Turn your super into a regular income

When it comes to preparing for life after work, a little bit of help can go a long way. Even the seemingly small things like switching from a super account to a pension and managing those accounts - it’s all new terrain to explore and conquer. Here are the most common questions we get asked, paired with practical actions you can take.

What are the benefits of a super pension?

Super pensions are a popular choice because they can provide a flexible, tax effective income stream and are a powerful financial strategy to use whether you want to ease into retirement or fully retire. There are many benefits to this type of pension.

  • Easily start your pension online
  • Same team that manages your super will be with you through retirement
  • Enjoy great tax breaks, which are even more favourable once you reach age 60
  • Choose your payment amount, but be sure to keep within the pension limits
  • Decide the frequency of regular payments made to your bank account
  • Manage your pension on the go using the VISSF App
