Fast track saving for your first home

What is the First Home Super Saver Scheme (FHSSS)?

The FHSSS was introduced by the Australian Government to help people save for their first home. You can now use your super account to save for a deposit, which will help you save faster.

Why use super to save for a home?

  1. 1Earn more money – money saved using the First Home Super Saver Scheme earns higher interest than you’d earn in a savings account. – 4.96% vs 1.5% p.a.1
  2. 2Save tax – super is taxed at 15%. Interest earned in a savings account is taxed on your personal income tax rate.
  3. 3Savings discipline – you can’t touch your contributed savings until you’re ready to buy a home.
1 As at June 2019 the earnings rate for First Home Super Saver Scheme withdrawals is 4.96%, which we compared to the RBA’s cash rate of 1.25%, which is assumed to be equal to the interest earned on a bank account.

How much can I save using super?

You can add up to $15,000 per financial year into your super account to go towards a deposit. The maximum amount you can save is $30,000 for your first home deposit.
