You can stay with MTAA Super through your working life and into retirement.
A MTAA Super Pension account can be a tax-effective way to invest as there is no tax payable on investment earnings and after age 60, you don’t pay tax on your pension payments. If you’re under age 60, you can get a tax rebate on some of your pension income.
Setting up a pension is easy and we’re here to help if you have any questions.
Note: There is a limit on the amount of money you can transfer into a retirement phase pension. This is known as the Transfer Balance Cap. Refer to the Pension Handbook for more information.
Here’s how a Pension works
Simply transfer part or all of the balance of your super account/s into a Pension account, then
Nominate how much income you would like to receive and when. Keep in mind, you’ll need to withdraw a minimum percentage of the balance each year, based on your age. You also have the flexibility to make lump sum withdrawals from your Pension account.
