Your superannuation benefit and your Age Pension entitlements are likely to be very important for your retirement plans.
Did you know your right to access your super, or claim the Age Pension, is based on the date you were born? Use the Retirement Age Reckoner below to discover:
- your preservation age (the minimum age you can access your super on retirement) and WHEN you will reach that age, and
- your Age Pension age (the age you can claim the Age Pension, assuming you meet the relevant Age Pension income and assets tests), and WHEN you will reach that age
The Retirement Age Reckoner is easy to use. Just choose your year of birth, month of birth and actual day of the month of your birth by clicking on the small arrows in the Reckoner below, and scrolling down to the correct year, month and day.
Note: Your preservation age will be from age 55 to age 60 (55 or 56 or 57 or 58 or 59 or 60), depending on your date of birth. Your Age Pension age will be from age 65 to age 67 (65 or 65.5 or 66 or 66.5 or 67), depending on your date of birth.
For background information on your preservation age, see SuperGuide article Accessing super: What is my preservation age? and Accessing super: Preservation age moves to 59 years.
For background information on your Age Pension age, see SuperGuide articles Age Pension age now 65.5 years (66 years from July 2019) and Age Pension age increasing to 67 years (not 70 years).
