Will my super account remain open if I’m not receiving employer contributions?
Your First Super account will remain open, even if you are not working, unless your balance is below $6,000 and in the past 16 months none of the following events have taken place:
- No contributions were received into your super account; and
- You haven’t changed your insurance cover, switched investments, made or amended a binding beneficiary nomination on your account, or completed an ATO declaration form.
If your account meets the above criteria, it will be transferred to the Australian Taxation Office. Learn how to keep your super account active.
