Retirement is a time of new possibilities and rich experiences.It’s all a question of getting organised with your finances. How do you want to live? What do you dream of doing? How can you achieve those dreams? Whether retirement is fast approaching or a few years away NGS Super can provide the guidance you need, from growing your super in the years leading to retirement to planning the right type of pension.
NGS Accumulation Account
An accumulation account is one of the most common ways for members to manage their retirement savings. NGS Super accumulation accounts offer a variety of investment options with easy online administration, allowing you to take control and choose the right investment strategy for your life circumstances.
In the event that you have not specified a choice of investment strategy, your contributions are invested by NGS Super in the default investment option, known as Diversified (MySuper).
If you want a professional opinion and would like to consult someone who’s professionally qualified, an NGS Financial Planner can help. They not only have an in-depth understanding of your NGS accumulation and income account options, but they’re authorised to give personal advice about a wide range of investment and wealth-building topics outside of super.

Transition to retirement
You’re fit, healthy and enjoy your job. If you’ve reached your preservation age, you have the option of easing into retirement. It’s a way of encouraging people like you to stay active in the workforce.
You can now draw down on your super pension while still working. No restrictions are placed on the number of work hours required. What’s more, you can choose to work part time or continue to work full time.
Top up your reduced income with your super
Okay. You may be earning less salary, so you can access a regular ‘income stream’ from your NGS Super account. This is called the transition to retirement pension. You can roll some or all of your superannuation into it.

NGS Income Account
Many superannuation funds offer an account based pension. So does NGS Super – but we like to call it an income account because we are providing a regular income to you in retirement.
If you’re thinking about retirement, our income account pension is a flexible and tax-effective way to convert your lump sum retirement benefit into a regular income stream. You may also qualify for special treatment under the income test for the government age pension.
What type of Income Account can I have?
The NGS Income account is available either as an account-based pension (for retirees and people aged 65) or as a transition to retirement pension generally for individuals who have reached their preservation age ( If you were born between 1 July 1961 and 30 June 1962, your preservation age will be 57) and still working.
If you start a transition to retirement pension, you will need to notify us if you meet a condition of release such as:
- you have ceased employment and permanently retired from the workforce (if less than age 60);
- you have ceased employment since attaining age 60, even if you have not permanently retired;
- you have turned 65
so we can transfer you from a transition to retirement pension to the account based pension where investment earnings are tax-free.
