How Super Works
Understanding Superannuation Contributions
It’s never too early to start thinking about your super. Superannuation, or ‘super’, is money saved now, for you to enjoy in your retirement.
Your employer should pay 9.5% of your salary into a super fund, through the Superannuation Guarantee (SG). You can also top up your super by making your own contributions, and where you are eligible the government may add to it through co-contributions and the low income super contribution. Different super contributions can make and/or save you money.
In this course, we’ll tell you why super is a smart way to save, the tax benefits, and how to put yourself in a strong financial position come retirement.
This course is designed for anyone looking to gain an excellent, practical knowledge of superannuation contributions. Sound intimidating? Don’t worry! This course is designed with complete beginners in mind. No previous personal finance knowledge (or math!) is required.
As for how this course is structured, we’ve designed it to maximise your enjoyment and engagement. That’s why we teach you an entire personal finance curriculum through a series of short, engaging videos. Each video teaches you everything you need to know (practically-speaking) about a specific topic, like superannuation, in a way that even a total beginner can understand.
