How to use your super to fund your retirement.
When you retire, super can continue to provide you with a regular income to fund your lifestyle needs.
One option is to convert your super into an account-based pension. We call ours an income stream account. This allows you to take advantage of flexible income payments, while also being able to make lump sum withdrawals. All while your money remains invested and working for you.
There are two main types of income streams you can start:
1. Transition-To-Retirement (TTR) pension
Enables you to use your super to top up your income if you have reduced your working hours or if you’d like to make salary sacrifice or personal deductible contributions, which may be tax-effective for you.
2. Account-based pension (allocated pension)
You can set this up once you meet the age requirement and have retired, or once you turn 65. Your super can provide you with a regular income as well as access to lump sum withdrawals as required.
