Maximise your retirement income with an award-winning fund

Whether you’re still a few years away from retirement, or already there, CareSuper offers a range of flexible, tax-effective ways to make the most of your hard-earned super.

Still working? Here’s a way to ease into retirement

A CareSuper Transition To Retirement (TTR) strategy allows you to access your super once you've reached your preservation age.

What is your preservation age?

You can access your super savings for TTR as soon as you reach your ‘preservation age’. Here’s how to figure out your preservation age:

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
After 30 June 1964 60

The CareSuper TTR Pension is a flexible option if you’re still working and want to supplement your salary with pension payments from your super.

One of the advantages of this strategy is that your money is invested in a tax-effective super environment.

Three options, countless lifestyle possibilities

CareSuper’s retirement options each have their own unique features and benefits, designed to suit a range of different members and situations.

They can work individually or in combination with each other – so some people might benefit from opening more than one type of account at the same time.

For example, some people might benefit from having both a Guaranteed Income account as well as a CareSuper Pension, to help fund their individual income needs. The product (or combination or products) that’s right for you will depend on your personal circumstances and retirement goals.

To find out which combination of CareSuper’s retirement products is appropriate for you, it’s a good idea to speak to a financial planner, who can tailor a plan to support your retirement goals.**
