Plan for your biggest holiday
Why is it that people spend so much time arranging a short two week getaway but put very little effort into planning the biggest holiday of their life - retirement? It’s a little crazy, but we get it. Superannuation can be complex. Knowing where to turn for financial advice can be difficult, especially when you don’t really know the questions you should ask.
Enter the VISSF Advice Team.
Whether you have simple questions, or you’re interested in more complex subjects, a chat with the VISSF Advice Team can help set things straight. Our expert advice team is here to talk you through the basics of managing your super. And if you’re not sure what to ask, we’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions to get you started.
Which investment option is right for me?
With super, it’s easy to set and forget. But your investment choices can make a big difference to your retirement balance. We can help you maximise your retirement income by providing advice on the most suitable investment mix to match your current situation.
Do I have enough insurance cover?
It’s important to have the right amount of insurance cover to meet your needs. Too little cover could mean you and your loved ones are not adequately protected should something unexpected happen. Or if your cover is too high, your premiums may eat into your super balance. Talk to us to find the right balance.
What are contribution strategies and which is best for me?
Beyond compulsory employer contributions, there are a range of strategies you can tap into. Contributing from your own pocket could mean more money for you in retirement, with potential tax benefits today. We can walk you through the options and help you select the right strategies.
What do I need to consider for retirement?
As you look forward to life after work, it’s common to feel a little confused and overwhelmed about your super. Our advice team can help you confidently transition to retirement, manage your assets more effectively and put strategies in place to make sure you get everything you are entitled to.
