A range of key changes to superannuation came into effect from 1 July 2023. We’ve pulled together a summary of some that might affect you.
The rate of compulsory super that employers must pay eligible workers rose from 10.5% to 11% from 1 July 2023. Under the current legislated timetable, the Super Guarantee (SG) rate will continue to rise incrementally by 0.5% each financial year to 12% by 1 July 2025.

From 1 July 2023 members with an Income account could be getting more money each pay following the Australian Government’s decision to increase minimum superannuation drawdown rates. The change reverts minimum drawdown rates back to the levels they were at before COVID-19 emerged in early 2020.
The Queensland Government has made some important changes to employee and employer super contributions, which took effect from 1 July 2023. Among the changes are that many people who work for the Government can now choose how much of their pay they put into super voluntarily.
The Retirement Bonus is one feature of our award-winning products designed to help you retire well with confidence. It’s a payment that you might receive when you open our Retirement Income account or buy a Lifetime Pension. The changes from 1 July have created a single Retirement Bonus design that’s the same for all Australian Retirement Trust members.
