Estate planning – Is there tax on super?

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in The Money Show which aired on Friday 27 May 2022. Leon starts the show, assessing this topic is perhaps the most depressing ever – not only might you die, you might also have to pay tax on your super! This week’s topic is: Does your estate pay tax on your super?

Key topics covered include:
– What happens to your super when you pass?
– Have you put in place a binding nomination if you are working, or perhaps a reversionary pension if you die?
– Generally, if a husband or wife passes, super goes to the spouse or dependent children tax-free.
– What happens if the money goes to a non-dependent child?
– Is life insurance within super taxed? How might you plan for that?
– What is the tax rate?
– Can you use the removal of the work test rules to take money out and put it back in tax free?
– Remember, your will doesn’t cover your super and an enduring power of attorney is a useful document too.
– Luke offers his insights into considering super as part if an estate plan
