You can transfer other super amounts from:
- another regulated superannuation fund
- an Approved Deposit Fund
- a Retirement Savings Account
- the SHA Special Account (previously known as the Superannuation Holding Account Reserve – SHAR).
On receiving your transfer amount, MilitarySuper must deduct 15% tax on any untaxed portion. Amounts transferred into MilitarySuper from other superannuation funds will not count under your super contribution limits but if your amount is over $1 million, your transferring fund will withhold tax at the top marginal tax rate.
You generally cannot withdraw your benefit until you reach your preservation age and permanently retire from the workforce. Keep in mind, this may not be the same date you claim your MilitarySuper benefit.
