Older women penalised for playing superannuation catch-up: report

    Description

    Women over the age of 50 who are struggling to catch up on superannuation are bearing the brunt of Federal Government tax changes, according to new research.

    This month's budget unveiled a reduction in the cap on super contributions that can be made before tax kicks in.

    A University of Canberra (UC) study found women were being penalised because they often tried to catch up with contributions later in life.
