Co-contribution and LISTO can be accepted at any time

Section: 2.10

Government co-contributions and low income super tax offset (LISTO) contributions are both examples of member contributions made by someone other than the member. Member contributions made by someone other than the member are normally only permitted to be made if the member is under age 70. However, a super fund is able to accept contributions where the contribution relates to an earlier eligible contribution period, even if the member is no longer eligible to contribute.

The government co-contribution and LISTO contribution are examples of contributions made by the government relating to earlier eligible contribution periods. Because the member was eligible to contribute at the time of the original contribution, a government co-contribution or LISTO contribution can always be accepted, regardless of the member's age or work status.
