Transferring your South African retirement annuity or pension

Sable International's financial emigration service helps South Africans who have emigrated cash in and transfer the full value of their retirement annuity, pension and provident fund before the retirement age of 55. Once these funds are recovered and taxed, they can be transferred abroad.

Transfer your South African retirement funds offshore

Changes to legislation in 2008 allow South Africans who have financially emigrated via the South African Reserve Bank (SARB), to transfer their retirement funds before they mature.
