Feb 20, 2017, 09:44 AM by Beth Doherty

Anglicare Australia welcomes the opportunity to respond to this inquiry into the non-payment of the Superannuation Guarantee.

From our work across a diversity of services, including employment services, disability services, emergency relief and housing, we know that the income issues some people face at retirement reflect their working lives, battles with health, various caring responsibilities, and experience of deep and persistent disadvantage prior to retirement.

Given the nature of the care and services Anglicare members provide, and the human insights we gain from it, this submission will focus in particular on the effect of the non-payment of the superannuation guarantee on low income workers and their retirement incomes.
