Could you qualify for a Government co-contribution of up to $500?

If you earn under $58,445 in the financial year ended 30 June 2024, the Government can chip in up to $500 to help boost your super when you make a voluntary non-concessional (after-tax) contribution to your TWUSUPER account. This is known as the Super Co-contribution Scheme.

How much could you get?

If you meet the criteria, how much the Government co-contributes depends on two things:

  1. How much you earn
  2. How much you contribute
