How To Boost Your Super Before Rule Changes Kick In

An interesting summary of the superannuation changes in the Australian news this week:

With the federal government’s draft legislation on the proposed changes to superannuation now released to the market, there is no time to wait for people approaching retirement who want to boost their superannuation.

Boost your super

With the proposed cuts in the concessional super caps, employees in particular have to act now if they want to take advantage of higher salary sacrifice opportunities available this financial year.

At the moment, people 49 and over can put as much as $35,000 in a year into their super on a concessional basis (including the compulsory 9.5 per cent super guarantee contributions). The figures goes down to $25,000 a year for people of all ages from July 1.

From July 1 the post-tax super contribution cap goes down from $180,000 a year to $100,000. And when the total amount in super hits $1.6 million, no more post-tax contributions can be made at all.

Planning for your retirement with your superannuation and 'outside super' assets is important to always keep an eye on.

Professor Rodney Maddock of the Australian Centre for Financial Studies said : “Australians are living longer, living larger portions of their life in retirement and spending more in retirement, so we need to be well-placed to ensure fulfilling, adequately-funded retirements.”
