How does TTR Income account work?

Your TTR Income account and super account will work together and may reduce the overall tax you pay. Since you’re still working, employer payments mean your super account balance continues to grow. At the same time you’ll receive income payments, transferred directly to your bank account.

Initially, you’ll use money from your super account to open your TTR Income account. Once your TTR Income account is set up, your two accounts will work together and help you transition to retirement.

  • Am I eligible to transition to retirement?

    To be eligible for transition to retirement (TTR), you must have reached the age at which you can access your super – known as your preservation age.

    You'll need at least $30,000 in your super account to start a transition to retirement strategy. This is so you can move at least $25,000 to your TTR Income Account while leaving at least $5,000 in your super account ($10,000 if you have insurance cover).

  • What’s my retirement or ‘preservation’ age?

    Your preservation age depends on when you were born.

     

    Date of birth Preservation age
    Before 1 July 1960 55
    1 July 1960 - 30 June 1961 56
    1 July 1961 - 30 June 1962 57
    1 July 1962 - 30 June 1963 58
     1 July 1963 - 30 June 1964 59
     From 1 July 1964 60
