Today we released an update that, on retirement, limits the amount transferred to an account-based pension to the $1.6m transfer balance cap. The transfer balance cap is indexed with CPI, so will reduce relative to expected salary growth.
During retirement phase, any super balance that exceeds the transfer balance cap at retirement will remain in an accumulation account, separate from the super pension account.
We have updated the algorithm to meet lump sum and income requirements from the accumulation account first, subject to the minimum drawdown provisions applying to account-based pensions.
This release also introduces some warning pop-ups when you exceed the concessional cap or the transfer balance cap.
