You can ask your employer what super company you are with. You can also call the ATO to find out.

Then you can talk to your super company and ask them how much money is in your account.

Your employer can tell you what super account they pay your money to. You might have more than one super account. Ask the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to tell you how many accounts you have by calling 13 10 20. You can also find your super through myGov at https://my.gov.au.

Then you can talk to each super company and ask how much you have. Ask them about insurance and fees.
