If you are aged 55 and over, but still working, your Self Managed Superannuation Fund may be able to pay you a Transition to Retirement Pension (TTR Pension).
There are different rules for these types of pension. We can provide the compliance paperwork for these pension. It is likely your fund will need to obtain an actuarial certificate for each year that you pay these pensions from your fund.
You will still be able to continue to make contributions to your SMSF after you start a TTR Pension.
We are an independent family owned business that has specialised in Self Managed Superannuation (SMSF) for more than 30 years.
Although the rules surrounding pensions have been simplified in recent years, there are still compliance issues for pensions.
For new pensions paid by your SMSF we:
We can prepare the required minutes and paperwork to convert your fund to a pension fund. Where it is necessary to obtain an actuarial certificate, we will provide the relevant information to the Actuary and arrange for the provision of this certificate.
Having converted your fund to a pension fund, we can arrange for the payment of your pension, generally monthly, but also quarterly or even annually.
For fund members currently receiving a CentreLink benefit, we can provide Centrelink with the required details of your SMSF pension.
If you are under 60 and receiving a pension through your SMSF, your super fund is required to provide, to the Tax Office,details of taxable pensions paid and remit the relevant tax associated with the pension payment to the ATO. We will deal with this on your behalf.
