    2. Each beneficiary is only counted once regardless of the number of entitlements received for the financial year.
    3. The total amount recovered includes all amounts overpaid as a result of a subsequent amendment to an individual’s income tax assessment or a change to the superannuation contributions reported for that individual.
    4. Both the total amount of Government Co-contributions determined and the total amount recovered are rounded up to the next whole $1,000.
