The maximum ages for making certain voluntary pension contributions in Australia will increase under measures included in the Superannuation Legislation Amendment (2020 Measures No. 1) Regulations 2020. The measures will apply to contributions made on or after 1 Jul 2020.
Also, a proposal in parliament would extend the three-year non-concessional contribution bring forward rule to the end of the financial year in which the member reaches age 67. Currently, the cutoff for triggering the bring forward rule is the end of the financial year in which the member reaches age 65. The measure features in the Treasury Laws Amendment (More Flexible Superannuation) Bill 2020, and although the bill won’t receive Royal Assent until later in 2020, it will be backdated to contributions made on or after 1 Jul 2020.
