You've got plenty of flexibility within your NGS Income account around how you receive your income payments. There are some conditions to meet, but generally, how much you receive and how often is up to you.

How much could I get paid?

You can choose your income payment amount to suit your needs — as long as you receive at least the legislated minimum. Your minimum amount will depend on your age. It’s calculated as a percentage of your account balance at the start of the financial year.

Accessing your super in retirement

Retirement is an opportunity to focus on doing the things you love. You've been working hard and saving your super for precisely this time of your life — so, here's how to make the most of it.

Nominating beneficiaries

Under Australian law, your super isn’t automatically included in your estate, so making a will isn’t enough. That's why it's important to nominate beneficiaries — it can help ensure your super ends up in the right hands.
