Where a couple is in a same sex relationship that has the distinguishing characteristics of a married relationship and have been living together continuously for the preceding three years, or living together for not less than three aggregate years of the preceding four, the relationship has putative status.
Your spouse or putative spouse must be:
- less than preservation age, or
- between preservation age and age 65 and not retired from the workforce.
What contributions can be split?
- 85% of award contributions, plus
- 85% of salary sacrifice voluntary contributions providing there are sufficient funds in your account(s) to cover the split.
- Voluntary after-tax contributions
- Employer contributions (if you are a non-contributory member)
What contributions can’t be split?
- Rollover amounts
- Compulsory after-tax or compulsory salary sacrifice contributions
- Contributions paid by your employer to fund defined benefit entitlements
- Amounts subject to family law conditions
When can contributions be split?
- In the financial year following the year in which the contributions were made, or
- During the same financial year if the entire entitlement is to be rolled over, transferred or cashed, before the end of that financial year
Each contribution split must be a minimum of $1,500.
