Commonwealth Preservation Age

Oct 28 2019

The Commonwealth Preservation Age (CPA) is used to determine the amount of taxation members will pay on their lump sum superannuation benefits only if they elect to receive these benefits in cash, and where they are under their CPA at that time.

Superannuation benefits taken as a defined benefit income stream are not affected by CPA taxation rates and rules.
