The women's money toolkit has tips and tools to help you manage your money, gain an edge on your finances and deal with life's ups and downs.

The No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) provides individuals and families on low incomes with access to safe, fair and affordable credit.


Superannuation

You may have lost track of some of your super if you have changed your name, address, job or lived overseas. Having several super accounts could mean multiple fees and charges are reducing your overall super investment.

You can check your super accounts through the Australian Tax Office.
