Women mostly retire with 30% less super than men1.

It's time to start changing your future.

Why the disparity? 

The reasons are complex, yet simple. 

On average, women earn less than men. Amazingly, this gender pay gap has been stuck between 13-19% for two decades1, despite modern laws and changing attitudes. 

And since compulsory employer contributions based on a percentage of wage, women accumulate less super. 

A woman's working life is also commonly interrupted by maternity leave, time off to raise their family, and time off to care for elderly parents. 

And women also tend to live longer than men, and are therefore in need of more money to finance their retirement years.
