Minimum Pensions Halved – 2020 & 2021

Retirees have support to preserve their superannuation benefits by changing their minimum pension.



         


Superannuation fund values will have suffered from coronavirus driven financial market volatility, particularly since stock market peaks of February 2020.


The Government is temporarily reducing the superannuation minimum drawdown requirements for account-based pensions and similar products by 50% for the 2019-20 and 2020-21 income years.

A similar temporary measure occurred from 2009 to 2011 following the global financial crisis.


This measure will reduce  the need to sell investment assets (at a depressed time) to fund minimum drawdown requirements.
