    Is it correct that funds in a St George Retirement Access Account can be a tax deduction

      Hi Jenny,

      Thanks for your comment and I hope you are doing well.

      It’s helpful to know that as this is a standard everyday transaction account for people aged over 55 the money can’t be claimed as a tax deduction.
      Hope this helps and feel free to reach out to us again for further assistance.

      Best,
      Nikki

    Can I have more than one Retirement Access Plus Cheque account? I would like to have two separate fee free savings accounts so as to keep track of income and spending.
