PRODUCT INFORMATION

RESETTING YOUR INCOME STREAM

Resetting an account based pension or transition to retirement income stream (Pension) is the process of commuting one or more existing Pensions, adding additional funds from the member’s accumulation account, then re-establishing the Pension with the new, larger balance.

Pension resets enable your clients to ‘top up’ their pension account without the need to commence multiple pensions. This not only enables your clients to transfer more of their benefit into pension mode, but reduces the burden for SMSF administrators in managing multiple pension accounts.

This package enables you to reset an existing account based pension or transition to retirement income stream.

Before deciding to reset a Pension, you should consider if the commutation of the Pension will affect the member’s estate planning requirements, particularly with respect to the tax free and taxable components of the Pension, or the Member’s Centrelink eligibility.

Should I reset my pension? ...[more]

It’s important to note pension resets are suitable in some circumstances but not others. There is a balancing act between the options of resetting a pension or commencing a new pension. Please contact the team at Topdocs to discuss your particular requirements if you’re unsure.

For example, if a contribution was made during the year would you reset the pension or commence a new pension at the time of the contribution? With a new pension commencement you may be able to avoid the cost of an actuarial certificate and not need to complete accounts at that date. But you would end up with lots of pensions.

If a contribution was made during the year would you reset the pension at the end of the year? Here you would avoid a multitude of new pensions over time but would need to pay for an actuarial certificate and may have some tax to pay on earnings in accumulation mode.

There are rules including ensuring that the minimum pension payment has been made on the existing pension before commuting and resetting. Also does your deed allow for resetting the pension?
