Not so super, for women: superannuation and women’s retirement outcomes

29 Jul 2017 5:27 PM | Jean Murray (Administrator)

Per Capita released their research report into superannuation and women’s retirement outcomes this month which reveals women’s average superannuation balances at retirement are less than half of men’s.  

The recommendations at the end of the Not So Super report include a superannuation contribution on top of the carer payment for all carers (male and female) below the accumulation pathway; and a superannuation contribution at the prevailing SGC rate for the government’s paid parental leave scheme.  This second recommendation aligns with the BPW Australia resolution passed by the 2013 National Conference.
