Salary sacrifice (before-tax) contributions

You may sacrifice salary into super from your before-tax pay and benefit from some tax advantages.

Learn more about salary sacrificing into super and how you might benefit.

Personal (after-tax) contributions

You can top up your super account with your after-tax pay. If you’re considered to earn a low income, you may also benefit from some of the Government incentives to save into super.

To make a one-off personal contribution

You can top up your super account at any time by making a personal contribution with your after-tax money. If you earn less than $48,516, you may also benefit from Government co-contributions.
