The super co-contribution is a payment made by the Australian Government into your super account to encourage you to save for retirement, and could make a difference to your retirement income.
The government will contribute 50 cents for each $1 you contribute, up to a maximum of $500 per year. To receive the maximum co-contribution, your total income1 must be no more than $34,488 in 2014/2015. The super co-contribution progressively reduces for incomes over these amounts.
