How QSuper's Lifetime Pension works


Australian-first retirement product

Our Lifetime Pension is designed to provide your clients with the potential for higher incomes and greater certainty that this part of their income won't run out. It is a longevity product that works by combining your client’s purchase amount with the money of other Lifetime Pension members into a pool of funds. This product is not an annuity - it is a new product category enabled by legislation changes in 2017.

Tax-free payments for a lifetime

Clients receive tax-free, fortnightly payments, which continue even after their initial purchase price has been exhausted. This could potentially provide your clients with a higher income throughout retirement than an annuity or the minimum drawdown rates from an account-based pension.

Part of a complete retirement income solution

Our Lifetime Pension has been designed to work in tandem with our award-winning Retirement Income account1 or your client’s existing account-based pension, to potentially provide a complete retirement income solution. This will mean that your clients have the peace of mind that their income won't run out, and they'll still have the flexibility of being able make withdrawals from their Retirement Income account if needed.

Potential retirement bonus

If your client is a QSuper member and uses money from an existing Accumulation account or Transition to Retirement Income account to buy a Lifetime Pension, they may be eligible for an exclusive, uncapped retirement bonus.

Cooling-off period

There is a 6-month cooling-off period, after which the purchase is permanent.
