When was the last time you had an employer contribute to your super for you? If you can’t remember, how about the last time you contributed to your super yourself?
If you’ve been outside the workforce for maternity leave or other unpaid work such as looking after a partner or elderly parent, or simply decided to work casually or part-time, your super has most likely taken a big hit.
Super contributions aren’t often at the top of the priority list and we don’t think much about its implications now. There are already so many competing priorities as we’re trying to make ends meet.
It’s important to know that we’re all on the same boat – unfortunately. Most Australian women find themselves in the same situation. It’s a systemic injustice. Put simply, the super system was not designed for women:
The reality is that if you don’t think about it until late into your forties, there isn’t enough time to accrue enough. Starting today will have a significant impact on how much you end up with in 25-30 years.
