Do I have to have the Smarter SMSF Deed to use the Lost Pension Deed and Replacement Pension Agreement?

Some of the documentation, such as the ability to be a Paramount Document are unique to the Smarter Deed, however, you still have the ability to create this Deed and pension documentation using an external trust deed.

Why wouldn't you simply commute and repurchase the pension?

There are several reasons as to why this may be the case.  If the pension was established prior to 1 January 2015 and the member is in receipt of the age pension, any cessation and repurchase of the income stream will change the deeming rules on the income test and could impact the individual’s level of age pension.  Furthermore, where the pension ceases and the member has any accumulation benefit, this will impact the tax-free and taxable proportions of the income stream.  This is particularly relevant now with many members needing to commute to comply with the introduction of the transfer balance cap.

Has this document been tested in the courts or via the ATO?

No, the formulation of this Deed and supporting documents have simply followed important case law on previously untested topics within Re Narumon [2018] QSC 185, (https://www.queenslandjudgments.com.au/case/id/311718).  Where you would like to obtain further legal advice in respect to this document, you can contact our legal support team at Hill Legal to discuss further.  

I have multiple pensions that are lost for a member. How many pensions does the Deed cover?

The Lost Pension Deed only covers one pension and includes the Replacement Pension Agreement for that specific income stream.  You will need to create multiple deeds and agreements for more than one pension.
