Using the free Governement money to make more free government money!!!

    Recommended Posts

    Just thought that this may be something worth considering.


    This is an example of how people eligible to receive the $900 government stimulus payment may be able to utilise this to create more free government money.


    For those not aware, there is a Government Co-contribution available for certain workers earning under a certain amount.


    This co-contribution is paid as a tax free payment in to a person's Superannuation fund if they are one of these workers that meet the criteria and have made a voluntary payment in to there Super fund.


    So for example if somebody is earning under $30,342 and contibuted there $900 government payout in to there Super fund the Government would then add as a co-contribution $1,350 so a total of $2,250 free government money!!


    This co-contribution is available to people earning up to $60,342 but reduces on a sliding scale.


    So another example would be for someone earning $50,000, the maximum co-contribution they would receive would be $517 but they would only need make a voluntary contribution of $345 to get this.


    So maybe something worth considering if eligible.


    (Sorry to be boring but of course this is only generic information and not advice).
