Retirement is like a long vacation in Las Vegas. The goal is to enjoy it the fullest, but not so fully that you run out of money.

If you’re worried about whether you’ll have enough money for retirement, you’re not alone.

With superannuation, pensions and Centrelink, planning for retirement can be complex and overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.

We can help you take the complexity and stress out of planning for your retirement.

We can help you identify how much is enough and develop a strategy to help you get there.

The best retirements are planned for years in advance. Whether that’s travelling around Australia, going overseas every year or spending more time with the grandchildren, we help take the stress out of your retirement so you can focus on what really matters.

transition-to-retirement strategies

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.

Make the
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.
