Increase in under payments for superannuation around region

Superannuation under payments are rife in Central Victoria with more than one thousand six hundred workers missing out in the Bendigo East and Bendigo West electorates.

Industry Super Australia has crunched the tax office numbers saying the average amount unpaid workers are missing out on is around fourteen dollars a year.

Industry Super Australia chief executive Bernie Dean has told The Bendigo Advertiser that unpaid super as a "recurring nightmare" for workers in regional centres like Bendigo.

Mr Dean said regional centres were often hit hardest because employment conditions were less certain, with low paid work, precarious employment frequent.
