National Treasury issued a discussion document on the 2013 Retirement Reform Proposals which can be found here.
These proposals follow a series of technical discussion papers with draft proposals that were issued in 2012, after 2012 Budget announcements by the Minister of Finance. Over the course of 2012, both formal and informal consultations were held in respect of these papers with stakeholders, including unions, industry associations, product providers, intermediary associations, and members of the public. Following on from these consultations, the Government has developed revised policy proposals for further consultation.
