Gender super gap widens as the government dithers

  Published: 03 May 2021

The typical woman is retiring with almost $60,000 less super than men – as the federal government drags its feet on fixing the gender super gap and still has not re-committed to sticking with the legislated super increase.

The median super balance for a woman in her early 60s is just $146,900, lagging the male median of $204,200. Both men and women have less than the $545,000 recommended for a comfortable retirement.
