Enjoy Your Super

You’ve worked hard, grown your super and now the time has come to enjoy it.

Enjoy Your Super

We’re committed to helping you achieve your retirement goals and enjoy the lifestyle activities that you take pleasure in.

It is important to regularly review your investments and retirement plan.  Our dedicated Financial Planning division have the skills and experience to ensure you are heading in the right direction.

Preservation Age

First things first – to access your super benefits, generally you need to have either reached the age of 65, or retired permanently from the workforce after reaching your preservation age. Depending on your date of birth your preservation age is:

If born before 1 July 1960

If born between 1 July 1960 - 30 June 1961

If born between 1 July 1961 - 30 June 1962

If born between 1 July 1962 - 30 June 1963

If born between 1 July 1963 - 30 June 1964

If born after 1 July 1964


Transition to Retirement Pension

Reached your preservation age, but not quite ready to retire?  It is possible for you to keep working while accessing up to 10% of your super benefits each year.  Called a Transition to Retirement Pension, it allows you to supplement your salary whilst maintaining your lifestyle.  We can show you how to use this pension to save tax and boost your super before you retire.

Turning 60

Finally, the time has come!  When you finally retire, you will be able to access your superannuation savings that you have accumulated.  You can take it all, but remember retirement can last a long time.  An account based pension could be right for you.  Account based pensions provide the following;


Flexible payment options which allow you to choose how often and how much you wish to receive


Access to your benefits at any time


Investment earnings are tax-free


There may be opportunities to re-contribute pension payments back into the fund

There is a minimum amount you must withdraw each year but there is no upper limit on how much you can access.

Sit back and relax – you’ve earned it!
