Spouse contributions are a great way to grow your partner’s savings so you can both enjoy a better lifestyle in retirement.
What are spouse contributions?
Spouse contributions are any amounts of money paid into your account by your spouse, or money you pay into your spouse’s account on their behalf.
What are the benefits?
Making a spouse contribution can boost your partner’s retirement savings. This is particularly helpful if your spouse has had time out of the workforce as they may have had long periods of time without any super contributions.
You could also receive a tax offset of up to $540 on the first $3,000 of contributions if your spouse earns less than $13,800 each year.
Can I open an LGIAsuper account for my spouse?
Absolutely. Opening an LGIAsuper Accumulation account for your partner is easy. Here’s how:
- Read the Accumulation account PDS.
- Open an LGIAsuper Accumulation account:
- apply online (takes less than 10 minutes)
- complete and return the New spouse member information form (at the back of the Accumulation account PDS)
You can then make spouse contributions into their account and vice versa.
