FEDERAL BUDGET 2018: LIFE INSURANCE PREMIUMS TO RISE 30PC UNDER OPT IN
FEDERAL BUDGET 2018
Superannuation fund members might end up paying 30 per cent more for their life insurance cover under the government's sweeping plans to stop account erosion in the $2.5 trillion super sector.
The federal government on Tuesday introduced measures that remove default life insurance for new superannuation fund members under 25, those with balances under $6000, and inactive members, as part of a move designed to bolster the retirement accounts of young savers and those on low income.
FOUR TYPES OF INSURANCE FOR THE NEWLY DIVORCED
On 8 May 2018, the Government delivered the 2018-19 Federal Budget, and it would be reasonable to say that this Budget starts to lay a foundation for the next Federal election. The focus of the budget was building a stronger economy by creating jobs and guaranteeing essential services. As most households have had to tighten their budgets over the past few years, the Treasurer has announced that the Government must also live within its means. He said the Government has made real progress in getting the budget back on track and that it has stayed on track for a surplus for six successive budget updates.
