Pension account

LGIAsuper’s Pension account can provide you with a regular income in retirement and the flexibility to take lump sum withdrawals. Simply choose how much income you want and how often you receive payments.

The income you receive from your LGIAsuper Pension account can top up your Australian Government Age Pension (if you’re eligible) or other income support payments you may receive.

How to open a Pension account

Before opening a Pension account we recommend you read the Pension accounts PDS and contact us to speak to our trusted and reliable staff, as they can help you understand your options.

If you decide a Pension account is right for you, simply complete the Pension application form at the end of the Pension accounts PDS Part 1 (Page 23 of the PDF) and return it to LGIAsuper.

Can I open a Pension account?

You can open a Pension account when you reach your preservation age (which is between 55 and 60 depending on when you were born) and have:

  • permanently retired
  • left your job or changed jobs on or after turning 60
  • turned 65

You also need an opening balance of at least $50,000.

Let's Learn

A retirement income stream is one way of accessing your superannuation when you retire. It offers regular, flexible and tax-effective payments from your superannuation. The decision on income stream versus lump sum payment is different for everyone.

Flexible payment options

You decide how often you receive your pension income. Choose from fortnightly, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly or annual payments.

You can also choose how much you receive each payment. The Australian Government sets a minimum pension amount that is based on your age and account balance at the time of opening your account. To find out what your minimum pension amount is, download our Pension accounts PDS.

To help keep track of your payments for the financial year, you can refer to our list of pension payment dates.
