  • Why would you want to keep your money inside the super/pension environment rather than have a lump sum?
  • Who can a reversionary pension go to?
  • What happens with children, once they grow-up, does it need to be cashed-out?
  • What are the benefits of making a reversionary pension?
  • As a recipient of a reversionary pension, why do I need to be aware of the transfer balance cap?
  • Government defined benefit scheme pensions run under a different set of rules. Above all seek advice if you need clarity.
  • What is the impact of this on Centrelink?
  • How can you make the most of a reversionary pension – what strategies might you consider?
  • An offer for a free appointment to talk about your own financial planning goals and objectives. Everyone has different goals and personal financial planning advice can help you achieve them more effectively.
  • And finally an invitation to participate in our Budget Program starting in October.
