At Rest, we’re strong supporters of giving every member a Fair Play when it comes to their retirement savings.

On average, women in their early sixties retire with around 28% less super than their male co-workers.^

There are several factors that may contribute to women retiring with less than men, from long periods out of the work force, to many women working part-time or casual hours. In fact, last year women accounted for 87%* of primary carers leave used.

The majority of Rest’s members are women, and given the obstacles many women face, Rest is a strong supporter of helping to educate our members on the ways they can help even the score and create a more equitable retirement.

This year, in recognition of International Women’s Day, we’re holding an online event that has been tailored to help members learn more about super through the specific stages of a woman’s life.
