It is estimated that $AUD15 Billion of Aussie Super is sitting in lost or unclaimed accounts and approximately 25% of these funds potentially belong to New Zealander’s who have returned home.
Legislation is being introduced in 2009 that will allow Kiwi’s to repatriate their Australian super funds back to their New Zealand KiwiSaver account.
Thorners can help you track down your lost Super Australian Super funds. Just email us your Australian tax file number, full name, date of birth and address and we will see what we can find and give you some options for transferring it back. Transfers won’t be possible until the new Australian legislation becomes law.
