Keep your super safe and consider accessing equity in your home

Font Size:

Last week Josh Funder wrote for YourLifeChoices about the importance of trying to protect your superannuation balance during the unprecedented economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Unsurprisingly, there was enormous interest in this article from YourLifeChoices members, so we invited Mr Funder to join us for an exclusive interview to further explain the options open to retirees struggling through this difficult time.

He outlines why it is such a terrible time to access or withdraw the funds from your super right now, and shares some of the lessons we all should have learnt from the Global Financial Crisis.

He talks about the benefits of accessing the equity in your home, as well as how household loans work, whether your property is ever at risk and how and when the loans are repaid.

If, after listening to the podcast, you have further questions about how a household loan could work for you, you can contact the Household Capital team at or call on 1300 622 100.

    I must say I was super nervous using this site being that I never bought an essay online. But am a satisfied customer. I needed an essay to turn in the next day and had to be 5 pages long. Although the writer had to extend my time twice by a couple of hours, it was all worth the wait. I will defiantly be ordering more essays from Ewriters service. I am really busy with work, I really didn’t have the time to write this essay. Very helpful service.
