Estate planning

A final thing to remember is that any changes to your super strategy may have a knock-on effect for your estate planning.

If you move assets out of the pension phase to stay under the $1.6 million transfer balance cap, then you’ll need to think about what will happen to these assets after you pass away.

For example, you might have to put a binding death nomination on money moved back to the accumulation phase, or else update your will to account for any assets you take out of super.

Your financial adviser can review your estate plan while updating your super arrangements, to make sure any changes are accounted for.
