May 2022

On July 1 there will be some significant changes to superannuation that may impact you. These government reforms, along with some other recent changes, are outlined in a recorded webinar hosted by Lisa Judge, Active Super’s Member Advice and Education Manager.

We have a report on the different ways people engage with their super over a lifetime – from the start of a career to the pre-retirement years – and we offer a few ways to think about each milestone decade. There is also a significant event notice in response to legislative changes which have seen the Fund’s Trust Deed amended.
