You are here:

You could pay less interest - and own your home sooner

undefinedSalary packaging your mortgage payments could help you own your home sooner.

By contributing pre-tax dollars towards your mortgage payments you could reduce the term of your loan - and save on interest too.

What exactly can I package?

You can salary package both principal and interest payments. It's up to you.

Who can package mortgage payments?

To salary package mortgage payments you must be the owner-occupier of your home and work for a:

  • private or public not-for-profit hospital
  • charity or other not-for-profit organisation.

Still not sure whether you can package mortgage payments? Then simply log into My Employer Hub and refer to your Employer's Information Booklet.

An example: salary packaging mortgage payments

Joanne works for a not-for-profit private hospital and earns $65,000 a year (excluding super contributions).

She is considering salary packaging the maximum allowable amount of $9,010 towards her mortgage payments.

By choosing to salary package her mortgage payments (rather than paying for them from her post-tax salary) Joanne increases her disposable salary by $2,948 a year - or $113 a fortnight.
