GOVT TO PUSH SUPER OPTION TO YOUNG
The Federal Government is considering changes to superannuation to try to encourage young Australians to save more for their retirement.
The last Federal Budget included an overhaul of superannuation taxation which will come into effect this year.
The Assistant Treasurer, Peter Dutton, says the Government is consulting the superannuation industry about ways to target younger Australians.
"We need to be thinking about ways in which we can do that, how we can capture those people, particularly young people who might have capital gains out of property sales or share sales, or people who might be involved in the resource sector, who are earning bigger money than they'd ever imagined before," he said.
"They are the challenges and that's what we're thinking about at the moment."
