I have a casul job, and as a one off thing, I went interstate to work, and the travel time was paid.

Because of that work, I did 40 hours in a 30 period, however, some of that is the paid travel time.

Am I  eligible to contribute to superannuation under that arrangement?

Hi @Dianne,

 

Thanks for getting in touch!

 

If you're 65 years of age or over but not yet 75, the trustee of your super fund decides whether they can accept a personal contribution from you and whether you meet the work test.


Generally, if you completed 40 hours of paid work within a 30 day period you'd meet the work test . However, it's recommended to discuss whether you satisfy meeting the work test directly with your super fund.

 

Thanks, JodieH.
