The superannuation gap is caused by unequal pay, hours spent on unpaid work and the fact that most women work part-time or casually.
eS4W has developed an initiative to create centralised superannuation resources, specific to the NFP sector, on the challenges facing women with their superannuation. Bringing you information on:
Women retire with 58% less super than men; enough only for 6 years of retirement. We recognise the super gap is only one of a number of challenges faced by your members.
We also provide more information on how to access the government co-contribution towards superannuation. This is highly relevant for those who earn less than $37,000 per annum.
In addition, eS4W has published Discussion Papers on this issue that you can use for your advocacy work.
