Superannuation Increases

John Key mentioned in his conference speech that a couple receiving will come October be receiving $70 a week more in the hand, than in 2008. I thought this can’t be right. Surely Grey Power could not be so grumpy, if this was right – but it is – I asked for the details.

  1. 30 September 2008 – $439.80
  2. 1 October 2008 tax cuts +$22.94 = $462.74
  3. 1 April 2009 CPI adjust +$15.64 = $478.38
  4. 1 April 2010 av wage adjust +$11.04 = $489.42
  5. 1 October 2010 tax cuts +$21.64 = $511.06

So over two years, the level of married superannuation has gone up a whopping $71.26 a week.
