Employees on JobKeeper can Satisfy the ‘Work Test’

November 14, 2020 | Warren Kruger | No Comments |

The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority ('APRA') has confirmed that, where an employer is receiving the JobKeeper wage subsidy for an individual, superannuation funds should consider the individual to be ‘gainfully employed’ for the purpose of the ‘work test', even if that individual has been fully stood down and is not actually performing work.

As such, superannuation funds can assume that all members in receipt of the JobKeeper subsidy satisfy the ‘work test’ when determining whether they can make voluntary superannuation contributions.
