What is a spouse contribution?
Spouse contributions are contributions you make on behalf of your partner from your after-tax income.
You must be married or in a de facto relationship with your partner to make super contributions on their behalf. You must also both be Australian residents.
If you’re making after-tax contributions to your partner’s super, your partner needs to be under age 67, or meet the work test or work test exemption requirements if they’re aged between 67 and 74, to be eligible to receive spouse contributions.
