Managing my portfolio and super strategies
If you've ever made a will, the treatment you gave the family home was probably a top priority. But what about your super? It is equally as important.
To access your super you need to either have reached a certain age - at or near retirement - or met other strict employment-based conditions.
Minimise your tax payments and make more of what you have by making extra contributions to your super.
Employers are legally obliged to contribute to our super, but we can also make additional payments to our funds ourselves.
Some of us can get free money, up to $500, from the government by contributing extra to our super. It’s called the co-contribution scheme.
If you get the feeling you should be doing something about your super but don't know where to start - avoiding these 3 things is a good first step.
When you have a life-changing event take a moment to think about your super – it's important.
Estimates like '$1 million' are thrown around as to what you might need in retirement. While they can be a good guide, everyone's reality is different.
