What is a retirement annuity?

A retirement annuity (RA) is a tax efficient investment vehicle designed for individual investors who are not exposed to a workplace retirement fund or for investors who want to supplement their pension or provident fund savings.

How does a retirement annuity work?

RAs allow your money to grow tax-free and also allows you to deduct your contributions up to 27.5% or R350 000 of your annual taxable income. Any contributions above the annual deduction limit can be rolled over to the following year.

Your RA can be accessed from age 55 onwards unless you retire early due to ill-health or emigrate to another country. At retirement, one third of your investment can be withdrawn as a lump sum (subject to lump sum tax) and the remainder of the investment must go towards a compulsory annuity. If your balance is less than R247,500 you can withdraw 100% of your RA in cash.

What are the benefits of a retirement annuity?

  • Savings are protected from creditors (Savings are safe regardless of any financial loss experienced in your life)
  • Tax benefits, tax-deferral allows income tax to be paid at a later stage when funds begin to be withdrawn
  • Provides savings for retirement
