There is no doubt we have an ageing population in Australia and that impacts onAvSuper’s members and the superannuation industry, as well as the wider community.
The Association of superannuation funds of Australia (ASFA) has recently produced a white paper providing a commentary on how the super system may need to evolve to accommodate the ageing population.
The paper is certain to provide discussion and generate a number of different views about the best suggestions for the future. We welcome the opportunity to consult on this in the coming months and remind our members that this is an important issue on which we welcome your views.
While we welcome discussions about super and preparing for the future, the white paper is produced by ASFA and may not necessarily reflect our view on the issues raised.
AvSuper is reviewing the white paper prepared by ASFA and considering it’s impact on our members. We’ll form an ‘AvSuper view’ in due course, however in the meantime, we welcome comments from our members to help develop our view and course of action.
Your opinion is valuable to us
ASFA’s white paper has been publicly available so funds and members can comment on it, make suggestions and influence the final position taken by ASFA.
You can log comments on AvSuper’s facebook page, email us with your thoughts or send them directly to ASFA if you prefer.
We encourage AvSuper members to take this opportunity to have a say in how the future of retirement policy in Australia may look – its your super and your retirement! So, how do YOU think retirement and saving for YOUR retirement should look in the future ?
