The questions that count

Can simplifying super make it stronger?

Jun 19, 2012


Matt Linden believes the Government’s latest changes will make super simpler, accessible and more relevant for those who’ve taken their eye off the ball.

Because super is compulsory and locked away until retirement, most of us assume it will be there when we need it and focus our financial attention on the here and now.
