Before retirement

Transition to Retirement Income account

With a Transition to Retirement (TTR) Income account, you enjoy regular payments from your super while you're still working.

This means you can reduce your work hours without reducing your income, or use the account as a tax strategy in the lead-up to retirement. You choose how and when you get paid, and how your balance is invested.
