While it may not feel like it now, your superannuation ("super") is important because it’s an investment in your future and can help you enjoy a comfortable life once you stop working.

Many people think of their super as an investment they don’t need to worry about until later, but it pays to understand how it all works. The earlier you get on top of your super, the more effectively you could grow your savings.
