tax free if you are over age 60. You can also use your money so that you
have a regular income in retirement.

Starting a pension if you haven’t retired
If you have reached your preservation age and want to reduce your working hours but not your
income, you may be able to take advantage of the Transition to Retirement Pension. This pension
enables you to top up your reduced income with a regular income stream from your pension account.
To find out more about these pension options and if you are eligible to apply, we recommend that
you speak to your financial adviser.
Protection for you and your beneficiaries
We understand that you and your loved ones could be financially disadvantaged in the event of your
death or if you become unable to work due to disability or illness. MasterKey Custom can help ease
this burden by:

of your death
• Providing a choice of insurance options
Estate Planning Options
Everyone should consider the way their superannuation monies can best be used in the event
of their death. With MasterKey Custom Superannuation you can choose a:
• Binding death benefit nomination which, when valid, binds the Trustee to pay your benefit
to the dependant(s) or estate as nominated
• Non-binding death benefit nomination which notifies the Trustee of your preferred beneficiary
but is not binding
• Reversionary beneficiary which, as a pension member, results in your regular pension
payments being paid to your beneficiary in the event of your death
Access to Insurance
MasterKey Custom Superannuation offers you insurance that can protect you or your dependants
against the financial disadvantages that can result from your death or disability.
Insurance options available through MasterKey Custom Superannuation include:
• Death Cover – Can enable an additional amount to be paid to your nominated beneficiaries
in the case of your death (separate to your superannuation benefit)
• Total and Permanent Disability (TPD) Cover – Can enable an additional amount to be paid

Your choice of broker, ‘fast tracked’ trading, no online transaction fees
With MasterKey Custom, your adviser can trade ASX Listed Investment Options online with a broker
of your choice, potentially saving you money on brokerage costs. Your adviser can also trade ASX Listed
Investment Options with some brokers within 10 minutes, thereby accessing the share market faster
and reducing the time you have to wait for the trades to settle. Plus, we don’t charge you transaction fees
when your financial adviser places your ‘buy’ or ‘sell’ instructions for you online^.
^ Brokerage and other expenses may apply.
When you sell ASX Listed Investment Options, you may have to wait a few days until the sale proceeds clear
into your cash account before you can use these monies to buy other securities. In that time, you could be left
out of the market and may miss out on a ‘buy’ opportunity. With MasterKey Custom, you can sell your ASX Listed
Investment Options and use the pending sale proceeds to buy other ASX Listed Investment Options on the same
day, thus maximising your exposure to the market§.

you as your investment grows, featuring:
• Wholesale investment management fees from Investment Managers (including rebates)
• A simple fee structure
The fees and other costs you pay are disclosed inclusive of GST and net of RITCs*.
* Reduced Input Tax Credit (RITC) is a rebate of 75% on the GST component of the charge, reducing the overall cost.

Investment Options which are offered direct to the public (through retail managed funds).
Investment management fee rebates

Multiple Account Pricing
If you have money invested in multiple personal superannuation and/or pension accounts within MasterKey
Custom Superannuation (eg a superannuation account and a Transition to Retirement Pension), the applicable
Administration fee rate will be determined by combining the balance of these accounts. The higher the combined
balance of your accounts in MasterKey Custom Superannuation, the lower the applicable Administration fee
rate can be.
Joe has a superannuation account and a Transition to Retirement Pension within MasterKey Custom
Superannuation. The superannuation account has a balance of $200,000 and the Transition to Retirement
Pension has a balance of $200,000.
If the Administration fee was calculated on the balance of each account, the Administration fee rate applicable
to each account would be 1.15% pa. However, with Multiple Account Pricing, the Administration fee rate applies
to the combined balance of $400,000. Therefore, the Administration fee rate reduces to 0.75% pa.
MLC Manager of Managers (MoM) Discount on Administration fees
If you hold $1 million or more in MLC MoM Investment Options across MasterKey Custom’s products,
you will receive a 0.10% pa discount on your Administration fees.
Family group linking discount
