Thank you really much everybody for joining us. Allow'' s enter into the discussion this evening. we are speaking about retirement so I I I think the very first came off the rank and and among the very first decisions you'' ll requirement to make is what your retired life goals are.Um currently noticeable what you wish to carry out in retirement is an extremely independent choice but it will certainly have a substantial influence on exactly how much money you may require to support that way of life in retirement. We'' ve obtained a couple of examples on the screen there in front of you. Um travel isn'' t necessarily something that ' s been available to us over the last pair of years as our WA buddies would be conscious that has also included internally however with things settling I think expect in terms of COVID traveling end up being available. Where you desire to go will determine how much that prices, exactly how long you want to go for, those sorts of points. Um several of you when you do retire might wish to spend a great deal even more time with family. Uh an instance that I often tend to use is is my mommy. My mother is a little nation woman. Expanded up within a very tiny span. Um relocated simply down the road as well as she'' s enjoyed in our little hometown down in Findlay ever since.Her concept comfortable retired life is to spend a long time in the garden, dealing with the grandchildren once in a while Um as well as doing short trips around the city doing some outdoor camping and those sorts of points. As you can visualize that ' s not something that'costs a a good deal of money. Um whereas if you want to do good cruises or travel overseas they'' re most definitely points that are going to set you back a bit a lot more. Not sure the number of people have an interest in doing cruises presently Sonia however the Ruby Pri anyhow. Not any kind of time earlier. We wouldn'' t have believed. Um but you know retirement objectives. What what kind of things will you go over with them as a coordinator? I assume that anything I do is significantly goal driven and also you'' re right. They ' re going mosting likely to have different costs

linked with them.And we'' re in the organization of helping people meet their goals in the very best possible method. Uh because if you have a a retired life pot that you'' re starting with. Uh exactly how do you make that last? You know you understand you have variety of years as well as and so the number of of your objectives are possible? Uh are they all feasible individuals obtain the convenience from recognizing that'' s an indeed or if it looks like things need tweaking you much better off to understand earlier instead of later. Yeah and also I believe life span has a little bit to do keeping that too. I'' m I ' m not anticipating to live to 1hundred. Um but I think that most definitely consider as well. I'' m not suggesting I won'' t yet I ' m I ' m leaning on the side of possibly not. I need the excellent Pass away Young Costs. Some individuals state they'' re busier in retired life than they ever were as well as they'' re working lives.

Yeah. So you know that that'' s vital for us to know. My goal is not to be as busy as I am currently in retired life Sonia. Um I must additionally state as well as we progress with this there'' s there is a whole lot of people participating in but we would love to make certain that you obtain the details that you desire out of tonight'' s session. So if you'' ve got a concern please see to it that you post it via the the questions as well as solutions tab on the on the leading well mine'' s on the left hand side the Q&A ah speech bubble. If we obtain the possibility and it'' s ideal we'' ll answer those throughout the discussion or at the end. If we obtain way too many concerns as well as we can'' t answer'those I ' ll simply allow you know that ah among our regional supervisors will be in touch throughout the week and we'' ll ensure that you obtain a solution to that question.So please send those via as we go on. I presume whether or not you have sufficient cash to live on in when you are in retirement. Once more depends upon what you intend to do. Ah and also exactly how much you contend your disposal. To provide you a bit of an instance of what that could look like from an earnings point of view ah over a year. We'' ve obtained ah the full age pension plan right here on this specific slide where you'' ve got the singles as well as the pairs at at twenty5 6 thousand. Twenty-five thousand six hundred and seventyseven. Apologies and simply over 3-eight, 000 for a couple.To provide you

a context about ah what that kind of ways. Uh the Association of Superannuation Finances Australia have done a whole lot of research study around what a comfortable or modest way of life resembles in retirement. And we'' ve included those figures for you too simply to offer you a little bit of a suggestion as to what kind of a an income you may need as a as a single or a couple in retired life to sustain those sorts of way of life. Um Sonia I know from a monetary preparation viewpoint we don'' t always think in revenue on a year by year basis in retirement. We go fine what does that appearance like from a balanced viewpoint? Can you drop any type of on what that looks like in these instances? Yes definitely. Uh so if you would like a comfortable lifestyle as well as assuming you retire at 65 and thinking price of return of 5% then a bachelor might retire on $545, 000 and have a comfortable way of life as well as a pair six hundred and forty thousand. Uh so there is a a little bit of a misconception I guess that you need one million bucks to retire comfortably.Uh that ' s not the

