Organise your household assets to maximise your Age Pension entitlements

Can transferring assets help you maximise your Age Pension entitlements?

    It may if the younger individual in the relationship is under 67 years old and their superannuation is still in an accumulation account

    There are a few things to consider including:

    • The younger partner must be under Age Pension age
    • Is the younger spouse under the maximum contribution limits?
    • What are the tax implications for the younger partner’s super?

    John and Carols recent consultation led to significant increases in their entitlements

    John and Carol met with Megan recently.  John 67 had just retired whilst Carol 62 was still enjoying working part time earning $15,000 pa.  Carol said she would work until age 67.  They own their own home with no mortgage.

    John and Carol wanted to make sure they had enough money to live on in retirement and after meeting with Megan were pleasantly surprised to find that by transferring some of their money to Carol’s super, they could receive higher Age Pension entitlements than they were currently receiving. Megan showed them that transferring $250,000 to Carol could get them an extra $11,348* in the first year increasing to over $16K* the year before Carol retired.

    Could you benefit by re-organising your household assets?
