Did you know that you can help your spouse build their own super by making extra contributions into a LUCRF Super account on their behalf?
This will help grow their super savings and provide a more comfortable lifestyle in retirement for you both. If you make a spouse contribution/s on behalf of a non-working or low-income earning spouse, you may also claim an 18% tax rebate on spouse contributions up to $3,000 per financial year. The maximum rebate per financial year is capped at $540.
To be eligible for a spouse rebate, your spouse must earn less than $13,800 for the financial year that the spouse contribution is made. If your spouse already has a LUCRF Super account your spouse contribution/s can be accepted immediately. If not, they will need to join LUCRF Super Personal Plan before any spouse contributions can be accepted.
A spouse includes your wife, husband or de-facto of same or different sex.
