Opening a Vision Super retirement pension will let you convert your super into a flexible, low-cost, regular, tax-effective income stream all while keeping your super invested. It is a smart way to retire and helps ensure you’re making the most of your savings. Joining is easy, you need a minimum balance of $10,000 and either reached preservation age and be retired, or be retired because of total and permanent disability or be aged 65 or over. Account based Pension earnings are completely tax free as opposed to 15% earnings tax within an accumulation and TTR account. If you are 65 and over, even if you are still working, you can take advantage of tax free earnings when you commence an account based pension. Minimum payment limits apply. Download and read the Income Stream PDS for more information.
Our Three bucket option is a strategy within the Vision Super retirement pension that helps take the guess work out of investing your super and helps you control how long your savings last with a three bucket investment strategy. Basically, it’s where your money is divided into three different buckets – short, medium, and long-term – to leverage the positive relationship between risk and return. If you choose this investment strategy, your investment is put into three investment options (Cash, Conservative and Growth) in proportions that are determined by the annual income you set. The goal of the strategy is to provide you with income while also helping to manage the risk of you outliving your money. More information on how this strategy works is outlined in the Income Streams PDS. You need a minimum balance of $50,000 to commence this type of pension. Minimum payment limits apply.
