Running a SMSF

Once you have set up your SMSF with iCare Super, you will be responsible to manage your super money and comply with the relative legislation.

Accumulation Phase

You and other members will organise rollovers of your super money into your SMSF. Also, you will get the employer contributions, member contributions and other contributions transferred into the self managed super fund.

While your super fund balance grows by more contributions, you may need to invest your superannuation money to maximise the returns. You need to invest in accordance with the SMSF investment strategy and ensure the investment risks have been considered carefully and the level of the risks can be accepted based on your circumstance.

Pension Phase

Once you reach the preservation age, you can start taking out money from your SMSF. You can commence a transition to retirement pension while you are still working full time. After you reach your preservation age and full retired, or you turn 65, you can access the full balance of your super money.
