a total of $2,259 billion in Superannuation assets What problems are people having with Super funds? Underperformance Multiple accounts High fees

Exit fees make moving funds unattractive These factors can lead to a significant difference in Superannuation amount when a person retires Productivity Report on Superannuation Source: Financial Review What problems are people having with Super funds?

How is the Government helping us? Fees cap (2018 Budget) No exit fees (2018 Budget) No automatic life insurance for customers under 25 (2018 Budget)

Will put duplicate superfunds into one account (2018 Budget) First Home buyer Scheme (2017 Budget) House Downsizing Scheme (2017 Budget) How is the Government helping us? Fees cap (2018 Budget) Super funds with balances below $6,000 will have their administration fees restricted to 3% p.a. of the fund balance

How is the Government helping us? No exit fees (2018 Budget) Exit fees on super funds will be abolished, giving customers greater choice of super funds without costs for transfers How is the Government helping us? No automatic life insurance for customers under 25 (2018 Budget) Members of super funds who are under age 25 will no longer have automatic Life and Total Permanent Disability cover placed into the super funds as a default

Members under age 25 can opt-into this insurance if they want This will mean there are fewer compulsory fees for customers under 25 How is the Government helping us? Will put duplicate superfunds into one account (2018 Budget) Members with a super account with a balance less than $6,000 which has not received a contribution after 13 months will

automatically have their funds reunited into active super funds How is the Government helping us? Source: ATO How is the Government helping us? Source: ATO How is the Government helping us? First Home buyer Scheme (2017 Budget) Up to $30,000 may be put voluntarily into superannuation, thus reducing an individuals tax

Up to $15,000 can be contributed to the scheme each year There is a lower tax rate for putting money into superannuation versus being given wages as normal income Most first home buyers will only pay in total 19c/$1.00 or 24c/$1.00 tax in this scheme, rather than 34c/$1.00 or 39c/$1.00 on their wage

How is the Government helping us? First Home buyer Scheme (2017 Budget) There is no time limit, so contributions can grow at the Bank Bill rate plus 3% p.a. and be withdrawn as part of the deposit for the home, so the deposit could grow beyond $30,000 over time When making voluntary super contributions, you do not need to specify the money is for the First Home Buyers Super scheme Note: the compulsory superannuation guarantee of 9.5% does not

count towards the scheme How is the Government helping us? House Downsizing Scheme (2017 Budget) Allows people aged 65 and over who have sold their principal residence to contribute all or part of the sale proceeds to their superannuation Applies to properties sold from 1 July 2018 (date contracts exchanged)

Properties must have been owned by the person for at least 10 years prior to sale How is the Government helping us? House Downsizing Scheme (2017 Budget) Each person may contribute up to $300,000 from the sale of their home to their super fund ($600,000 for couples) There are no contribution taxes on entry into the super fund or on withdrawal

The scheme allows retirees to build up their investments to improve their standard of living in retirement using their current superannuation scheme Applies to properties sold from 1 July 2018 (date contracts exchanged) Women and Superannuation In 2017, it was revealed that women have significantly lower Superannuation balances than men Women and Superannuation

Average superannuation balance in 2016: $68,000 for women and $112,000 for men Average superannuation balance for those retiring in 2016: $157,000 for women and $271,000 for men However, today we see womens greater involvement in the workforce, which should help fix this disparity Why is the Government helping us? Long term cost of Australians not having sufficient superannuation when they retire will be a huge drain on Australias welfare system How can Australians use their Super effectively before retirement?

First Home Buyer Scheme (previously discussed) House Downsizing Scheme (previously discussed) Salary Sacrificing Transition to Retirement

Salary Sacrificing Salary Sacrificing your own wages into Super as pre-tax contributions results in only 15% tax on entry into your super fund For most employees this will create a net saving of 19c/$1 or 24c/$1 tax on these super contributions The amount contributed along with employer contributions (SGC) can only add to a maximum of $25,000 per financial year

to avoid excess tax Transition to Retirement This is a strategy to draw an income from your super fund after you reach your preservation age but you are still working The strategy allows you to draw a partly taxed income that can mean you will be able to Salary Sacrifice a greater amount into super to lower your normal income tax rate on your wage

The net result is lower total income tax and greater super savings The disadvantage is that these contributions can only be accessed after retirement as a lump sum or to derive an income from these investments Conclusion on the Evolution of Superannuation in Australia The initial aim of the Compulsory Super Contribution System that started in 1992 was to provide sufficient assets to live off in retirement

This Compulsory Super System now has morphed into many other objectives: Providing a tax saving vehicle for employees during their working lives Providing a low cost-investment vehicle for employee savings in a heavily regulated and competitive environment

Providing insurance cover for death, permanent and temporary disablement Conclusion on the Evolution of Superannuation in Australia Provide access to a lump sum in the case of a terminal illness Provide a tax free income for retirement from age 60 Provide lump sums during retirement for purchasing cars,

houses, renovations, sickness and travel Provide beneficiaries with a legacy lump sum on death Provide a low cost investment vehicle with tax advantages for retirees if they want to downsize their house and have funds to invest Topic 2 The Economics of Downsizing Your Home

Ageing Population In Australia, we are seeing an increase in people over 65 years. In 1996, 2.1 million or 12% of Australians were over 65 In 2016, 3.7 million or 15% of Australians were over 65 By 2056, its predicted that 8.7 million or 22% of Australians will be over 65!

Ageing Population Australia has seen a 76% increase in people over 65 between 1996 and 2016 Source: ABS Budget 2017/18 Due to the ageing population, from 2018/19 the Government will provide an additional 14,000 home care packages, a further 13,500 residential aged care places and 775 restorative aged care places

The Government will establish a new Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission from 1 January 2019 to regulate the quality of care in Aged Care facilities Retirement Living Code of Conduct Currently a new national Retirement Living Code of Conduct is being created to set high quality national standards Public comment is currently being sought for the draft version of the code

Currently the Commonwealth and each State/Territory have their own legislations, so the code is set to establish a common set of quality standards for all retirement communities to use Once the Code is finalised, retirement communities will be encouraged to sign up to commit to these standards Downsizing For Australians considering downsizing the family home, there are different types of accommodation options depending on a retirees age and needs.
