A Roy Morgan Single Source survey, which was conducted in the year to January 2018, has found that 2.2 million current superannuation members (20.8%) are paying more than the compulsory level of contributions into their fund. This compares with 25.5% of superannuation contributors in 2010 and 21.7% in 2013. The survey also shows that 45% of superannuation members with personal incomes of more than $150,000 per annum are paying beyond the Superannuation Guarantee rate, followed by those on incomes of $100,000 to $149,000 per annum (33.8%). In contrast, just 11.4% of people with earning below $25,000 per annum and 13.2% of those with annual income of $25,000 to $49,000 contribute more than the compulsory level to their super fund.
