What is the age requirement to start an SMSF pension?

The age requirement to start an SMSF pension depends on the type of pension. For an account-based pension, the member must have reached their preservation age, which is currently between 55 and 60, depending on the member’s birthdate. For a transition to retirement income stream (TRIS), the member can commence the pension once they reach their preservation age, even if they are still working.
