How it works

Building up a healthy superannuation balance is important, but how you access and invest your money in retirement will determine how long it lasts. 

Transferring your super balance into a Retirement Income account allows you to draw down an income from your savings while the balance continues to earn investment income in a tax-free environment.

To open a Retirement Income account, you need a minimum of $25,000. If you’re transferring money from a super account in Equip Super but still plan to keep the super account open, you’ll need to leave a minimum balance of $6,000 in that account.

Equip Super offers seven diversified options and four sector-specific options, so you can choose the options that best suit your retirement needs.

Or, you can choose to invest in Equip Super MyPension – our innovative set-and-forget investment strategy that’s specifically designed to take the hard work out of investing your retirement savings.

You can choose to have your income paid to you on a fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or annual basis. And you get to nominate the amount that you’d like to receive. Note that a minimum annual payment amount applies.

And because a retirement income account is flexible, you can withdraw extra money if you need it, like if you're planning a holiday.

*Payments are tax-free once you reach age 60.
