Luke on 2CC – Misconceptions around pension payments

Financial Planner Luke Smith joined 2CC Talking Canberra 1206AM in Money Matters, which aired on Friday 2 February 2024 with Leon Delaney. Thanks for joining us on 2CC or your favourite podcast streaming service. This week’s show considers some of the common misconceptions people have around pension payments in retirement.  Leon starts the show however by asking a question, what should you do if you won the $200 million Powerball?

Key topics covered include:

  • What is a pension from super?
  • Here are some pension payment misconceptions:
    • Can I go back to work if I start a pension from super?
    • Do I get a fortnightly payment?
    • When I start a pension, I need to cash out my investments into a bank account? No don’t!
    • Can I add money back into super if I’m not working? Yes you maybe able to, it’s got nothing to do with your employment status.
    • Can I add more money to my pension once I retire?
    • Do I pay tax on the sale of assets inside of a pension?
  • Luke shares his top tips around pension payments.
