A WORK TEST EXEMPTION FOR RETIREES
From 1 July 2019, people aged 65–74 who have a total superannuation balance of under $300,000 will be able to make voluntary contributions for 12 months from the end of the financial year when they last satisfied the work test.
WHAT THIS MEANS FOR YOU ?
This initiative will make it easier to keep contributing to super after you’ve left the workforce. For example, if you retire on 30 March 2020 and your super balance is below $300,000 on 30 June at the end of the year, you’ll still be able to make voluntary contributions during the 2020–21 financial year. The usual concessional and non-concessional contribution caps will still apply.
