Keep your money working for you in retirement

Your super doesn’t have to stop working when you do.

  • Choose a payment frequency that suits you

  • Automatically invested for you according to your age, or choose your own investments from a mix of 38 different options.

We’ll adjust your investment mix as you grow older, or you can choose to personalise from a mix of 38 different investment options.

See and manage your retirement savings online with your Westpac, St.George, Bank of Melbourne and BankSA everyday banking.

It is easy to set up regular payments or make one-off withdrawals from your account to suit you.

It's easy to rollover your super from another fund before you start your pension. All we need is your TFN and other fund details and we'll do the rest. Remember there is a limit (set by the government) on the amount you can transfer into a pension. Learn about this limit.

How it works

1. When you're winding back

If you're at the age you can retire, you can start to withdraw from your super, even if you are still working, with a BT Super for Life – Transition to Retirement account.

2. When you retire

Your super doesn’t have to stop working when you do. Choose an investment strategy and payment frequency to suit you in retirement with a BT Super for Life – Pension account.

3. Easily bring all your super into one account

You can take advantage of our online rollover tool to transfer money you have in other super accounts to your new BT Super for Life account.

What fees will I pay?

At BT we work hard to give your super the best chance to grow. No commissions, withdrawal or contribution fees means more money in your super account.
