UniSuper webinars and seminars

Webinar - Changes to Deeming Rules for Account-Based Pensions

From 1 January 2015, income from account-based pensions will be assessed in the same way as other financial investments which could affect any entitlement to the Age Pension (or other government benefits).   In May’s Federal Budget, the Treasurer announced new deeming rules will also apply to new applicants for the Commonwealth Seniors Health Card (not yet legislated). Learn more about how these changes may potentially impact you.
