When i again check after 28 days.it showed super withdrawing pending.Now, again I check, it says no balance.It does not have  ATO withheld super. My super is lost. Why is this happening?I have still proof of the estimated release proof pdf page?No email in my gov inbox regarding super.

Hi @Khem2036,

 

It's pretty likely the cheque your payment was sent in was delayed due to the COVID19 postal delays. However, since it has been an extended period of time it may be a good idea to contact us to look into getting another cheque sent out. You can contact our overseas line and ask to be transferred to our superannuation area. The number is available on our contact us page under Overseas Enquiries - General. 

 

Hope this helps.

It can not be through cheque because i have not requested through cheque payment in my GOV account.I have rquested to transfer into nomianted australian bank account,as per the provision in the online withdraw system of ATO-Held super.Still, i have the pdf file of Withdrawl requested reference number and super amount.When request for cheque payment has not been made,how can cheque payment be made?

Hi Khem2036,

 

Did you hear back from ATO? I am facing a similar issue. I applied to withdraw ATO held super using ATO in mygov account 2 days. It showed that it will process in 28 days but now when I check it I can't see it. The fund has moved into closed accounts and I haven't received any notification from ATO/MyGov

Oh ok. Mine is showing withdrawl pending in Mygov account. I have also transferred into my nominated australian bank account. It says pending will be processed in 28 days. Let's see. Have you called ATO?
