Employers are generally required to contribute 10% of their employees’ ordinary time earnings into super. These are known as superannuation guarantee (SG) contributions.
SG contributions are employer contributions. They are generally taxed at up to 15%1 in the fund and count towards your concessional contribution cap.
The 10% is legislated to increase by 0.5% each year financial year until it reaches 12% from 1 July 2025.
SG contributions can grow, along with earnings, to a sizeable sum of money over time. But you may still need more to achieve the lifestyle you want. To see whether you’re on track to funding your desired lifestyle, use our Retirement forecaster.
