It’s time to end gender super gap

Men have $282 billion more in their super funds and on average retire with $90,000 more in their account than women, new analysis reveals.

Industry Super Australia (ISA) research reveals that the gender pay gap persists and even widens when it comes to retirement savings.

On International Women’s Day ISA and Women In Super (WIS) are calling on the federal government to make some simple changes that could help bridge the super gender gap, including paying super on Commonwealth paid parental leave, abolishing the $450 threshold and sticking to the legislated super rate increase.
