Although it is a legal requirement for your employer to pay your superannuation, it is true that some employer does not make the superannuation contribution to your superannuation fund. If you suspect that your employer is not paying your superannuation or if you are unsure, your first contact should be directly with your employer.

 

If the employer states that they have paid but you can’t find any evidence, please ask them for details of your superannuation fund and contact superannuation fund directly to see if your account has the correct balance.

 

If your employer refuses to pay or does not provide you with any evidence of payment, then you can make a complaint to the Australian Taxation Office. The following link provides more information regarding unpaid superannuation.

If you entered Australia on an eligible temporary resident visa you can, in most cases, access your contributions when you leave Australia, although the contributions will be taxed.
