollovers/Transfers In' page under the 'Contributions' tab.
If you prefer to do things over the phone, we also offer a phone based service. Please call our Super Helpline on 1800 640 886 and one of our friendly staff will be ready to assist.
Alternatively, you can print and complete a Combine and Save (Rollover) form for each account that you wish to roll in, and mail it back to us.
What do I need to consider?
Before combining accounts always compare the fees, investment options and insurance of the various super funds to ensure you are aware of penalties such as exit fees and loss of benefits that may apply.
Our Business Development Managers are also available to help you find and combine your super. They can assist you with locating your other super if you’re not sure where it is and can walk you through using your account to combine all your super.
