After 16 years of publishing information about retirement income, it is clear that most Australians are more confused than ever about their possible Age Pension entitlements. Those who do receive a full or part age Pension are often confused by changes in entitlements, while those yet to apply for a pension are daunted by the 26-page Centrelink application form. To say nothing of the concerns many have with revealing assets that could be used against them at some future date. Seeing a planner is an option and many YourLifeChoices members have found this to be very helpful. But not everyone can afford to pay a planner, nor is there universal satisfaction with all planners’ advice.
So, what to do and where to go to better understand the Age Pension rules on income, assets and residency?
The good news is that YourLifeChoices has a solution.
Last year we spent many long hours creating and testing a ‘one-stop-shop’ online tool which helps pre-retirees and current retirees plan or check their pension entitlements, including how much they can reasonably expect to receive. This RetirePlanner™ takes around 45-minutes to complete and you can save and change your data as many times as you like. It is filed safely in the cloud, for your private access at any time. You can also print and share this information with a financial professional should you engage one. The price of the tool is $19.95 and this amount is fully refundable if you are not totally satisfied.
But wait, there’s more!
On Saturday 17 March, the entire YourLifeChoices team is conducting a workshop to help our members better understand the rules, the regulations and their individual circumstances in retirement.
Even better, all attendees will receive free access to the RetirePlanner™ Tool. And we will be showing you how you can use this tool to keep strong control over your retirement expenditure as well as your pension entitlements.
Our life circumstances can change without warning, so it is really important to stay up-to-date on how our situation might affect our income.
So, click this link if you are interested in learning more about the YourLifeChoices RetirePlanner™ Tool or the Retirement Bootcamp on Saturday 17 March.
You will NOT receive annoying calls about this.
But you will be notified when registration opens next week so you are in the front row to learn more about your retirement income options.
