Q: If I have retired from work and later on inherit a reasonable sum of cash, can I make a non-concessional contribution into my superannuation fund? OR is that only permitted while I am working, regardless of my age?
A: For the benefit of other readers, I will first explain the meaning of a non-concessional superannuation contribution. A non-concessional contribution is a superannuation contribution made from after-tax dollars. Such contributions used to be known as ‘undeducted’ contributions, and they are often described as after-tax contributions. You cannot claim a tax deduction for such a contribution.
