Which postcode loses the most super?

October 2016

Australia's super industry is the envy of major global economies, but what happens to 'lost' super?

There is over $11.7 billion in lost super sitting with the Australian Tax Office (ATO) and Mackay in QLD is responsible for $49,256,340.55 of it.

While Mackay and its surrounding suburbs top the list, Cairns comes in a close second with $49,101,868.85. 

But it's not all holiday zones that make the top 10 lost super postcodes – Liverpool and Campbelltown in NSW and Sydney's CBD all make the list.

If you have registered for myGov, you can link your account to the ATO's online services and bring up any super accountants attached to your Tax File Number.
