RBF Life Pension

An RBF Life Pension is a retirement product offered by RBF to eligible members and former members that will pay you an income for the rest of your life (if eligible).

An RBF Life Pension is a fortnightly pension paid for life which is indexed twice yearly in line with inflation.

It is not available to all RBF members.

RBF does not charge fees on RBF Life Pensions. Your pension will be credited fortnightly on a Wednesday to your account with your nominated financial institution. Pensions are also paid to interstate and overseas members.

If your life pension is purchased using funds from the Contributory Scheme you will have a Contributory Scheme Life Pension.

If your life pension is purchased using funds from another complying superannuation fund (if eligible) you will have an RBF Life Pension.

For more information (including eligibility), please read the Contributory Scheme Life Pension fact sheet for members of the Contributory Scheme.

Any member who is planning to retire in the next couple of years should book an appointment now with RBF to discuss your benefit options. Call the RBF Enquiry Line on 1800 622 631 to arrange an appointment.  Application forms will be provided once your eligibility has been confirmed.
