MyMoney Online, The Personal Finance series with Warren Ingram

Treasury delays (some) retirement reforms. Here’s what it means for you…

Treasury has set aside – by two more years – the new requirement that provident fund members must annuitise two thirds of their pension at retirement.

Provident fund members can, at the moment, take their whole benefit as a lump sum at retirement.

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed Galileo Capital Financial Advisor Warren Ingram for his weekly personal finance feature.

Ingram discussed what the delay in retirement reforms means for your pocket.
