Superannuation, or super as most of us know it, is a good long-term savings plan, which will provide you with an income when you retire. For many Australians, super will be their main form of retirement income.
During your working life you make contributions to your super fund and the earnings you receive are reinvested, building up the value over time. The money that you put into your super fund must generally stay there until you reach retirement, or when you begin your transition to retirement, both after a set minimum age. As contributions to your super fund and their earnings are generally taxed at just 15%, this makes super one of the most tax-effective investment vehicles. Sometimes the government will add to your super through co-contributions and the low income super contribution.
