Executive summary

Australia has one of the most developed and well-established welfare systems. In order to ensure decent living conditions for its citizens, the Australian government operates various welfare schemes. The main outgoing expenditures of the Australian government include income support payments and the payment of expenditures to families, including retirement benefits and other pensions. The Australian pension system is divided into three pillars. The first pillar is funded through general taxation revenue with a flat rate benefit regardless of the individual's previous earnings; a superannuation guarantee forms the second pillar, which is a mandatory concessional-taxed savings system; and the third pillar is a voluntary superannuation contribution system assisted by the tax concessions. The Australian social security system also supports unemployed people with the Newstart Allowance. People who are unable to support themselves through work or savings are supported through payments such as family tax benefit, supplementary payments and income support payments. The allocation of payments is based on the means testing of the individual's income and assets.
