The transfer balance cap is a lifetime limit on the total amount of superannuation that can be transferred into retirement phase income stream products. From 1 July 2021, when the transfer balance cap is indexed to $1.7 million, every individual will have a personal transfer balance cap between $1.6 and $1.7 million, depending on whether they have previously transferred funds to a retirement account and their individual circumstances. Indexation will only apply to the unused portion of the Transfer Balance cap.
