Bonus: Superannuation Explainer

Ever wondered how something about Australian government or politics worked, or saw a hot button topic on the news that you wanted to know more about?  Along with our regular episodes, we’re going to drop the occasional explainer episode into the mix, to cover off random questions you either didn’t know you had, or you didn’t know who to ask. Today’s explainer episode is on superannuation, and the changes to the tax treatment of superannuation accounts over $3 million that the Albanese government recently announced.

If you’re a younger person who knows nothing about super, or an older person who feels like they should know about super but don’t, this is a gap in your knowledge you really need to fill, and we’re going to do our best to make this interesting for you.
