Are you going overseas? Having a baby? Taking some time out for yourself? Make sure your super's working even while you're not.
Be rewarded for adding to your super
If you earn less than $53,564 per year in the 2019-20 financial year you could be eligible for a government co-contribution of up to $500 when you make a personal contribution with your after-tax pay.
Pull together for a stronger financial future
Make contributions on behalf of your spouse (married, de facto or same sex) and you may receive a tax offset. This can be effective if one person has taken time out of their career to stay at home with children or care for a family member.
