  • Employers will need to pay super to employees who earn less than $450 per month, provided they meet other eligibility requirements.
  • For employees under 18 years old, they will be eligible for super if they work more than 30 hours in a week, regardless of how much they’re paid.
  • The maximum super contribution base increases from $58,920 per quarter to $60,220 per quarter.
  • The SG opt-out income threshold will change from $275,00 to $261,905
