Notes:

  • There is no maximum drawdown expect if the pension is a TTR or Market Linked pension;
  • The minimum drawdown in the 2008/9, 2009/10 and 2010/11 years was halved in response to the global financial crisis;
  • The minimum payment should be pro-rated for pensions starting part-way through a year;
  • There is no minimum payment required for pensions started after 1 June; and
  • Minimum is rounded to nearest ten dollars, but be careful to leave a margin as missing the minimum payment could lead to no tax exempt income claim being allowed.
