Retirement Income Simulator

Today we released the updated Retirement Income Simulator for the 2019-20 financial year. There were no changes to the underlying calculations, just parameter updates as follows:

  • Co-contribution eligibility income threshold
  • SG maximum contributions base
  • Age pension means test and deeming thresholds
  • Underlying indexed values of contribution caps and transfer balance cap

We have chosen not to include the Low Income Tax Offset and Low and Middle Income Tax Offset at this stage, based on their relative size and the fact that they have no impact on super. If proposed changes now before Parliament are passed, we will review this decision. At present we are also considering modelling future income tax threshold changes that will occur from 2022. All of the changes impact after-tax income only, so are secondary to the purpose of the simulator.
