Superannuation is money regularly put into a fund that will be paid to the employee as a pension when they retire. Since 1 July 2014, employers must put a minimum of 9.5 per cent of each eligible employee’s earnings into a super fund (or retirement savings account). The 9.5 per cent rate will remain until 30 June 2021.
