Usually held on the second Tuesday in May, this year’s Federal Budget has bucked the trend and will take place on Tuesday 3 May 2016. YourLifeChoices is again planning to attend the Budget Media Lock up so we can bring you all the Budget news and how the Federal Budget 2016/17 will affect your retirement and retirement plans. Keep an eye on your inbox on Tuesday evening for the Federal Budget summary and on Wednesday for our more in-depth report.

On the lead up to the Federal Budget 2016/17, we have examined the various mooted policy changes and what they will mean for Australian retirees and pre-retirees. We’ve also surveyed you, our members, on what you think of possible Budget changes and what you consider should be the focus of the Federal Budget 2016/17. The results of this survey will be submitted to the Treasurer for consideration.
