Super helpful information

How government co-contributions work

Adding to your super now will help your super savings work harder and could add up to a lot more later.


  • how much you earn, and
  • how much you decide to contribute to your super, from your take-home pay
  • have a total income less than $58,445 before tax in the 2023-24 financial year. To be eligible for the maximum co-contribution, your total income must be $43,445 or less. Total income includes your assessable income, reportable fringe benefits, and reportable super contributions (e.g. salary sacrifice)
  • earn 10% or more of that income from employment or self-employment
  • have a total superannuation balance of less than $1.7 million at the start of the financial year
  • have not exceeded the after-tax contributions cap 
  • are a permanent resident of Australia for the 2023-24 full financial year
  • lodge a tax return for the 2023-24 financial year
  • are less than 71 years of age at the end of the financial year, which is 30 June 2024

You don’t need to apply or fill out any forms. Once you’ve made your super contribution, you’ll then need to lodge your tax return after the end of the financial year. The ATO will determine if you are eligible and will then automatically pay a co-contribution into your account.

Make sure your tax file number is linked to your Aware Super account.

Save on tax and save more for your first home.

The Government’s First Home Super Saver (FHSS) scheme is designed to help you save a deposit for your first home faster. You can add to your super by making your own extra voluntary contributions on top of what your employer pays. You can make before-tax contributions like salary sacrifice, or personal after-tax contributions.

Using the First Home Super Saver Scheme (FHSSS) you may be eligible to use the super system to grow your deposit faster by saving on tax. It works by allowing you to make voluntary before-tax contributions into your super which are taxed at 15%, which is generally lower than your income tax rate, which can be as high as 45%, plus the Medicare and other applicable levies. When you’re ready to buy, you can take the money out of your super.

Helping you understand market ups and downs

There is a lot of noise about inflation and market volatility right now, so it's natural you have questions, and want to feel more confident about your super and where it’s headed.

You might have questions about how we invest your money? What impact do external factors like inflation have... (or, what even is inflation?) What are my investments doing, and do I need to switch? We want to make understanding market ups and downs - and super - effortlessly simple, so here’s the important bits you need to know.

Find out more

Everyone's situation is different, and we can't tell you whether you should add to your balance as we haven't considered your financial situation. So, before making additional contributions, you should consider your own personal circumstances and if this is the right thing for you.
