My son died recently. No Will. How can I find out where his Superannuation is located?

Hi @WHoward

 

I'm so sorry for your loss. You've got a couple of options to obtain that information. You could submit a request for a deceased estate data package, which includes tax and super information. This requires you to have a grant of probate or letters of administration. Certified copies of these documents should be included in the request. A nominated legal practitioner can also make this request.

 

Another option is to submit a 'searching for lost super' form. This will result in a letter being sent to you with a list of known superfunds. You'll need to fill in your son's details in section A and then your contact details in section B. If you're signing the form, you'll need to include certified copies of either a grant of probate or letters of administration. 

 

I hope this was helpful. Please let us know if you have any questions or need any further help.
