Get what's yours back

FOR many people, retirement is so far off into the future that they don't give it a second thought.

Yet a crucial part of being able to retire is having enough superannuation to live comfortably.

I don't know about you, but I know what's sitting in my super account isn't anywhere near the suggested $545,000 to live on.

But right now there is more than $43 million in unclaimed super, right here in the Bundaberg region.

I understand you can forget or lose track of super - especially if you've worked a few different part-time jobs.

But what if tracking down that lost super - there are roughly 5000 forgotten accounts in Bundy - meant you could have that little bit more in the kitty?

And if you do find that lost super, it could actually save you money, as it's currently being chewed up in fees and charges.

There are already enough fluctuations with some funds that you don't want to lose more than necessary.

So checking on your super is absolutely worthwhile.
