The Government released its federal Budget on Tuesday, 14th May. We have prepared a fact sheet outlining the main super changes proposed in the Budget along with a commentary on how those changes may impact AvSuper members. The impact for you While the Budget doesn’t contain a lot of changes to superannuation, the proposed changes may have a significant effect on some members. The scope of the proposed changes is such that different groups of members are likely to be impacted in different ways so it is important to review the Budget, and the related legislation as things progress, in line with your personal situation. Before making major decisions about your super and/or retirement income stream, please remember these changes are not yet law and may well be altered and delayed. We suggest you get personalised advice from our Member Advice Consultants to better understand your options and their implications.
