If your spouse, husband, wife, de facto or same sex-partner has a low income, working part time or not working at all, adding to their super will help you both financially. Spouse contributions involve making a contribution to a spouse’s super fund to build their retirement savings. If you help by contributing some of your own money to their super, you could be eligible to receive a tax rebate.
You can also split your employer super contributions with your spouse. Contribution splitting can only be done after the end of the financial year.
