Government co-contribution calculator

The government co-contribution scheme is designed to help eligible low or middle-income earners gain a boost to their super savings from the government.

If your annual total income is below $58,445 for the 2023-2024 financial year, and you make an after-tax personal contribution to your super and meet other eligibility criteria, the government can add up to $500* to your super for that financial year. For more information about eligibility visit the ATO’s website.

*The maximum $500 co-contribution for a financial year applies when your total income is equal to or less than the lower income threshold ($43,445 for the 2023-24 financial year) and you make an after-tax contribution of $1000. The amount of the government co-contribution reduces by 3.333 cents for every dollar you earn above the lower income threshold, until you reach the higher income threshold ($58,445 for the 2023-24 financial year). You will not receive any government co-contribution if your total income is equal to or greater than the higher income threshold.
