Superannuation

Superannuation is one of the best investment vehicles used to accumulate funds during a working lifetime, and ensures Australians self fund their own retirement and be able to live in the lifestyle that they desire.

 

Over the course of your working life, contributions add up and your super money is invested by your super fund or yourself (self-managed super fund), so it grows over time. To be financially secure in retirement, it is better to plan and start saving sooner rather than later.

 

How Superannuation Works

 

  • Your employer contributes a minimum of 9.5% of your annual salary into your nominated superannuation account.

  • Contribution and earnings in superannuation will be taxed at a maximum of 15% after deducting expenses such as life insurance premium and account fees and charges.

  • Balance in superannuation will be used to make investments and/or pay for life insurance policy. All profits and net contributions will grow inside of superannuation account.

  • Superannuation savings cannot be accessed until you reach a condition of release. In most cases, this is when you retire after passing preservation age.

  • On retirement (or part retirement) after individual’s preservation age, the superannuation fund transfers its investments to pension phase.  In pension phase any profits made from the investments are no longer taxed.

  • Pension account can pay either a lump sum or a regular amount with major tax advantages to your retirement. If you are over age 60, pension income is tax free to individual tax payer.
