While his employer is making Superannuation Guarantee contributions to his superannuation, Jacob has been thinking of salary sacrificing up to the maximum amount or putting some money from his bank account into super and has come to you for advice on this and his upcoming retirement plans. when he retires – he is happy to work on todays figures knowing they will change.
