New super rules still causing issues for defined benefit super members...

20 March 2018
(6:00pm start)
RSM Australia Equinox Building 4 Level 2, 70 Kent Street, Deakin
Are you in CSS or PSS and do you know if you are still being affected by the recent super changes?

We know that some members have recently received warning letters from their super fund, or the ATO, about being impacted by the changes to superannuation rules. These letters have been mainly aimed at those in the public sector defined benefit schemes.

Join the RSM team to hear about the issues you may be facing and how to navigate through them without stress.


Chris is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER® with significant experience providing advice on superannuation, managed investments and retirement income streams. His deep knowledge of Commonwealth defined benefit superannuation schemes has helped enhance the lives of many public sector employees and their families, allowing them to achieve the best possible outcomes and giving them the freedom to enjoy the things they care about most.


Do you know what to do?

We will be discussing:

Exceeding contribution limits and paying more tax

Defined benefits and the total superannuation balance limit

What payments from your employer are counting towards your contribution limits?

Will you go over your limits? Will you pay more tax?

What are your options going forward?

Do you know how your defined benefit account is valued?

What if you are over the limit? Can you still contribute?

Do you have any other super accounts? They count too.

Where to from here?
