• Retiring

    Once you've retired, you can access a number of tax offsets, such as the seniors and pensioners tax offset and the superannuation income stream offset.

    The seniors and pensioners tax offset allows you to earn more money before you have to pay tax or the Medicare levy. There are eligibility conditions relating to age and income. The offset is non-refundable, but unused offset amounts may be transferred between spouses (in some circumstances).

    If you have income from an Australian superannuation income stream, you may be entitled to a tax offset if you are either in receipt of a disability superannuation benefit or death benefit income stream, or 60 or over.
