To help provide a realistic income in retirement, the Super Guarantee rate will continue to gradually increase up to 12% by 2025. The table below shows the yearly rate increases:
|1 July 2014||9.5%|

Then check with your employer to make sure they’re paying the right Super Guarantee rate. If you don’t think you’re getting paid the right amount, discuss this with your employer immediately or contact the Australian Taxation Office on 13 10 20 for advice.
It’s in the company’s best interests to pay the correct rate, as businesses can face a levy for failing to make the minimum payments.
