RETIREMENT INCOME REVIEW CONSULTATION PAPER

November 22, 2019

Joint with
HON LINDA BURNEY MP
SHADOW MINISTER FOR FAMILIES AND SOCIAL SERVICES
MEMBER FOR BARTON
and
STEPHEN JONES MP
SHADOW ASSISTANT TREASURER
SHADOW MINISTER FOR FINANCIAL SERVICES
MEMBER FOR WHITLAM

Today the consultation paper for the Government's review of the retirement income system has been released.

Scott Morrison and Josh Frydenberg have created this Review as a stalking horse for more cuts to the pension and further delays to the legislated increase in the Superannuation Guarantee to 12 per cent.

If they knew anything about the ageing of the population they’d know you don’t boost retirement incomes by thieving the super people need for a decent retirement.

The Liberals and Nationals have a dismal record on pensions and superannuation.

In three terms, the Liberals have tried time and time again to gut the incomes of retirees and pensioners by cutting the pension, trying to increase the pension age to 70, and delaying the increase to the Superannuation Guarantee.

Attacks on the pension and superannuation are in their DNA.
