MikeB4: Superannuation is not a Welfare Benefit.
What is it then? It's a government transfer payment just like any other form of 'welfare benefit'
It is the Government pension, - welfare benefits are a separate issue.
Now for those that feel that it should be means tested, I wonder how many would support me if I was to say -
"OK, rather than draw my pension when eligible (in other words forgo it), I will continue to work rather than retire. But in return for losing my pension, I feel that I should no longer be eligible for income tax."
