We have been working with Yield since 2008. As pre-retirees with a history of investing into property, we saw considerable synergies working with Yield as our Financial Planners.

Yield assisted us to formulate a financial plan and has been pivotal in helping us to actively manage and evolve it since. We use the services of Yield Equities for direct share exposure in our SMSF and we are very happy with how the team work together. Yield delivers cohesive advice that we can see is in our best interest. Now as we enter into retirement, we feel peace of mind that we have a well balanced strategy and are in good hands.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Self Managed Super Fund (SMSF)?

A Self-Managed Super Fund is a private super fund that allows individuals to manage their own retirement savings. You can have up to 6 members, all of whom must be trustees or directors of the trustee company and are responsible for investment decisions and compliance.  A SMSF provides more control and flexibility over investment choices and retirement savings compared to other types of super funds.

However, it’s important to consider that managing an SMSF also comes with greater responsibility and potential costs. Whether an SMSF is worthwhile depends on your individual circumstances, investment goals, super balance, and willingness to take on the responsibilities involved. Seeking professional advice can help you evaluate whether the benefits of having an SMSF will outweigh the costs in your specific situation.

When can I access my self-managed super fund?

This can either be as a transition to retirement pension, while you are still working, or a full account-based pension, once you retire. Apart from this, there are other conditions under which you can access your self-managed super fund which include. 


Common conditions of release:

  • Termination of employment at or after age 60.
  • Turning 65, no matter if you’ve retired or not.
  • Death of the member (benefits go to beneficiaries).


Special circumstances:

  • Termination of employment.
  • Leaving Australia Permanently
  • Temporary or permanent incapacity.
  • Severe financial hardship.
  • Diagnosis of a terminal medical condition
  • Using the first home super saver scheme

Can I transfer my super into a SMSF?

Yes, you can transfer your existing super into a SMSF. This process involves rolling over your current super balance into your SMSF account.


To do this smoothly, you’ll need to ensure your SMSF is registered and ready to receive contributions, complete a rollover request, and handle other necessary documentation. If you’re unsure about the transfer process, it’s highly advisable to seek professional guidance. They can assist you in navigating the steps involved and ensure a seamless transition into your SMSF.
