What to do if your employer is not paying your super
You can check if your employer is paying you enough super, on time and into your chosen super fund. These details are on your pay advice, and in your myGov account. You can also ask your employer’s payroll team or contact us for help.
If you think your employer isn't paying you enough super, you should:
- Check you meet the above criteria to receive super.
- Make sure you know the award or agreement covering your role. Check if there are any extra terms to your super under your award.
- Work out how much super you should receive. You can use the Australian Tax Office’s estimate my super tool.
- Ask your employer if they are paying you super, how much, and what super fund they are paying it into.
- Let your employer know they paid your super incorrectly. If you are concerned, you can report your employer to the Australian Tax Office.
What happens to your super when you change jobs?
When you start a new job, you can take your Aware Super account with you. You will need to give your new employer your Aware Super details so they can pay into your account. You may have more than one super account. Your super will be paid to the account your employer finds through the ATO’s online system.
