Flexible Income Commencement

Any time after the third year of your AGILE investment you can begin your lifetime income payments by converting your AGILE Investment Value to a guaranteed lifetime income stream.
Your lifetime income is determined by multiplying the value of your AGILE investment at the time you choose to start your income by your Lifetime Income Rate.

 

Your income will be paid every month for the rest of your life, or the rest of your spouse's life
(if applicable), guaranteed by Allianz Retire+ and will never decrease.

Income Payment Options

When you’re ready to start receiving income payments, you can choose between a fixed or rising Lifetime Income Payment option. Income is paid monthly in arrears.

 

Lifetime Income – Fixed

Receive a consistent and guaranteed income for life and enjoy the reassurance of knowing exactly how much you’ll receive each payment.

Lifetime Income – Rising

Receive a guaranteed income for life, plus opportunities for annual payment increases based on positive investment returns of the Australian Equity Index – Total Protection option.

Spouse Insured Option


The Spouse Insured Option may provide continued certainty for your spouse in the event of your death
– payments will continue for the lifetime of the Surviving Spouse.

*Please note that any AGILE benefits, including the income streams such as the Lifetime Income Payments and any other amounts, will be paid to the Investor only, and not to the Life Insured (or a Surviving Spouse, if applicable). Please see the AGILE PDS for more information.

Age Pension+ Option


By choosing the Age Pension+ Option, you may qualify for (or receive more) Age Pension payments due to AGILE being subject to a reduced Age Pension assets test treatment. If you haven’t already done so, commencing your Lifetime Income is the final opportunity to commence the Age Pension+ Option.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

You can begin your Lifetime Income Payments any time after three years of the commencement date of your AGILE investment.

The amount you receive will be determined by multiplying your Investment Value on the Lifetime Income Commencement Date by the applicable Lifetime Income Rate.

Your Lifetime Income will also depend on whether the Age Pension+ Option is selected and whether the Spouse Insured Option is selected.

Income Estimator

Your Lifetime Income Payments will be paid monthly in arrears.

Your lifetime income will be paid for the rest of your life and for the lifetime of your spouse if they outlive you (applicable if the Spouse Insured Option is selected).

AGILE offers the option of rising income payments. Under this option your guaranteed income will increase each year by any positive annual return of the Australian equity index (up to the Maximum Return). 

Increases to your income accumulate over time, and will never go backwards – even if the index delivers a negative return.

Any withdrawals made during the first 10 years of your AGILE investment greater than your Lifetime Income Payment are treated as excess withdrawals and will be subject to a charge called a Market Value Adjustment. After 10 years, there is no Market Value Adjustment.

Withdrawals in excess of your Lifetime Income Payments will reduce your future income payments by the percentage of Investment Value withdrawn.

If you select the Age Pension+ Option, all withdrawals (partial and full) are treated as excess withdrawals and will reduce your future income payments.

If you intend to receive the Age Pension as one of your sources of income in retirement, the Age Pension+ Option may be an option for you.

For the purpose of social security means tests, AGILE is treated as an asset-tested income stream (lifetime) product. As a result, selecting the Age Pension+ Option will mean your AGILE investment will be subject to a favourable Age Pension assets test treatment.

By selecting the Age Pension+ Option you may become eligible for the Age Pension or receive higher Age Pension entitlements.

It’s important to be aware that electing the Age Pension+ Option will reduce the Withdrawal Value and benefit payable upon death and will vary the applicable Lifetime Income Rates.

For non-superannuation money, we will pay out any remaining investment value to your nominated beneficiary or estate in the case of individuals, or to the company or trustee for non-superannuation money (including through a Platform). For superannuation money we will pay out any remaining Investment Value  to the superannuation fund trustee, and your lifetime income payments will cease.

If the Age Pension+ Option is chosen, the amount payable on death will be subject to a maximum known as the Age Pension+ Maximum Benefit on Death, which may be greater or less than the Investment Value at that time.

If the Spouse Insured Option is chosen, in the event of death of the Life Insured, the Investor will continue to receive the Lifetime Income Payments for the remaining lifetime of the Surviving Spouse, or the Investor may choose a lump sum payment.
