Lost Australian Superannuation.

Lost superannuation most often occurs after the member left service or changed jobs. There is a possibility that your previous Employer paid some of your super well after you left service, and the payment got lost.

Losing superannuation contributions.

Compulsory super contributions were most often paid in time to meet the Super Guarantee Legislation. This may have been after the date that you had already transferred your known super balance to another employer's fund. As a consequence the superannuation fund to which the final contributions were sent may have been unable to accept the money.

Have you ever requested your new Employer to send your contributions to your previous Employer's superfund ? If so, that fund may not have been able to accept those contributions because your new Employer was not the specific sponsoring employer who arranged the fund.

So, your contributions may have been returned and may have ended up in a lost super account.