instance yet'offered you choose your financial investments wisely and also and get the technique. It ' s likewise presuming you ' ve paid off your mortgage Uh so there ' s no home loan payments and also there ' s no rental fee included in these expenses. It may be the instance that you require a little bit even more cash if you ' re in those scenarios. My my retirement does include winning lotto Sonia. So the million dollars need to be a buy option. Exceptional Costs. Looking ahead to becoming aware of that. You may not. I might just vanish on him for the sunset. Um now I mentioned Asper the Association of Superannuation Finances Australia and also the research study that they ' ve done into different kinds of way of livings in retired life. There ' s an actually great document that ' s offered on their internet site. Uh and if you look down the really lower of that if you seek out in Google the Organization of Superannuation funds Australia Retired life Standard. Um you ' ll have the ability to see a copy of this record as well as I think some of those details are in a handout that ' s readily available after this certain webinar yet if you have an appearance on the screen there you ' ve obtained a comfy way of life and also retired life on the left hand side and'what I like regarding this paper is it actually offers you some functional examples about what you may anticipate in retired life under those different lifestyles.And I ' ll emphasis on the comfortable one because I ' m visualizing that ' s where we ' re in all like

to be clearly. Um and I ' m mosting likely to go right to the lower one which is exclusive health insurance policy. I guess they ' re comfortable way of life permits you to have a good degree of private health and wellness cover. And as we age we recognize that our health and wellness slowly deteriorates as well as ah and also things can come to be a little bit extra pricey in because specific realm.But you understand other points on there Sonia like points like your your holidays. What types of vacations as well as exactly how usually you can go on a holiday. Those are additionally consider in this specific paper. Definitely. Consuming out repair services on your vehicle as well as home. Uh I do people once in a while that can handle to conserve a little bit of money if they ' re on the age pension.But it actually depends where they ' re living and you know how practical they are. however simply having a little bit extra actually for the moderate way of life can make a large distinction. And you put on ' t in fact need that much in super to have a small way of life. Um the when it comes to quantities of 70, 000 for a single person as well as a couple. Yeah. Uh so it ' s extremely simple to attain something a little greater than the age pension.Um simply a concern in there currently. Uh around the 545000. Whether that is an equilibrium at retirement to support a pair or a a single. As well as it ' s a single isn ' t it? And indeed and six 40, 40 thousand for a couple. shared expenses basically is is is the crucial factor for that being ah not a big discrepancy in between a couple as well as'a single.So certainly anything above that is a bit of a bonus. Yes. Because sense. Yet we really do modelling. We can fine song ah projections to take a look at your ah tolerance

for threat as well as ah customise ah the type of objectives that you have and reveal you the length of time your cash will last. fantastic one. And spending plans. Budgets Sonia. I know that ' s a preferred topic. Oh. For everyone. Sorry to bring it up. No. No it ' s essential because it does terrify a great deal of people away from the advice process. As well as I just wish to assure people that you wear ' t in fact have to have a spending plan. It it'' s an extremely valuable tool. I ' ve undergone the process myself. I know it can be uncomfortable but if you don'' t have one there ' s various other ways to skin a'feline. We wear ' t really drove down into the budget unless something looks a little bit askance We can really then state okay what do you require to live on and also function in reverse if that ' s your preference or we could look at what you ' re earning as well as does that accumulate or does does your cash balance go down? Um So it'' s it ' s quite possible not to have to go via the pain of a budget.Um we can begin with what individuals need as a modest lifestyle or a comfy way of life and job from that. certainly there ' s risks of of simply making use of presumptions and not utilizing your actual expense. I ' ve obtained a brilliant spending plan Sonia. My problem takes place when I really need to reveal the discipline to to to overcome that. Luckily I ' ve I ' ve obtained somebody that ' s taken control of that for me. She likes me. Nick. She likes me. Okay so I guess the various other thing that I that I encounter every now and then Sonia and also this'is something that'I understand you can assist people with. Superannuation is undoubtedly mosting likely to form up the largest component of of lots of people ' s retirement planning. yet I believe we tend to fail to remember that there are other elements that we can include right into that jigsaw challenge that can develop the more comprehensive picture. Which ' s something that I know you and as well as your coworkers within the group can additionally aid individuals with. For sure. Not every ah has had the possibility to obtain cash into incredibly or perhaps wish to. Ah due to the fact that of the preservation policies. They might have collected assets outside.

Ah every one of these ah properties can be a source of funds for retirement. We ' ll come back to the family members residence and how to release equity from that. Yet the primary point is that ah if you play with one of these ah you may influence the various other. Or there might be a a favored method to make use of these in retired life to reduce tax obligation ensure you get the very best end result for state preparation functions. I believe the all natural view makes feeling to to optimise your circumstance. Oh do you wish to touch base on the household house or would you such as to deal with that later Sonia? We ' re going to return to that. Okay outstanding. I recognize we ' d touch base on it a bit later. Now this is possibly fairly topical. Uh the the advantages of financial savings within superannuation.We ' ve clearly got the the big budget statement tomorrow night and afterwards it ' ll be very interesting to see what ' s appears of that a great deal of whispers and rumours and also as well as information short articles walking around I think predicting what ' s going to come out in the budget.

