We understand that with a big life change, like a transition from work to retirement, there often comes worry. Will I have enough to live the life I want? What if the market crashes? How can I use my savings sustainably?

Generally speaking, there are three common sources of income accessed by Australians in retirement. There’s the government Age Pension, the pension you can get from your hard-earned super savings and any other savings or investments you have elsewhere. Some members may use more than one source of income in retirement.
At Tasplan, we offer our members access to a Transition Pension, a Managed Pension, and/or a Control Pension.
At Tasplan, we’re here to help. We can meet with you to explain your Tasplan Pension options and their features and if you’d like more help, we can even set you up with one of our financial planners.
Whichever Tasplan Pension option you choose, we make it easy to feel in control of your money.
Any retirement planning should consider the income from your super, as well as any Government benefits you may be entitled to. Before starting a pension with Tasplan, we recommend that you check with Centrelink in the event any existing payments are impacted.
You can find the Join Tasplan Pension form and information about how to apply at the back of our Tasplan Pension guide.
