Convert your pension or retirement annuity to cash

If you’re a South African living overseas you can now turn your retirement annuity into cash and transfer the funds to your new home.

Convert your South African pension or retirement annuity to cash

If you’re a South African living overseas you can now turn your retirement annuity into cash and transfer the funds to your new home before the age of 55.  The funds can be used for any purpose, wherever you choose – you don’t have to reinvest into a local pension.


The opportunity exists because of a change to South African tax legislation in 2008, however you must complete a complicated exchange control process involving SARS, the Reserve Bank, your insurance company(s) and a high street bank.

To make it happen FinGlobal offers a complete solution, which more than 15 000 South African expats in 80 countries have so far taken advantage of. We have a 100% success rate, so you’re in very safe hands.

The process

It starts with a conversation – to determine the amount you can transfer and the process required in your case, we take you through a free, no obligation assessment. We’ll also provide a quote to carry out the work required – our fee is fixed and payable only once we have successfully completed the job. In short, you’ll know how much you can transfer, how long it will take and how much it will cost, before you make a decision.

Client testimonials

Thank you FinGlobal (previously cashkows) for saving our RA – we thought we would have to settle for a monthly pension, but cashkows organised for a full payout – now we have something solid for our retirement. Staff are fantastic and very knowledgeable. Well worth the low rate we were charged for super service.