Um'but expenses of living pressures are are probably first. However in regards to superannuation I presume among one of the most substantial advantages is as opposed to pay your low tax obligation price within superannuation. Whatever that you put into superannuation concessionally is tax at only 15 percent.Um so there ' s real advantages there. Um if you in a placement where you can establish a transition to retired life. It ' s not as reliable as it was when it was first introduced since now any type of investment incomes within your shift to retirement pension are exhausted at 15% whereas previously they weren ' t.

Um however certainly once you ' re at a setting ah over 65 or over your preservation age as well as completely relinquished the labor force. Ah anything within an account based pension plan is free of tax. Lovely. Doesn ' t improve than that. No. It doesn ' t. Although they could bring that conservation aged onward would certainly be extremely extremely great. Which ' s an inquiry'that we ' ve actually had sent out through. just increase it and also I ' ll solution that for for our member. Your conservation age is a little bit dependent upon when you were born. We ' re going to attend to that and also I ' ll show you a slide in a little bit.Um that ' ll dictate where and when you can access your'retirement. There are different ways that you can do that. Um it wasn ' t necessarily a certainty yet in 2014 I assume it was the the government revealed that they were going to maintain the Superannuation Assurance Price increase that'had been postponed. Um so we saw the initial increase on one July in 2014. We ' ve obtained an additional one due on one July 2022 where the superannuation warranty is mosting likely to go from 10%to 10 as well as a half percent and also year on year it will proceed up until it gets out to 12 percent. You can see it ' s people beginning in the workplace in the below and also now for the initial time are going to be seriously advantaged in terms of their retirement planning.Um however it ' s additionally going to assist those of us that are that have been in the system for a while and also maybe looking at retiring in the near or in the midterm future. Um simply to place that little bit added in there and as well as benefit from that. Um but it'' s good regulation I believe Sonia. For certain. Yeah it ' s applied savings. Um accumulating your retirement balance is a great point. Uh we require to be careful. There ' s a concessional cap. If the extremely assurance goes up and also your wage ' s compromising you need to be careful your income sacrifice doesn ' t take you over the cap. You ' ll requirement to adjust for the rise in the extremely guarantee.That ' s the challenges of of'superannuation isn ' t it? It ' s a really'complex atmosphere. There ' s points you do need to be conscious of and also we are going to cover off on those caps in a couple of slides time. Close to your why would someone take into consideration income sacrificing? We understand that every little thing that comes right into superannuation is exhausted at 15 percent. However just how can you make salary sacrifice help you? Uh there are tax obligation advantages for people making greater than 18 thousand dollars.Um we recognize the the payment price'is 15 %. The financial savings are tiny until you get to 45, 000 and then they start to actually add up. Uh as well as obviously if you ' re on a higher earnings, one hundred 20 to 1 and also 80, or 1880 plus, that difference is over 20%. Even 19 and a half percent is starting to truly place cash in your retired life cost savings rather than the tax workplaces funds. It ' s an engaging factor to salary sacrifice and swap revenue tired at your limited tax obligation price over to the payment tax obligation price.

Obviously, a drawback is conservation for those young however even a percentage of wage sacrifice can worsen over the years as well as make a remarkable difference. For those closer to retirement, there ' s a far more a factor to to do the wage sacrifice. and those caps enter play undoubtedly too and also possibly as we ' ll touch base a little bit later. Change to retired life where you can take benefit of that if you aren ' t in a position to do so now. Yes. Um we ' ve got an instance for you of a an income sacrifice instance and to give you a bit of an idea as to what this is.This is based upon an individual whose salary is $ a 00 000 dollars each year. We ' ve damaged that down right into 4 for every night because I presume normally talking Sonia we tend to comprehend what our pay is on a biweekly basis but not necessarily the longer term implications to us. So if we take a look at this instance what highlights do you assume ideal promote income sacrifice as a method? This slide actually shows that it doesn ' t cost as high as you would certainly think. That that the net pay is not as affected as you would certainly believe by income sacrificing even 5 %or $192. It ' s only mosting likely to make$ 127 difference to the take-home pay. Due to the fact that you ' re getting the instant tax conserving. Obviously, if you, if you ' re salary compromising in the direction of completion of the year and you ' re having had time to take advantage of the approach, there are other means to obtain cash right into supers such as the concessional contribution as a little bit of a catch up or if you have revenue that ' s occasional due to the fact that you ' re delicately employed or you have your very own service, making a personal deductible payment can be a good means to top up your incredibly as well either in with in conjunction with the salary sacrifice or on its own.Yeah, excellent. I like I like the figures at the base as well as as well as those are certainly their broad view figures. However if you take a look at it over ten years if your salary ' s sacrificing 5'%of your earnings 100 K you ' re going to save$17, 000 on earnings tax. over that ten years period. And I think we can all value that the government requires much less of our cash to misspend than they presently obtain and and which just maintains things fascinating. Yeah. Instead of to pay.It ' s a great option to to consider the method forward longer term. Now going to review I guess the payment alternatives that you do have and also these are opening up in current times for a great deal more individuals which will certainly touch base on. But to touch base originally we ' re going to talk concerning concessional payments. Now concessional payments are anything that your employer contributes. Whether that be their superannuation guarantee or a voluntary amount that they add on top of that which takes place every so often. Um anything that your wage given up is considered a concessional contribution as well as by concessional it indicates that you ' re paying that concessional tax price of 15'percent.So the wage for sacrifice brings in that. The other one that Sonia mentioned on the previous slide is an individual insurance deductible contribution as well as that ' s where you make a contribution throughout an economic year or in the direction of completion of a financial year. And on component or all of that payment you can declare that as a tax reduction. . There are caps on exactly how much you can obtain right into superannuation. Presently for the present economic year, the rate rent out up this year. It ' s currently 27 and also a half thousand. You probably know that it was 25, 000 before that.

