At this moment, I'm just going to address one thing. Super.
As a stay home parent, I obviously made the choice to stay at home, it's what I felt was in the best interests of my children. Because of that, I am not entitled to any super, I'm not in paid employment. I however, am entitled to my Husband's super. While I am raising our children, he is working to support us, as a family, and as a result of that, he is earning super to support us, as a couple, when we retire.
Once I return to paid employment, my plan is to make voluntary super contributions on top of my employer contributions, in an effort to boost up the super that I missed out on whilst staying at home with my children. For low to middle income earners, there is also the Government super co-contribution, where the Government will match up to $1,000 of your personal contributions, this is something to definitely to keep in mind. It would be worth making extra payments into your super to take advantage of this (I wouldn't be entitled to it, but I still wish to bump up my own super by voluntary payments).
In the case of single parents, I'm not sure how it works, but if you separated from a long term partner, I'm pretty sure (correct me if I'm wrong) that you are entitled to up to half of your ex-partners super, so when dividing up property etc this should be included.
As for the Government paying stay at home parents superannuation in some form, I do not agree with it.
