RetirementThe period leading up to retirement is crucial and key decisions need to be made now, not later. Having a sound financial plan in place, and sticking to it, is vital when it comes to achieving your financial goals.

But it’s also just as important to regularly review your plan to make sure that it still meets your personal needs.
Your super plan has helped you build your retirement savings. Now you probably have many questions, such as how to invest the lump sum that you’re likely to receive from your employer when you stop full time work. How to get adequate, regular income...and how you may be able to maximise Centrelink benefits?

What we hear from most people approaching retirement is: ‘I hope my money will last’ and ‘will I be able to live the life I want?’

As financial planners, we can answer your questions, look at your individual situation, discuss what you have in mind for the future and how best to achieve these goals. We also have access to products and services from other leading fund managers as well as AMP
