Luke on 2CC – PSS members Don’t miss out on a tax deduction!

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in Money Matters, which aired on Friday 12 April 2024. Leon Delaney returns to the studio this week after his extended Easter break, lucky Leon! This week’s show considers misconceptions around The Public Sector Superannuation Scheme (PSS). Many government employees have a PSS Super or an equivalent military defined benefit account. Sadly, many PSS members are not making the most of their retirement savings options and this episode explores why. Thanks for joining us live on 2CC or your favourite podcast streaming service.

Key topics covered include:

  • What is the PSS?
  • How does the fund calculate your benefit?
  • Why is a your contribution important to this benefit?
  • Did you know you can make a contribution to another fund and get a tax deduction outside of PSS? Many PSS members miss out on a tax deduction!
  • What is the current tax deductible or Concessional Contribution Limit for this year? Did you know it’s rising to $30,000 on 1 July 2024?
  • How do I work out my Concessional Contribution Limit?
  • You also need to lodge your ‘Notice of Intent to claim a tax deduction’ for your contribution to super with the super fund you make the contribution too.
  • Are there other strategies you can use like Super Splitting which might help you retire sooner?
  • Luke shares his top tips when thinking about making the most of the PSS and your retirement.
