Hi Liz,

Hi Bob,

Thank you for your question.

National Australia Bank Limited’s (NAB) ABN is 12 004 044 937. About the fund address, you may want to contact NAB to check to guarantee that you will have the correct address based on your NAB Retirement account.

Hope this helps.

Is a NAB retirement account ever viewed as a superannuation product within an SMSF or is it always viewed as a joint savings account?


Jhezelyn Finder

October 23, 2018

Hello Stephen,

Thank you for your comment.

The NAB Retirement account is not a superannuation account and is also not a joint savings account. You may instead refer to our list of superannuation accounts. You can use our comparison table to compare super funds accounts based on performance, fees, and insurance options. Then click the ‘More info’ feature to compare admin fees, the number of members in each super fund.

Self funded retiree with no government pension or Centrelink payments, can l still qualify for a NAB Retirement Account?


Jason Finder

January 25, 2017

Hi Raymond,

Thank you for your enquiry.

In order to qualify for the NAB Retirement account, you need to be receiving a government pension or Centrelink payments.

However, you may apply for NAB Classic Banking account instead. You may also check out these fee-free bank account options to learn how you can further save on your financial transactions.

I hope this helps.

Kind regards,
