About the webinar

In an effort to encourage South Africans to save more for their retirement as well as to harmonise the tax treatment and annuitisation requirements for all types of retirement funds, the National Treasury’s provident fund annuitisation proposals are set to finally be implemented on 1 March 2021. 

To understand exactly what these changes mean for you and your clients, our hour-long webinar will explore key themes, including:

  • T-Day: how did we get here
  • Compulsory annuitisation of provident fund benefits at retirement
  • Vesting rights for existing provident benefits
  • Impact on members nearing retirement
  • Portability between retirement funds
