Super co-contribution

Super co-contribution aims to 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 also makes a contribution (called a co-contribution) up to a maximum amount of $500.

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

When you lodge a 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.
