Mastering Your Financial Future: How to Navigate Australian Superannuation as a New Citizen

Superannuation, commonly referred to as “super,” is a retirement savings system in Australia that is compulsory for most employees. Under this system, employers are required by law to contribute a percentage of their employees’ earnings into a superannuation fund, which is managed by a professional fund manager. Employees may also make voluntary contributions to their superannuation fund.

The purpose of superannuation is to provide Australians with a source of income in retirement. The money is invested by professional fund managers in a range of assets, such as shares, property and bonds, with the goal of growing the balance over time.

Superannuation is designed to be a long-term investment and access to the funds is restricted until retirement age or certain other specified circumstances, such as experiencing severe financial hardship or being diagnosed with a terminal illness.
