According to an article in the Canberra Times, military superannuation will potentially affected by audit commission recommendations (assuming they’re taken on). In the line of fire is their 16% super payment by the Govt for the first 6 years of service.
I have always questioned why a government would set one amount to be paid by employers and then pay a higher amount to their own staff. Perhaps realigning super APS wide – to the contribution requirement – would be an idea? Or, alternatively increasing employer super contribution for those not blessed with APS benefits?
