Unpaid super is destroying Victorians’ retirement dreams

Victorian workers are robbed of more than $1.4 billion in unpaid superannuation a year, with the Melbourne, Cranbourne and Tarneit electorates the hardest hit.

New analysis of ATO data from 2016-17 by Industry Super Australia (ISA) has revealed the scope of the unpaid super scandal and the impact it has on eroding retirement nest eggs.

More than 800,000 Victorians have not received their legal super entitlement – almost one in three workers. On average the state’s workers are ripped off about $1,750 a year in super.
