Transition to retirement calculator

For members approaching their preservation age this calculator describes alternative ways to use their super to achieve their retirement goals. Depending on a members personal circumstances and goals, their alternatives may assist in:

  • boosting income before retirement
  • boosting the super balance on retirement
  • supplementing income while moving to part-time work.

Find out how a Transition to Retirement strategy can help you ease into retired life.

Contribution planner

Want to get an overall picture of your super contributions, take-home pay and tax? Worried about going over the contribution caps? Could you be eligible for Government super co-contributions? The contribution planner gives you a snapshot of your financial situation and how your contributions to your accumulation super account are tracking.
Note: This calculator only takes into account accumulation super and does not include contributions to a Defined Benefit account.

Investment choice tool

The investment choice tool is an interactive way to learn about UniSuper’s range of investment options. Learn more about each of our options, build your own portfolio and see a breakdown of growth versus defensive assets for your chosen investments.
Note:  This calculator is only for accumulation super, pension members or for the accumulation component of your Defined Benefit account.
