Superannuation and retirement income policy

About our superannuation and retirement income policy course

Many countries have retirement pension schemes that are supported by government incentives, monitored by government authorities and provided with taxation benefits. Australia’s system is called superannuation.

The Australian superannuation system is a tax effective means of putting aside money during your working life for use in retirement.

As we commemorate 30 years since the introduction of compulsory employer contributions, what does the history of superannuation in Australia look like?

Examine how super regulation and products have evolved, what current issues are shaping retirement income policy, and what industry developments are on the horizon, including the newly legislated retirement income covenant.
