Lifetime pension and Income account icon

Lifetime Pension + Retirement Income account

Our Lifetime Pension is designed to work hand in hand with our Retirement Income account for a complete retirement solution.

With the financial security of an income for life, you can decide how much of your super you'd like to allocate to each product.4

1. A Retirement Income account can help maximise your savings, with tax-free investment earnings and no tax on payments or withdrawals after you turn 60.
2. QSuper data for the financial years 2011 to 2021. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. QSuper’s Retirement Income account, Balanced Option only. The return is a compound annualised return reflected after administration fees, investment fees, and tax. Disclosed/reported investment returns reflect the returns of the fund and not member returns of the investment options, as they do not take into account the timing of contributions, investment switches, or withdrawals.
3. Lump sum withdrawals are generally not available for Accumulation unless retired or early access (e.g. financial hardship, compassionate grounds, terminal medical condition, or total and permanent disability), or for TTR accounts. However, members may be eligible to withdraw unrestricted, non-preserved amounts.
4. Subject to transfer balance cap and minimum investment amounts. Further details are available in the QSuper Product Disclosure Statement for Income Account and Lifetime Pension (pdf).
