Ready to Retire?

If you're ready to retire, there are some important decisions to make before you begin the next chapter of your life. A few careful steps now can help you achieve your goals and live the retirement lifestyle you want.

Moving on to the next stage in your life

Due to Media Super merging with Cbus, Media Super Pension accounts have closed and been moved to a Cbus Super Income Stream.

We appreciate change can bring uncertainty. Please be assured all practical pension product options were scrutinised for benefits and the need to act in the best financial interests of our members.

For members with an existing Media Super Pension account, your benefits have been transferred to a new Cbus Super Income Stream and will continue to provide you with a regular pension payment. You will also enjoy additional benefits, such as:

  • Fortnightly payments in addition to monthly, quarterly, half-yearly and yearly options
  • Additional flexibility on how payments are drawn down from investments
  • Retirement Spending Planner and Advice Services.

Named Money Magazine’s Best Pension Fund for 2022, you’re in great hands with Cbus.

Moving out of the workforce and into retirement can be an exciting yet daunting process. You can finally access the super savings you've been working hard to build over the course of your working life. But how you access those savings can have an impact on how you're able to live during retirement, so it's important to consider your options.
