  • Can I use the transition to retirement rules within the PSS like the CSS and other types of super funds?
  • I’ve got to take a pension on a fortnightly basis?
  • How much can you take from a pension when you’re in the transition to retirement phase?
  • Is a transition to retirement arrangement tax free, both the account earnings and the pension payments?
