Managing the transition to aged care

It’s one of life’s inevitabilities that one day you, your partner or your parents will need to move into aged care. Naturally, you’ll want the best possible outcome for all concerned.

However, this can be a very emotional and testing time, and there’s a lot to consider. In fact, you’re required to make sometimes difficult and complex decisions which can affect the level of aged care fees to be paid, the pension payments you or your loved one receive, the timing of any sale of the family home and more.

That’s why it’s important – even critical ­– to get financial advice, ideally before you start the transition to aged care. You need to talk to someone who understands the challenges and complexities and can provide advice on which you can depend.

That’s why Challenger, one of the most trusted names in retirement income, has partnered with Money Solutions Pty Limited to set up a new service to help people make the right decisions. The Aged Care Financial Advice Helpline offers an obligation-free initial call and impartial advice which could help you avoid costly mistakes.
