How to find your superannuation accounts

Contrary to popular belief, finding your superannuation is actually a relatively simple process. As long as you can log into your mygov portal and link your myGov account to the ATO. 

However, once you have done that, deciding whether a particular super fund is the best option for you, and undertaking a comparison of other funds available is not quite as simple. 

Right now, all you want to do is find your super. These are the steps outlined by the ATO, with a couple of cropped screenshots showing you exactly what you should be looking for.

The ATO have produced a mysuper comparison tool that is available. However with the supa comparison table you can also access independent research on ESG factors such as net-zero targets, coal, and oil & gas exclusions, and in our humble opinion it is a little easier to filter through. Have a look at both and happy hunting!
