Income account products
BUSSQ has a range of Income account products to suit your needs. The type of Income account you require will be determined by the reason you want to access your super.
This could be because you are:
- permanently retired,
- still working past your preservation age,
- have a disability, or
- you are the recipient of a superannuation benefit following the death of a family member.
Whatever the reason, BUSSQ can provide you with a retirement product to suit your needs.
Your retirement reward
To kickstart your retirement, BUSSQ pays a Retirement Reward to eligible members who open a Retirement, Disability or Beneficiary Income account.
The amount of your Retirement Reward is determined by the amount you open your Income account with and the investment options you have been invested in. The Retirement Reward can be paid into the Income account or to your nominated bank account.
Before retiring consider:
- Preservation Age – when can you access your super
- Triggers of release – what needs to happen before you can access your super
- Centrelink Age Pension – when you can apply for a Centrelink Age Pension
If you’re questioning how much you need to retire, it’s important to think about what type of life you’d like in retirement.
So you can be you with BUSSQ, and live the life you want in retirement, it’s important to think about what your future looks like.
