Should I make voluntary contributions to my super?

As you plan for retirement, one question that is likely to come up is whether you should contribute more to your superannuation or invest outside. The answer to this question is not straightforward! Of course, like all investing, it depends on various factors, including your retirement goals, income level, and tax implications. We explore the arguments for both options to help you make an informed decision.

First question you need to answer is: when do you plan to step back from working? The current preservation age is 65. If you want to stop working before that age, you’ll need access to other finances. We then run through all the different questions and considerations for both arguments, and Bryce share our own strategies.