I'' m not suggesting I won'' t however I ' m I ' m leaning on the side of most likely not. It ' s likewise assuming you ' ve paid off your home loan Uh so there ' s no home loan repayments and also there ' s no lease consisted of in these costs. We wear ' t in fact drove down right into the budget plan unless something looks a bit askew We can really then state alright what do you require to live on as well as function in reverse if that ' s your preference or we could look at what you ' re earning as well as does that gather or does does your money balance go down? The good news is I ' ve I ' ve obtained a person that ' s taken control of that for me. Of training course, if you, if you ' re salary giving up in the direction of the end of the year as well as you ' re having had time to make the most of the strategy, there are other means to obtain money right into supers such as the concessional payment as a bit of a catch up or if you have income that ' s occasional due to the fact that you ' re casually used or you have your own service, making an individual deductible contribution can be an excellent way to cover up your extremely as well either in with in combination with the salary sacrifice or on its own.Yeah, excellent.Um there are likewise some other ways that you can contribute or boost your superannuation.Um I think you ' ve currently discussed that their spousal splitting where you can move money that ' s contributed concessionally into your account right into your partner ' s account. Uh that might just be resting in the financial institution under old policies yet now we ' re able to utilize the downsizer regulations offered you ' ve had the building for 10 years or even more as well as it is partially or completely excluded from resources gains tax which it will be if you ' ve lived in it as well as for the year up to 30th of June 2022 you require to be over 65 to make a downsizer payment. It ' s it ' s beneficial considering your insurance needs and also and just how those can be fulfilled most efficiently yet potentially if if there ' s no need for an insurance policy concern on on on your part there may be benefits in consolidating.Um so that ' s the other option.

Um there are also some other methods that you can contribute or increase your superannuation.Um I assume you ' ve already stated that their spousal splitting where you can relocate cash that ' s added concessionally into your account right into your spouse ' s account. Uh that can just be resting in the bank under old guidelines but now we ' re able to use the downsizer policies offered you ' ve possessed the residential or commercial property for 10 years or more and also it is partially or completely exempt from funding gains tax which it will certainly be if you ' ve lived in it and also for the year up to 30th of June 2022 you require to be over 65 to make a downsizer contribution. It ' s it ' s worthwhile considering your insurance policy needs as well as as well as how those can be satisfied most efficiently yet possibly if if there ' s no demand for an insurance policy problem on on on your behalf there might be benefits in consolidating.Um so that ' s the various other choice. Um so you kind of it it ' s it ' s much better it ' s much better than what individuals assume it is.You might take that out and go down as well as place it back on black at the gambling establishment if you wanted to. Um you know one of the silver cellular linings to COVID is that individuals that wear ' t want or require this money to come out can can still obtain the tax obligation totally free incomes but attract less as well as maybe live on their cash while there ' s periods of volatility a transition to retired life pension is still a helpful product and also where we ' re using it is is for individuals that desire an income sacrifice a bit much more.Um you can take the entire lot and also put it on the black chip costs however just remember it'' s harder to get money back into incredibly as a result of the caps so take treatment with what you extract but yes it'' s your cash if'it ' s unrestricted. Uh simply again I desire to guarantee you that that is not reliable economic advice. I have actually never advised that. Certainly, you would certainly place it on red, Sonia. Um currently, there'' s a number of ah pension plan choices at our fund and also Sonia I ' ll obtain you to run with these due to the fact that I know that you recognize them intimately and as well as the various options that are available. If we start off with our retired choice designated pension.And some of the functions that are included in that. Ah as the name recommends retire selection gives you selection with your financial investments. Um so it is a revenue stream like our other product. This time you you can select which financial investment options from this variety. Uh so varied choices left wing. Single properties on the right. Single possessions can be valuable to develop your own profile. But if you want a diversified mix after that we can find an alternative that fits any type of degree of danger cravings. There ' s the socially responsible option too. Uh they ' re not in any kind of order of risk'in the way that they ' re provided there.Um Shares its'varied.

