Super 12 and superannuation
Thursday, April 26th 2001, 9:49PM
Super 12 and superannuation are the two big games in town at the moment (but you'll only read about one of them in the mainstream media). Currently:
- Submissions on the Government's proposal to partially pre-fund NZ Super are underway
- Finance Minister Michael Cullen last week made a speech that has been described as one of the most positive made by a government on the topic for years. "It was the most positive speech I have heard for many years on retirement funding," a chief executive of a major financial services company said afterwards.
- The National Party has finally made some progress in developing its super policy for the next election.
SuperTalk (www.supertalk) has all the news you won't read elsewhere on superannuation, including:
