Correspondence: Super and carbon emissions

One member asks about super contributions, while another takes a closer look at carbon emissions.

I am unsure if there is an upper age limit for people over 60 making the $35,000 per annum concessional contribution to super. Can a 76 year-old employee who works 30 hours a week make this contribution or is he/she only permitted the 9.25% compulsory super paid in by the employer?


Max Newnham’s response: Thanks for your question. Once an individual is age 75 years or over they can only receive the benefit of compulsory employer superannuation contributions.
