SUPERANNUATION REFUND FAQ
AM I ENTITLED TO A SUPER REFUND?
If you worked in Australia on a working holiday visa, student visa or 457 visa and had superannuation paid into your designated fund, you are entitled to claim back a portion of this amount when you leave Australia and your visa has expired.
HOW MUCH DO I GET BACK?

WHAT DO I NEED?
- Name of nominated superannuation funds
- Superannuation fund account number/s
- Certified copy of your passport photo page
- A copy of your Visa details
If you do not know your superannuation fund details contact your previous employers who will be able to provide these.
