Contribution splitting allows you and your partner to share your super so that lower-income, or non-working, spouses can build up their retirement savings.
Contributions that can be split include:
You can split your contributions with your spouse if they’re:
- Under their preservation age
- Between their preservation age and 65 but have not yet retired.
Contribution splitting is available to:
- Married couples
- People in de facto relationships (including same sex partners).
Contribution splitting only applies to future contributions, not to existing balances. You can request to split contributions once a year.
If all this seems a little complicated, remember our Member Services team can talk you through contribution splitting and answer all of your questions. Just call them on 1300 65 18 65.
