For those of you with allocated pensions and transition to retirement allocated pensions the new tax year means some changes. Allocated pensions must comply with government legislation that determines how much money you can draw down as a pension.
How much you can draw is recalculated each year at june 30th and is affected by both your age and current super balance, meaning your payments may go up or go down. Due to the excellent returns achieved so far this financial year most people should find a slight increase in their pension payments.
It is particularly important to check your statement or talk to your financial adviser about these changes if need be, especially those on a transition to retirement allocate pension.
