The Government’s superannuation ‘Transition to Retirement’ rule is designed to help Australians become more financially secure in the years leading up to their full retirement.
It allows pre-retirees currently aged over 55 gain some access to their accumulated superannuation balances through what is known as a Transition to Retirement Income Steam (TRIS) or a Transition to Retirement (TTR) Pension.
A TRIS is similar to an account based pension (ABP) but limits the amount of money you can withdraw annually.
What are the advantages of a TRIS?
- Pays you a regular income.
- Allows flexibility around your retirement plan.
- Potential tax savings
- Once aged 60, pension payments are tax free
