The superannuation (super) co-contribution is a government initiative to help eligible individuals boost their super savings for the future.
If you are a low or middle-income earner, you may be able to take advantage of the super co-contribution payment by making eligible personal super contributions to your super fund or retirement savings account (RSA). The government will then match your personal super contributions up to the maximum amount.
The maximum super co-contribution payable, and the way we work out this amount depend on the financial year in which you made your eligible personal super contributions.
You don't need to apply. If you're eligible, all you need to do is make eligible personal super contributions to your super fund or RSA and complete the A3 government super contribution labels in your income tax return.
For more information about current and previous rates and thresholds, refer to Co-contribution income thresholds.
