  • Super co-contribution

    Super co-contributions help eligible people boost their retirement savings.

    If you're a low or middle-income earner and make personal (after-tax) contributions to your super fund, the government may also make a contribution (called a co-contribution) up to a maximum amount of $500.

    The amount of government co-contribution you receive depends on your income and how much you contribute.

    You don't need to apply for the super co-contribution. When you lodge your tax return, we will work out if you're eligible. If the super fund has your tax file number (TFN) we will pay it to your super account automatically.

    The way your co-contribution is calculated depends on the financial year in which you made your personal super contributions.