Uh it ' s because listing since it ' s a mix of worldwide as well as Australian shares. Uh but all the various other choices have a mixture of defence of as well as development assets. Thank you. Um just keep those inquiries coming by the method as I as I move via to this this following slide. If you have anything whether it have to do with the products or anything that we'' ve claimed through at the presentation so far Um please just send those inquiries via. We'' ll make certain that you obtain a solution as well as get the most out of the the occasion this evening. however in the meantime our other pension plan items are an award-winning product I may include is our Retire Smart Product Sonia.Absolutely Expense this product has a distinction in that rather of choosing the financial investments there ' s 2 choices in there'as well as it ' s called well they ' re made use of for a pail method Uh you have about two years worth of pension settlements resting in a cash choice and the rest remains in a growth alternative that does the the heavy lifting as well as if there are incomes they can be made use of to cover up the cash bucket when it runs reduced if the cash pail gets as well full you can spend the money back right into the growth bucket.Uh so this is developed to minimize the impact of volatility on your pension draw downs. And it really does fit some individuals to have this in place. Uh however it won ' t match everybody due to the fact that of the growth nature of the'growth pail. Uh taking a bit much more threats than some people fit with. So we can replicate this technique in the retired option product by hand. We can have your two years worth of pension plan repayments or whatever searches, the technique and and do that to fit any kind of degree of risk resistance. Uh we we do have it on the want list to make this item readily available for all degrees of danger tolerance since it it is prominent for those that utilize it. And as you stated Bill, honor winning. Yeah, probably not always mosting likely to satisfy that wishlist offered as everybody ' s possibly conscious we ' re checking out combining with Uni Super and there ' s a great deal of that up'airborne presently but if this approach does passion you it it ' s absolutely something that I would certainly advise somebody inquire on to make certain that you completely'recognize I guess the threats connected with the product which you ' re comfortable with that and also if you do comprehend exactly how little works that ' s definitely going to'assist you make a more educated decision For sure.Um so I think that'covers off the superannuation and also the pension plan item that are available with the fund and we ' ve discussed the contributions. Um various other component of that jigsaw puzzle that we described at the beginning the Sonia which all natural strategy to our old age pension does form a a piece of those of those problems so just desire to start with laying out how does somebody satisfy the problems for age pension and as well as what kind of cash is readily available with that Uh sure Bill. Uh many thanks. You require to reach age pension plan age. Um in the future it will be sixty-seven for everybody but currently there ' s still some more youthful age fulfilling that requirement.Um you after that need to have actually been a local for one decade unless you from a nation with'a contract such as New Zealand, yet ten years as a guideline.

Uh after that if you tick those boxes, we take a look at the property test and also revenue test simultaneously and whichever one provides the lowest outcome is the one that Centrelink will utilize for your age pension settlement Uh there ' s a reason they call it means testing because it ' s mean.Uh and also there are limits that have shown up at the lower end, boil down at the top end. Uh so, it'' s you recognize, I less individuals are eligible at the leading end however if you if

you are eligible it ' s way to obtain your tax obligation several of your tax obligation money back and make your very own retirement savings last much longer. constantly an excellent option. Um so this is the age that you can access the age pension in as it currently stands and also Sonia ' s kind of highlighted that currently it ' s in it ' s procedure of leaving to a 67 however anybody signed up with anyone birthed between an in the past sorry the thirty-1st of December 19 fifty-six. Uh it ' s presently 66 years and also 6 months of age. Uh yet after that the rest of us are going to be experiencing until sixty-seven. We won ' t requirement this slide in 18 months. That ' s a I won ' t require it after my lottery win Sonia.Um so exactly how do they exactly how do they gauge just how much someone is qualified for under the age pension plan Sonia. I understand there are a couple of examinations and we ' re mosting likely to begin with the properties examinations that I ' ve hopped on the display for everyone presently. Uh simply know this is for a solitary person presently. Uh single person who ' s a homeowner will have various thresholds to a non-home owner. You can see the lower limit in the mauve colour. Uh if you ' re assets are under that reduced limit after that you'will obtain the complete age pension. This is provided you ' re under the asset examination not earnings test and after that the top threshold'is the cut-off point for getting no pension in any way and also then if you ' re in the blue section between you'will certainly obtain a partial pension plan Um the the non-homeowner obviously is able to have even more properties since it ' s shouldn ' t not have lease as well as more costs. Yet the crucial thing is that you know recognizing these thresholds because Centrelink ' s not going to come knocking at your door when you ' re eligible. As well as even if you ' re not eligible at the beginning after a period of self financing in retired life your possessions may be consumed to the factor you ' re you'' re then eligible. So at any kind of factor we can assist assess individuals ' s eligibility to save them the headache of loading in documents unnecessarily or to provide comfort that indeed that ' s an advantage to do. and I ' m just going to bring up the couple ' s screen for you Sonia to to experience some of those thresholds'. One of the inquiries that ' s actually been asked as well as it might be worthwhile covering some of the other things that are developed in within the possession test yet is superannuation thought about an asset under the age pension plan test? As a private, if your age pension plan age, after that your superannuation will certainly be an obtainable property. Uh whether it ' s a build-up phase or pension plan stage. Uh there is something to keep in mind. If you ' re a participant of a couple and also right here are the pair ' s limits, if you have an age differential as well as the older spouse is age pension age however the more youthful partner is not.Uh anything a buildup stage for the more youthful partner won ' t be an easily accessible asset. So it ' s really hidden from the property examination.

