Podcast141: What You Should Know About ARFs

17th June 2019

Paddy Delaney


Welcome, and thanks for checking out Informed Decisions Blog. Over the past couple of weeks we have focused on managing finances in later life. Last week we explored the 2 options many of us have when we get to draw our retirement funds, Annuity or ARF.

Seeing as it currently accounts for the majority of retirement income strategies it will form a large part of coming weeks. We will be exploring how one can attempt to maximise the income one gets from an ARF. Make sure you stay till the end because we will also be exploring how you can aim to ensure that your ARF lasts at least as long as you do – and hopefully longer, potentially leaving a sizeable legacy to loved-ones.

This week we will now share insights on some really important aspects of Approved Retirement Funds (ARFs). I was being a little cheeky calling this ‘what you should know about ARFs’ but I do honestly believe these are the basics. I also believe that knowing these fundamentals will help, whether you already have an ARF, or will have one in the future.

We will determine how ARF-income is taxed, how it is handled on death, and explore how you can maximise the income you get from your ARF. This latter element is an entire science on it’s own however I will intro the main aspects to consider.
