How does restarting an Income account work?
As a Sunsuper for life member, you always have a Super-savings account available for when you need it. Don’t worry, while you don’t have a balance in the Super-savings account you don’t pay any fees.
You can restart your Income account anytime with as little as an additional $10,000. If you want to combine a number of different amounts, you’ll need to combine them in your Super-savings account before you restart your Income account. Find out more about adding to your super.
Once you’re ready, your existing Income account is closed, and the money is combined with your Super-savings account balance. A new Income account is then started to continue your payments.
Your Sunsuper membership and how you manage your account remains the same, including access to Member Online, your investment and drawdown set-up, beneficiaries, and any third party authorities you may have.
It’s important to know your money will be invested in a Super-savings account while amounts are combined, so Super-savings account fees will apply. If you’ve not made an investment choice, your money will be invested in the default investment option. Read the Sunsuper for life guide for more information.
