Currently, employers only need to make SG contributions to you if you are 18 years and older and are paid $450 or more (before tax) per calendar month.
The Government has announced it will remove the $450 per month income threshold and expects that, from 1 July 2022, Employers will be required to pay SG contributions to all eligible employees aged 18 or older, regardless of their income.
For example, if you currently have multiple part-time or casual jobs, each paying less than $450 per month, then you would not receive any SG contributions. From 1 July 2022, you will receive SG contributions from each employer, regardless of your monthly income.
Removing the $450 monthly earnings threshold is a positive step towards boosting retirement savings for disadvantaged individuals, most specifically women who are low-income earners.
