Make a smooth transition to retirement

Transition to Retirement (TTR) Pension

The TTR Pension can be used to save tax and/or to provide some extra income and is for people who:

  • Are still working full or part-time
  • Are between your preservation age and 65
  • Want their super to be working harder for them.

What's in it for you?

  • Create a regular income stream by converting your super balance into a LUCRF Pension
  • Smooth out the peaks and troughs that come with part-time or casual work
  • Can be used to replace lost income if you reduce your hours of work
  • Have more super when you retire, and
  • Pay less tax without changing your current income.
