Save Our Super is an apolitical group which informs the public of the implications of the Coalition’s 23 November 2016 superannuation legislation, subsequent superannuation legislation, Labor’s superannuation policies and other superannuation issues.
Some of our supporters vote Liberal/National; some vote Labor; others vote for other parties or independents. But we are united in our call for action by the Federal Parliament.
Our Call For Action
Save Our Super calls for all Federal parliamentarians to promote and support superannuation policies and legislation which contain grandfathering provisions that maintain the previous entitlements of those Australians who will be significantly affected by major rule changes to the then existing superannuation provisions.
How To Support Us
Save Our Super welcomes your support for our call for action. You can support us by signing the updated petition and/or contact us here to let us know that you also care.
