    I really have a question which I hope you can clarify. I am a dummy.
    I am about to retire and expect to be eligible for the maximum rate of age pension. I have less than $100000 in my super and I am wondering if I HAVE to arrange a retirement pension out of this small amount, or whether I can just draw it all down and put it into a bank with a reasonable interest rate. Or whether there will be tax payable when I draw the lot out of my super fund.
    I do understand that the amount would be subject to deeming by Centrelink but would there be other ongoing penalties just to have the super in a bank and able to be accessed as and when I need it ??
