Superannuation Advisor Sydney
By the time you retire, superannuation may be your second most valuable asset behind your home. This may come as a bit of a surprise; with many of us unsure of what we’re investing in, despite contributing almost 10% of our salary to super each year.
Superannuation advice can lead to massive growth and provide large tax benefits as opposed to other ways of investing. Depending on your age and circumstances, they can potentially be taken tax-free.
We are not linked to a bank or superannuation provider. Our Sydney based team of superannuation advisor experts can provide helpful super advice that is purely for you. Your financial goals are our priority, not the bank’s bottom line.
We are leading financial planner experts who are in the business of helping you to grow financially. Mirador Wealth can assist with your investments, greater budget control, financial advice or superannuation management.

The Cost of Lost Superannuation
It’s been revealed by the ATO that there is a huge sum of unclaimed super. $13.5 billion, to be precise. And that figure is only growing.
What defines a Superannuation account as lost?
Your super account can be classed as ‘lost’ if no money has been added for 12 months, and if your fund does not have your current address.
Or if you have a default employer super plan, an account is considered lost if no money has been added for five years.
While the average lost super account has around $10,000, the balances can vary from hundreds to thousands of dollars.
If this seems like your current situation, then you need to get in touch on (02) 8014 5889 to find your lost super today.
Compounding Effects of Lost Superannuation
Many people have multiple super accounts from previous casual work/part-time work that they have done in the past. Some people purposefully keep multiple super accounts for financial reasons. But, a lot of everyday Australians are unaware their hard-earned super are being dwindled by maintenance and account keeping fees. As a result, billions of dollars are lost or unclaimed every year.
Westpac completed a “Lost Super Report” in 2016. The report found that today’s $13.5 billion in lost super funds would equate to a whopping $42.5 billion in retirement.
Most noteworthy, the largest area for lost super is in the postcode 4740, near Mackay and surrounds. Consequently, this area holds a pool of $58 million in unclaimed super.
Improving your Superannuation
With nearly two-thirds of all Aussies saying that they’d like to live more comfortably in retirement than they currently do. So, it makes sense to take control of your superannuation today. According to the Lost Super Report, it was found that almost three-quarters of people (73%) wished they’d looked after their super better in their youth.
PLUS – as of December 31, 2016, the government is set to pocket an extra $220 million in revenue by rolling over an estimated 100,000 ‘lost’ super accounts. The government keeps all investment earnings on unclaimed super and only pays a small amount of interest. Plus, if you don’t claim super, you can risk losing the life insurance cover.
So – don’t delay! It’s never too late to change and to make an improvement on your super.
