Over half of Australians have agreed with the proposed objective of superannuation by the government, according to a survey commissioned by the Financial Services Council.

The polling, conducted by CT Group, shows that 53 per cent of respondents agree with the Government’s proposed wording for the objective of superannuation, with only 10 per cent disagreeing.

The Government introduced a stand-alone bill to Parliament which stated the “objective of superannuation is to preserve savings to deliver income for a dignified retirement, alongside government support, in an equitable and sustainable way”.
