Unpaid super from a previous employer: If you see an SG voucher credit, it probably represents unpaid superannuation from a former employer. This happens when an employer fails to meet their super obligations for an employee

The ATO recouped the shortfall: The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) identified the shortfall and recovered it from the employer. This recovered amount, including interest, is then paid to your super fund on your behalf.

Here’s what you can do:

No action required: You don’t necessarily need to take any specific action. The money is already deposited into your super account.
Consider choosing a super fund: If you don’t have a preferred super fund, you can use this opportunity to choose one and consolidate your super.
