Discover how much super is right for YOU

If you’ve ever wondered about how much super you should be saving for your retirement, then you’re not alone.

For anyone that runs their own business, understanding how much you need to be putting aside (and if it will really make a difference come retirement) is one of those jobs (and skills) that you probably never even thought about before you became self-employed.

The thing is, retiring with a meaningful amount is likely more achievable than you think.

This guide will help you discover how much to start with PLUS give you some extra handy super tips like:

  • How to use super to help you pay less tax
  • The benefits inside super that hardly anyone tells you about when you’re self-employed – yup, free money you could be entitled to  
  • How to automate saving into super, even if your income fluctuates

Hi 👋  I'm Paul - the resident Super Guide at GigSuper.

And I’ve put this handy guide together, to help self-employed people like you get back control of your super – regardless of which fund you’re currently with.

You see, I used to be a financial planner. And lots of my clients were retirees who needed to make their money stretch when they stopped working.

The hardest part of my job was seeing first hand the devastating failure of self-employed people retiring with little to no superannuation.

And all too often it was simply because no one ever explained the fundamentals to them. Or helped them through the confusing bits. As a result, they just left it in the ‘too hard’ basket – until it was too late.

So I joined GigSuper to change the beginning of those stories…...and to help self-employed Aussies, like YOU, achieve the type of retirement they deserve.

Reading through this guide will only take a few minutes of your day, but could have a huge impact on your life. Let’s dive in!
