Learn five simple ways you can grow your super and get on track to achieving the lifestyle you want in retirement. The good news is it's easier than you think.

Most wage and salary earners already receive super payments from their employer through Superannuation Guarantee (SG) contributions. Those payments, which are currently 9.5% of ordinary income, can go a long way towards building a lump sum to help fund your retirement.

But there are other ways to put money into your super including from your pre-tax salary (sometimes called salary sacrifice), your after-tax income, or as a spouse contribution. Your LGIAsuper Accumulation account is flexible, so you can make regular payments or lump sum contributions – with no entry or exit fees.

Salary sacrifice

By arranging with your employer to pay extra into super you could pay less income tax and help your super grow faster.