Uh there are strategies then, naturally, moving superannuation or'properties from the older spouse to the more youthful spouse ' s name to effectively boost eligibility for age pension for the older spouse but we do take care with that because with any kind of positive there ' s likewise a danger or an expense. So ah we ' re constantly making certain that the advantages exceed the expenses. Yet the strategies there ah for those that that want to get not only the aged pension plan but you get the ah giving in card with it. Which people ah love. I trust my spouse as well Sonia. What ' s yours is hers anyhow? That ' s what I ' ve been told. Um the other component, okay, is the income examination. Now, that is the flip side.So, how does this get determined as well as how do both interact, Sonia? Excellent'inquiry'. Uh whilst the majority of people will certainly drop under the property test in retirement, the income test

does come right into play for those those who have federal government pension plans or investment homes, this might be the riding test that identifies their age pension plan. And also the reason for that is that if you ' re not functioning then your income may only be regarded income on your financial investments.And the regarding rates have come down. Thanks to Covid. The the greatest steaming price ' s just 2. 25%. Uh so lots of people won ' t have this income examination use. Ah you can see the thresholds there

. Ah an additional crucial thing to note is if you ' re doing some work the first 300 dollars won ' t matter Ah towards the earnings test ah many thanks to the work incentive. And also there ' s some great policies around the work incentive if you ah wear ' t use all of it in one fortnight. You can carry it onward as much as $6, 000. Ah so you can bank some up there. Ah there ' s also ah once again advantages to having money in accumulation stage for a younger spouse If you ' re a member of a pair. Uh simply go through some various other points that individuals might not realize are excluded possessions as well as aren ' t regarded to make earnings. Among them is a funeral bond as much as the centrelink limit of 13 and also a half thousand bucks. And there are annuities style of items that are concessionally treated for Centrelink under both tests.Uh so they'can be made use of for people remaining on that top limit to get them under and obtain that little bit of age pension plan as well as as well as the concession card. Really one more truly excellent concern in concerns to the age pension plan Sonia. Um a a gentleman started an alloted pension in 2thousand and10. Is that balance included under the assets examinations? So we ' re extremely mindful to have a look at people ' s pension plans the where they ' ve been in presence for some time. Um they can be among the old grandfathered pension plans. You would claim in the major many individuals ' s pensions will be counted in the direction of the possession examination as well as will be regarded to make income.Some of the old grandfathered pensions have a various kind of revenue and a various type of screening. So as an example an account established prior to 2015 where you were already getting the age pension. Correct. Is that the one? Yes.

So yet potentially I suppose it it is included. It might be included in different ways to pensions established up much more current times but if that was your concern could I just advise you possibly reach out and also get some more specific information and possibly some economic suggestions if that ' s going to help you do that. There are some some individuals that can take advantage of quiting as well as rebooting an older style of pension. They might be eligible for more Centrelink. But that ' s not always the instance. We do take excellent treatment with that. Yeah we ' ve just obtained ta be a little cautious I suppose.Not to guide any person down the wrong path if we most likely to the pale hearted. That scenario. That ' s how that ' s how Sonia makes ah makes the the cost for any kind of guidance. So allow ' s think that you ' ve experienced both of those tests obviously and also they ' ve determined one way or the other which one you '

re mosting likely to be determined on your Sonya. Um this slide dictates okay exactly how much you could be qualified'to as well as I know there ' s three ah little circles on the screen there before you'. Could you explain to us what they imply and also exactly how that kind of Works. Probably the last one particularly. Yes. Uh these are the yearly repayments. Um if you ' re solitary after that an easy means to function out what that is for fortnight is just to to round it to twenty-six. It ' s virtually a 000 dollarsper fortnight. Um after that for a pair thirty-eight thousand it ' s mosting likely to I think indeed it it ' s going to provide you a considerable lift to'your revenue. yet if you ' re a component as a participant of a pair you go back to the single price.

