Whether you are working full time, part time or casual, your employer is legally required pay superannuation guarantee (SG) contribution of 11% of your ordinary time earnings (OTE).
The only exception is if you’re under 18 years of age. In this case you’re only eligible for SG contributions if you work more than 30 hours in a week.
SG contributions are made from your before-tax income and will generally be disclosed on your payslip along with your income and any tax withheld.
Increases to the super guarantee
The SG contributions rate will be increasing gradually in successive years until it reaches 12% on 1 July 2025.
|2025/26 and beyond||12%|
