How to view your Transfer Balance Cap

If you commenced a retirement phase pension prior to 1 July 2021 you had a Personal Transfer Balance Cap (PTBC) of $1.6 million, however proportional indexation can now apply in some circumstances which complicates matters. f you commenced a retirement phase pension after 1 July 2021 then you have a PTBC of $1.7 million. This may also change again when the next uplift of indexation occurs in future.
