  • Transfer balance cap

    The transfer balance cap applies from 1 July 2017. It is a limit on the total amount of superannuation that can be transferred into the retirement phase. All your super account balances (regardless of how many you have) will be included to calculate this amount,

    You can make transfers into the retirement phase as long as you remain below the transfer balance cap.

    Special rules apply for defined benefit income streams.
