If you still have more than one super account, you probably form part of the majority of Aussies who also ‘don’t have time’ to deal with the hassle of consolidating their super. We could tell you about the benefits until we’re blue in the face, like saving on paying multiple fees for instance. But unfortunately for most, the appeal of having a comfortable retirement isn’t enough to set aside a few minutes and get their super sorted.
Luckily, it’s now even easier to consolidate your super. Give StatewideSuper a call, on
1300 65 18 65, we can do the whole thing for you! All you’ll need is a ‘Consolidate your super’ form and your tax file number and then you can sit back, relax and leave the rest to us. If you’re not already with StatewideSuper, give our Client Services team a call, they’ll be happy to walk you through the simple process of becoming a StatewideSuper member.
If you’re the type of person who would prefer doing it yourself, the Australian Tax Office (ATO) has updated the SuperSeeker tool with the ability to find and roll your super into your chosen fund, after you’ve confirmed your identity. With this major improvement we can see super making it to number one on your list! Go online to www.ato.gov.au and get the ball rolling. We promise it won’t take you any longer than making your morning cup of coffee (froth included).
We know it seems like a lot of work but trust us, you’ll feel great about yourself, just as if you’d gone for a 12km run but without all the aches and pains. What could be easier?
