My retirement options

As you approach retirement, it makes sense to start planning how you will finance your life after work and part of that is working out how to make best use of your money in super.

Choose the retirement income stream product that suits you and allows you to convert your super into a regular income:

  1. Transition to Retirement Income Stream account – for those approaching retirement and still working, or
  2. Retirement Income Stream account – for people who are fully retired.

Transition to retirement income stream account (TTR)

If you have reached your preservation age and are still working you may be able to rollover some of your super into a TTR income stream account. This presents the following options:

When you retire or reach the age of 65 the TTR income stream will automatically transfer to an Retirement Income Stream.

Once you have retired, an allocated income stream lets you convert your super into a regular income in retirement and as your money is still in the super environment, investment earnings on your money and withdrawals from your account are tax free (for those aged over 60 years).

Retirement income streams can be complex and may have tax and other implications. There are also strict rules around accessing your super and operating an income stream account. For these reasons, we recommended you carefully review the PDS - Income Streams and consider obtaining independent financial advice before you make a decision about opening an income stream account.
