There’s more than one way to build your super through extra contributions. Depending on your situation, you can choose to put a little extra into your super before or after tax.

After-tax contributions

After-tax contributions

After-tax contributions are extra payments you can make from the money you’ve already paid tax on, like your take-home salary. You could also qualify for government co-contributions, depending on certain eligibility criteria such as your annual income.
