Retirement Income Policy Division
The Retirement Income Policy Division (RIPD) provides policy and legislative advice to Government on all aspects of retirement income policy, including superannuation and age pension policies. The Division advises on the adequacy, concessionality, sustainability and equity of the retirement income system, taking into account the interaction between the superannuation system and the age pension system. The Division also advises on and manages legislation governing market conduct and regulation of the superannuation sector to ensure it is operating efficiently and effectively and delivering desired outcomes. In relation to taxation, the Division is responsible for policy advice and legislation to ensure that taxation related to the retirement income system is sustainable, efficient, fair and well understood by the community.
