  • Calculating your super co-contribution

    The minimum co-contribution payment is $20. Payment amounts are rounded up to the nearest multiple of five cents.

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

    You can use our super co-contribution calculator to estimate your co-contribution entitlement and eligibility.

    Example

    In 2019–20, Angelo will earn $35,000. He pays $40 per fortnight from his take-home pay into his super account. This will total $1,040 for the financial year. He meets all other co-contribution eligibility requirements.

    With this payment plan, Angelo will be eligible for the maximum co-contribution of $500.

    We will pay this amount into Angelo's super account between November 2019 and January 2020.
