The superannuation splitting laws enable couples to split superannuation payments, payable under a superannuation interest one of them holds, in family law property settlements on relationship breakdown.
Couples who have separated are able to make an agreement - known as a superannuation agreement - about how any superannuation that either party will receive is to be split. Couples can also make a superannuation agreement before or during their marriage or de facto relationship about how any superannuation will be split on marriage or relationship breakdown.
