Transition to Retirement

The ‘transition to retirement’ (TTR) option is a government initiative which recognises that members may want to decrease their working hours over time towards the end of their career. It allows members to access their super benefits as an income stream prior to retirement. Some members use it as an opportunity to boost their super benefits overall or just ease into retirement. This session is suitable for members who are approaching, or are over age 55 and would like an overview of:

  • the potential benefits of a TTR strategy
  • converting super to an income stream
  • taxation implications
  • incorporating salary sacrifice to boost super benefits, and
  • aspects to consider when determining if this strategy is appropriate for you
