Creating a pension strategy playbook – workshop

This interactive pension workshop will take attendees through all the key considerations of establishing and maintaining a pension within an SMSF.

Aligning pensions with conditions of release, Tim will use a number of case studies throughout the workshop to highlight the key issues.

First up Tim will take attendees through the pros and cons of a transition to retirement income stream and how these “accumulation” based pensions are an ideal entry into separating pension interests for estate planning purposes. The session will then delve into the transition from transition and identify the key issues of commencing account based pensions versus maintain a transition to retirement pension in the retirement phase.  It is at this point that the transfer balance cap becomes an issue, so the session will contemplate all things transfer balance cap.

To commute, pay additional pensions or draw from accumulation?  What are the trustee considerations when drawing excess benefits from a fund.  No two members are the same.

How to deal with the age old question of reversionary versus non-reversionary and then go from the age old question to the old age pension question! Understanding the Centrelink implications for an SMSFs is critical, this will provide an opportunity to review the legacy pension issues currently at the forefront of Federal Budget announcements but also the legacy of pre 2015 account-based pensions.

Having a well rounded appreciation of all things pension is vital in managing SMSFs.  Come prepared with all your questions to throw at Tim throughout the workshop.
