The Superannuated Commonwealth Officers Association (Federal Council) Inc. has lodged its 2016-17 pre-Budget submission to the Department of Treasury.

The key messages that SCOA wishes to be reflected in the budget outcomes for 2016-17 are a government that has committed itself to:

  • maintaining the purchasing power of retirement incomes to keep pace with increases in the real cost of living;
  • indexation which retains the value of Commonwealth superannuation pensions;
  • equitable tax treatment.  No discrimination against people according to the source of their pension; and
  • equity in assessing income.  Those on similar incomes should be able to access the same benefits.
