Superannuation

Current Superannuation guarantee rate is - 9.5%

Super or Superannuation is a government scheme designed to help Australians to save for their retirement. For most people superannuation begins when you start work and your employer starts paying super for you - these payments are known as super guarantee contributions or concessional contributions.

You need to earn more than $450 per month (before tax) and be between 18 and 69 years old (inclusive) to be eligible for superannuation guarantee contributions from your employer. It doesn't matter whether you're full time, part time or casual, and it doesn't matter if you're a temporary resident of Australia.

Superannuation Guarantee Rate

Until recently if you're eligible for super guarantee contributions employer had to pay a minimum of 9% of your ordinary time earnings. Payments must be paid into your chosen Superannuation Fund at least every three months. However from the 1 July, 2013 Superannuation guarantee rate will increase gradually until it reach 12% by 2025-2026 financial year.
