Close the super gap

Close the super gap

Abolish the superannuation threshold to ensure more equity between men and women upon retirement.

Why is this important?

Women are more likely to be in insecure and casual work, therefore earning less super over their working life. They often don't reach the $450 super threshold to receive contributions, and women also receive 50% less super upon retirement.

It is also a startling fact that 70% of single women upon retirement become homeless due to this Super gap.
