Follow steps 1-3 to find out if you have any lost super and how you can transfer it to your Colonial First State account.

  1. Find it
  2. Move it
  3. Track it
  • Step 1 - Find it

    Visit the ATO's Super Seeker website to search for any lost super. Be sure to have your tax file number on hand.


    Remember to check under all previous surnames, for example, maiden or married names.

  • Step 2 - Move it

    You can consolidate any super you find in one of two easy ways:

    We'll take care of the rest and if we need more information, we'll contact you directly. If you send a form to us, we'll also monitor the rollover on your behalf.


    • After using the superseeker online service to find your lost super, use the ATO's website to generate a transfer form which will be sent directly to your old super fund.


    Whatever method you choose, you will need to include a certified copy of your ID to verify your details.

  • Step 3 - Track it

    Now you wait. If you've sent your forms to us we'll be in touch if we need anything else from you.

    We will send you a letter to confirm once your super has been successfully transferred into your Colonial First State account.


    You can also check to see if you’re super has been consolidated using FirstNet.
