I'm 34 and have only about 5k.
Much of my career was spent working overseas on a tax free salary.

30years old and I have $3000! 😳 I've been a SAHM for the past 7 years and am studying a degree so I will have a career to start in a few years time (well, hopefully!). DH is 34 and has about $100K.we will be putting more into our super once we're on double income. Pretty impossible to ATM.

I was surprised to see mine was finally over 100k. I'm 35 and I've been there for 10 years.

Good point cheese please! I forgot to ask ages.

Under $1000... But I'm 20 and have only worked for 6 months. I worked as a seasonal casual towards the end of my gap year, met DF and 3 months we successfully conceived and couldn't continue due to HG. I'm sure it's even less now, but it won't be that way forever.
When I start my business I want to invest my super contributions in other ways though (savings account and/or real estate).

I'm 30 with 77k.
I'm not paying extra into it because the average life expectancy of a female in my family is 65 so with the retirement age rising I'll probably never see mine. It will be a great savings account for my boys!
DH is 32 with about 55k (he previously worked contract which means no employer contribution).

I'm 32 and have $150k in my super which has been like that for awhile since I've been a SAHM for the past 5.5 years. I'm about to roll mine into DH's superfund and he has started making more contribution to lower his taxable income plus put more in our super for retirement.

Must have $50k?? and I'm 33yo.
I have only work for 5.5 years though before that I was overseas.
As a finance analyst I put as little as possible in my super (ie nothing lol). An investment for which you don't control the timing of the output is one of the worst investment I could think of.
