Open a retirement income account
Join as a Transition to Retirement or a legalsuper Pension member. These account based pensions allow you to start drawing your super as an income, while you keep the balance of your money invested.
If you've met the eligibility criteria, you can convert your super to a flexible, tax-effective legalsuper Transition to Retirement (TTR) or Pension account. When you establish your account, some of the things you must consider include:
- how much you want to transfer from your super account;
- whether you want to transfer other funds from outside legalsuper;
- how you would like your funds invested;
- the frequency and amount of pension payments; and
- your beneficiary details.
You can't open a TTR or a legalsuper Pension account online.
You must download and read the Pension Product Disclosure Statement, and complete the application form, then post this to legalsuper alongside your Proof of Identity and bank account details.Join: Pension membership (1.19 MB) Pension Product Disclosure Statement (927.63 KB)