Um'some people will ask if this belonging as a result of illness is where you ' re fed up with each various other'. Uh no that does not count. You have to there are different policies around that splitting up to obtain the complete age for the single price of pension. but the the center bubble really shows after that what one participant of a pair will get which ' s important if the older individual in the pair age pension plan age but the more youthful one isn ' t. It ' s specifically half the pair rates. Not too bad. I indicate as you can see over time as soon as you ' ve reached retirement age as well as you require to money yourself for particularly 20 years.This this can create a significant part of of that technique. Exactly. Um so alright allow ' s assume that you ' ve you ' ve undergone the age pension plan situation you'' ve obtained that. Um whether or not you receive the age pension or not you might

still be eligible for the Republic Seniors Wellness Card Sonia. Uh this is for people that put on'' t have the'age pension concession card. It ' ll be individuals that for one'reason or an additional are above the thresholds yet this is an examination for this card it ' s an income examination only and you can see that those income tests are higher than what is applied to the age pension.Uh as a harsh regulation of thumb if you ' ve obtained under 3 million in economic properties after that you can be likely to or be pretty sure you ' ll be eligible for this Republic Seniors Health And Wellness Card. Offered you satisfy the residency guidelines and you are aged pension plan age already. Uh so the earnings examination includes deemed revenue on your financial investments, any kind of work revenue, rental building, returns, it doesn ' t consist of the real money you ' re drawing out of your incredibly. Um so that ' s essential to note. It ' s simply a regarded income on your balance.Cheaper medicine is a win for mine. Oh most definitely. Uh screw invoicing at the medical professional if your medical professional supplies it. Uh lower rates and also bills. It will certainly depend on the council or the energy'service provider and also who you'obtain on the phone often. Um not not everybody on the with the Commonwealth Seniors Wellness Card will certainly get the price cuts on their utilities. Many are telling me they do. And and that can make countless dollars different. Yeah. state preparation. Estate preparation. I presume this is something that is also misinterpreted and also I ' m just trying to relocate via these slides a little bit quicker because I comprehend we ' re going a little over it. I apologise for that.Um estate preparation though is very extremely crucial. It ' s something that we touch base on several lot of times however a great deal of people don ' t recognize Sonia that superannuation is not instantly moved to the will. It ' s really treated under different legislation. That ' s right. you can direct your incredibly to be part of your estate but unless you do that,

it ' s actually mosting likely to be sent to your chosen recipients or if you wear ' t have actually nominated beneficiaries, then it ' s a fairly complex procedure. Um so, I I presume having the documents in position make certain it'satisfies your wishes is extremely important to ensure the right possessions end up with the right individuals at the correct time and also you can reduce tax and also those kinds of ah so we'do ah assist individuals take a look at ah the problems with leaving cash straight or leaving it through the estate.But ah I believe if you if you wish to consider firstly who can you nominate? Ah that ' s something ah that ah we can assist with as well as also ah what type of election. Bill do you get people ask concerns around those binding nominations? Yeah definitely. I assume when people are are choosing a beneficiary, there are basically three various choices available to them and I begin at the at the reduced end of the scale. There ' s what ' s called a non-binding recipient election which is essentially you ' re offering the superannuation fund with support as to where you would certainly like the cashes to head to yet it isn ' t bonding on the fund. The trustees still have to make a decision on where the best area is for that cash to go to based on your situations at the time of your death.So while you might give that support there ' s a possibility that your wishes aren ' t fulfilled. Um at'at the time of your death. If you do want to make sure that your dreams are met after that you ' ve obtained 2 options. It can superannuation account and also pension. You can do a binding nomination. Which is just that it ' s attacking on the fund. Yet there are minimal people that you are able to leave it to. As long as you leave it to somebody that ' s qualified under the regulation then you can denomination as well as the fund should pay as per your wishes.Ah and also the various other choice if you ' ve got a pension account is a reversionary beneficiary which is likewise binding on the fund. But once more there ' s very limited options in regards to that you can leave those monies to. Yet those are your options. And also if you ' re doing a buyer election as well as you wish to leave it to your estate that ' s the possibility which ' s see to it that that dream will certainly be met at the time of your passing away

. Right and also the good information is that if your ah beneficiaries aren ' t altering and also you ' re coming near the 3 year expiry date we currently have a a kind that'making the process simple simply to refresh that nomination. Doesn ' t demand seeing. Uh simply just the account holder can authorize that form.Correct As well as in interesting times just recently it ' s been allowed so if you ' ve your Biden nomination does need to be renewed every 3 years and also every 3 years you no more have to do the the complete process. We ' re currently doing a shortened'process where if you'' re simply validating your existing nomination then you ' ll absolutely be able to simply that record on your own as well as send that back. As well as we do undoubtedly ah let you understand when those those due dates are

turning up. Just be aware of that. I ' m just going to discuss that. I will just briefly claim in this instance that and Sonia as well as our other planners are able to aid anyone that has a demand to do for recommendations in concerns to aged care whether that be for yourselves or your your elderly parents.Um it ' s very really intricate environment and also it ' s beneficial seeking professional help.

