Temporary reduction in drawdown requirements

The Federal Government has announced a new temporary reduction in the minimum drawdown requirements for account-based pensions and similar products by 50% for both the current financial year, and next.

With many retirees seeing their super account balances reduce in value significantly due to share market volatility due to the Corona Virus pandemic, this rule change may assist retirees who do not wish to sell their investment assets while the value of those assets is reduced.

Here’s how it works depending on your age

Your age            Default minimum drawdown rates (%)    Reduced rates by 50% for 2019-20 & 2020-21


65 – 74                                                  5%                                                                          2.5%
75 – 79                                                  6%                                                                          3%
80 – 84                                                  7%                                                                          3.5%
90 – 94                                                  11%                                                                        5.5%
95 or over                                           14%                                                                        7%


If you’ve already drawn more than the new minimum, you can elect not to receive any further money from your account-based pension this financial year.
