When you reach preservation age (the age at which you can access your superannuation if you are retired or have started a transition-to-retirement income stream), then you can access your superannuation as an income stream. A transition-to-retirement income stream may allow you to reduce working hours as you approach retirement, fund salary sacrifice contributions and reduce personal debt.
most of your assets
Making the most of your assets with a range of tax and contribution strategies is an effective income generator for retirement. We can help you review your desired income for retirement and optimise it through superannuation, pension and salary sacrifice options. We will review the timing of these strategies and the impact of tax both pre- and post-retirement.
cash flow and debt
As you work towards retirement, it is important to have a clear understanding of when you can afford to retire. Directing surplus cash flow now – in the most appropriate way – along with reviewing how to pay off your mortgage and manage investment debt is a critical part of the process. We can advise you on some of the best strategies to support this goal.
your Centrelink and Age Pension Entitlements
If you have reached Age Pension age, the Age Pension may help to support you in retirement. We can assist you in determining your eligibility for the Age Pension and how this may assist you with supplementing your income once you cease working. If you are not ready to finish working, there are also a number of other benefits for pensioners to remain in the workforce which Centrelink can offer such as the Work Bonus and Pension Bonus Scheme. We are experts when it comes to Centrelink and we can help you determine what your entitled to.
from pensions, superannuation and SMSFs
Maximising the benefits of your superannuation is critical to growing your wealth for retirement. This can include salary sacrificing, after-tax contributions, defined benefit scheme contributions and establishing an SMSF if it is suitable to do so. We are SMSF specialists and can guide you through the benefits and considerations to determine if this is the most appropriate structure to support your retirement objectives.
