^You may be taxed on your super withdrawal, depending on your age when you make the withdrawal.
There are things that you can do today to increase your super for retirement:
- FIND LOST SUPER. There are millions of ‘lost’ super accounts in Australia worth billions of dollars. Some of this could be your money. Crescent Wealth offers a complimentary service to help you get your lost super back and combined into your Crescent Wealth Super account. Call us today on 1300 926 626 and talk to one of our Super specialists to avail of this complimentary service.
- CONSOLIDATE/COMBINE all your super accounts to avoid paying multiple sets of fees and charges that over a lifetime may total thousands of dollars. This could be valuable when you retire. You can do this online or ask us on how to do it and we will gladly walk you through the process over the phone. There are some things you should consider before deciding whether to consolidate your super, such as whether there are any fees for consolidating (e.g. exit fees) or other loss of benefits (e.g. insurance).
- YOUR CONTRIBUTIONS STRATEGY. It may be possible to make extra contributions to super from your pre-tax salary through salary sacrifice and take advantage of super’s 15%* concessional contributions tax rate. Remember that there is a limit on the amount of pre-tax contributions you can make to your super each financial year. If you contribute more than the limit allowed, you will pay additional tax on your excess contributions.
- TAKE ADVANTAGE OF GOVERNMENT INCENTIVES for example if you are eligible for co-contributions and spouse contributions, this could be a great way to add to your super balance.
