Superannuation and Retirement header image

Treasury is responsible for advising on broad features of retirement income policy, including the objectives, adequacy and overarching framework and design of the superannuation system.

Additionally, we are responsible for modelling and analysis of the impacts of government policy on household units as well as the public finance consequences of demographic trends and population ageing.

Superannuation Reforms

A number of superannuation reforms were announced as part of the 2016 Budget to improve sustainability, flexibility and integrity of the superannuation system.

For further information, visit the Super Reforms page.

In addition, now that these reforms have received royal assent, information about the changes and how they will be administered are available on the ATO's website.

MyRetirement framework

The MyRetirement framework is intended to increase individuals' standard of living in retirement, increase the range of retirement income products available, and empower trustees to provide members with an easier transition into retirement.

Through this framework, the Government is aiming to increase the efficiency of the superannuation system so it can better achieve the proposed objective of superannuation, which is to provide income in retirement to substitute or supplement the Age Pension.

For further information, visit the MyRetirement framework page.

Planning for Retirement

ASIC's MoneySmart website is a good source of information for individuals on our Superannuation system and planning for retirement.

As administrators of the super system, the ATO can help individuals understand super and work out how much you are entitled to from your employer. You can also use their online services to check, find and manage your super.
