Aged Care Strategy – Superannuation – Switch grandfathering off by commuting and rolling over grandfathered account based pensions to apply deeming

This can benefit people who:

  • have a grandfathered account based pension where the assessable income from the pension exceeds the deemed income on an equivalent amount.

Potential Benefits:

  • May increase entitlement to pensions or allowances under the income test where deeming results in less assessable income than the income assessment for grandfathered account based pensions
  • May reduce aged care fees due to reduction in assessable income

Things to be aware of:

  • The income test assessment of a grandfathered account based pension is: “annual payment – deductible amount”
  • By rolling over a grandfathered account based pension to a new account based pension, the income stream will be deemed under the income test
  • In some cases deeming may produce less assessable income than “annual payment – deductible amount”
  • Deeming rates may increase over time.
