I had no idea where my lost super was or the names of the funds. I just new it was scattered everywhere and I should definitely have more than $3,000 in my super. Australian Super Finder found all 7 of my funds and now my balance is almost $50,000. Thank you so much for getting my super back on track. ? Leonie, Thomastown VIC

Super Facts and Tips

My Partner Takes Care Our Finances; Should I Still Opt For Super?

Since the 1950s, the world we live has changed considerably, but if you are woman and over 50 years old, you were perhaps part the "princess generation" — your mom, or dad, inculcated in your mind that the term was to marry (to a good-looking prince) and then he would take care of you, and take care of the finances.

It was not that long ago that women could not get a bank credit without a male, or commence an industry without a male, or be taken notice of unless a man was backing her opinion. For instance, I have a woman friend in her 40s who was refused to grant a loan in her 20s because she could get pregnant.

If you have kids and have briefly stopped working, you could've passed over the monetary control to your husband because he's earning the salary (see monkey eleven). In numerous relationships, the common practice is to share the household's responsibilities for ease or to suit every partner's strengths. A lot of women are the portfolio managers in homes with regards to budgeting and bills, however from my numerous conversations with the ladies, a lot more males than females take care of the family savings (if any), though this traditional division of roles has been gradually changing in modern times.

What to Do if You’re Not Involved in Your Family’s Investments and Finances

If you aren't involved in the investments or finances of your family, I recommend that you inquire the questions below to your spouse/partner.
• What are our super funds' names?
• How much cash do we possess in our super accounts?
• How much payment do my boss and yours contribute annually?
• How much debt (credit card) do we have?
• Do we have some unpaid household bills?
• How much are we in debt on our house loan, as well other loans?
• How's our superannuation plan going?

If your partner can't answer these inquiries, then I recommend that you take the interest in your finances as well as your future financial security. You can start by opting for the advice of our experts at www.australiansuperfinder.com.au. You can also call us at 1300 252 167
