News reports this week say some Coalition MPs are lobbying for first home buyers to get on the property ladder by accessing some of their superannuation savings.
Under the proposal, the would-be buyers would have access to some of the banked employer super contributions equal to their voluntary payments, which could then be used as a deposit on a first home.
But there are also fears that such a move could further inflate the already overheated property market, particularly in Sydney.
Do you think young people should be allowed to dip into their super to help finance a home deposit? Or should they keep their super for their retirement and stay in the rental market longer?
