Each workplace will have a different super fund for their employees. When starting a new job you can choose which fund your money goes to, but you have to tell your employer. Otherwise they will pay it into the fund that they want to. This is called a default super fund.
So, chances are that if you have had a number of different jobs, you will have more than one superannuation fund. Below are some reasons why it's better to only have one fund instead of many different ones.

Options to Find Your Super
Ask your current fund
Your current fund will be able to help you locate other super from previous jobs. Once it’s found they will add it to your current balance. If you’re not sure who your current fund is, simply have a talk to the payroll team at your workplace.
