These changes are designed to improve the sustainability, flexibility and integrity of Australia’s super system. Most of the changes will commence from 1 July 2017. Your super is your future – check to see if you are directly affected, or what these changes may provide for you to maximise your savings for retirement. While you may not be affected by the changes now, it is important to be aware of the changes for your future. If you think you are affected or may be in the future, consider seeking financial advice. - Australian Taxation Office
