Hello Fools
I wasn't sure what other board to put this on so I thought someone here might know and it doesn't look like fool.com.au even has discussion boards. Basically I just got married a couple months ago and my wife's superannuity account seems terrible but I don't know how to get the money out. I took the money out of my 401k to invest myself, though I don't see any similar option for superannuities.

The only thing I see is the self managed supers which seem to require too much money in audits and everything for the relatively meager amount in her super account. Is there a method whereby she can withdraw the money in her super to put it into an american IRA or is there something similar that won't have a huge drain in fees to manage the money?

Thanks!
