  • recapping on the taxation arrangements on lifetime and death benefits
  • discussing the implications of electing for a payment not to be treated as anincome stream
  • exploring the benefit of rolling back a pension now and commencing a new onelater
  • planning for income and salary sacrificing to maximise benefits
  • considering the opportunities with estate planning.