Now, I don ' t like the time the term restricted suggestions. Sonia, they, it ' s basically limited those products. That ' s why it ' s called that. Um yet are usually a phone discussion. There are no added expenses to you since they create a component of your membership cost'. So, there ' s something that you can capitalize on at any time you'want. Um as a member of the fund.

As well as just to allow people recognize there ' s on the house for that conference. Uh'it ' s merely a number of hrs of'your time and if we can ' t aid you we ' ll be sincere or'if we assume you understand come back in a year or 2 would certainly be better. We'' ll be honest. Um we need to make sure that advice is greater than likely to place you in a far better position.So it is a beneficial process though simply to identify those areas and disregard the sound. There ' s so several guidelines. There'' s most definitely a great deal of policies. There are just a couple of inquiries that I think are are basic sufficient to simply address promptly and also they may benefit the broader group. Um the the very first one I'' ll I ' ll message to you Sonia. Should someone be fully retired to transform over to an assigned pension or could they retire and afterwards return to work and be reemployed down the track. Great question. Uh so you need to meet a problem of release and that needs to be sustained with a statutory affirmation which is either that you'' ve ceased a rewarding work plan when you'' re over 60 or or that you then in time wear ' t plan to ever before work 10 hours or more once more per week.Uh so when that cash is unrestricted and got you can have an alloted pension. Uh if you go back to work though and since you ' ve changed your mind. Um that ' s that ' s an opportunity.'Keep in mind that legal document has to has actually to be signed and also you have to be able to you understand put your hand on your heart and also claim yes that'' s the reality at that time. As a Justice of the Tranquility as a it'' s a really complicated process yet it for extensive purposes yes you can. Um the other concern is simply around in relation to the procedure. Do a monetary preparation meeting online or does it have to be face to face or over the phone or what are the choices Sonia? Phone, Zoom or one-on-one? I I do some respectable drawings if if you are available in one-on-one however Zoom'' s really practical and I can share a screen with individuals and reveal you some advantages also.

Whatever matches individuals in these Covid times and also with floods and also what have you. Yeah. I do circumnavigate the state. I go down to Lismore up to Cairns and we have other advisers in various other states. Uh with the very same alternatives. I enjoy in person too. I have to confess I'' m a little bit old-fashioned in that regards however I simulate having the ability to check out individuals'' s body movement and as well as those type of things and also I believe it it does offer an excellent possibility to just I guess scale somebody'' s comprehending as well as passion as well as as well as and dig a bit further but all options are basically on the table. Um one last question for you Sonia and I do apologise. There are some questions that I'' m not mosting likely to have the ability to address this evening. Please I I I assure you someone will certainly be in touch with you by the end of this week to make certain that you obtain solutions to those inquiries.

They are great inquiries. we just put on'' t have time due to the fact that we ' ve gone a little bit over. One last one I I think is is possibly an extremely good inquiry. If you recognize what age you'' re thinking about retiring Sonia. Um when when would you recommend a person I guess examine their retirement. For how long prior to that time as well as is there an exists a sort of a magic number or? There'' s no I suggest the faster the far better is possibly the response. It'' s never ever also late to make adjustments yet also it'' s never ever too early. I I do see people you know youngsters come in.

I'' m mentioning about me. Uh get to people in their 20s that know that they desire to retire at 65 and also desire to make that take place. I believe there'' s an extremely crucial approach from 60 onwards since of program you cash out of very tax obligation free so we can actually increase the method after that. Yeah definitely. I believe also the other thing that individuals aren'' t always knowledgeable about is preparing for retirement. Um does have the advantages of possible tax savings too which are something that can take place right away for you. Specifically right. Yeah. Well there'' s investments outside super. We can do points keeping that as well as as well as construct a portfolio that behind might end up in incredibly or be maintained outdoors. Yep. Perfect. I do apologise everybody. That'' s constantly'we ' ve got ah this night. I understand there ' s a number of other inquiries that have actually even popped via simply as we'' ve experienced there.Um thank you for asking those concerns.

Uh so you need to meet a condition of launch as well as that has to be sustained with a statutory declaration which is either that you'' ve ceased a rewarding employment plan when you'' re over 60 or or that you at that factor in time wear ' t plan to ever function 10 hours or more again per week.Uh so as soon as that money is unlimited and also obtained you can have an allocated pension plan.
