WA workers to lose billions if the super increase is scrapped

  Published: 22 Jan 2020

West Australian workers would lose more than $1.75 billion from their retirement savings a year if politicians ditch a promised increase to their super rate, new modelling reveals.  

Workers in the electorates of Durack, Perth and Pearce would lose more than $100 million from their super accounts.

The Super Guarantee rate is legislated to rise to 12 per cent by the middle of 2025. Industry Super Australia (ISA) analysis shows that if the government breaks its promise and super stays at 9.5 per cent, by 2025 the average West Australian worker would have already lost $1,790.
