Transition to Retirement (TTR) Flexi Pension

This Flexi Pension can be a great option if you have reached your preservation age*, are under age 65 and want to continue working.

This option creates a tax-effective income stream that enables more of your pay to be salary sacrificed to help boost your super.

Retirement Phase Flexi Pension

This Flexi Pension can be a great option if you have turned 65 or have reached your preservation age* and have retired from work.

This option allows you to access your super as an income stream and make lump-sum withdrawals.

*Your preservation age depends on when you were born but ranges from 55-60 years old.

  • What is a Beneficiary Income Stream (BIS) Flexi Pension?

    A BIS Flexi Pension allows you to receive an income stream from a death benefit. You can only start a BIS Flexi Pension if you’re entitled to receive a death benefit and you’re the spouse of the deceased.

    By choosing to receive an income stream from a BIS Flexi Pension:

    • you decide how much you want to draw and how often (subject to the minimum amount set by the government),
    • your lump sum can be invested across our range of investment options,
    • you can access additional money whenever you need it, and
    • you have secure online access to your account.

    For more information on the BIS Flexi Pension, read the Flexi Pension product disclosure statement (PDF, 3.1 MB).
