ESSSuper Retirement Seminar - February 18
If you’re a member of the New Scheme, Revised Scheme (and 54/11) or SERB Scheme, and have started to think about retirement and what it could look like, then come along to the ESSSuper Planning for Your Retirement seminar.
The seminar will be presented by ESSSuper.
Join the thousands of teaching professionals that ESSSuper has helped support through the years with their superannuation and retirement planning. No one knows your New Scheme, Revised Scheme or SERB Scheme like the organisation that runs them, so to be sure you’re making the best decisions when it comes to your superannuation, come along and hear from the experts.
We will cover topics relevant to members planning for or entering retirement such as:
- What makes a good retirement – the ASFA Retirement Standard.
- Understanding your fund – New Scheme, Revised Scheme (and 54/11) and SERB.
- Maximising your super.
- Salary Sacrifice and tax efficiencies.
- When you can access your super.
- Options to increase your retirement savings.
- Transition to Retirement (TTR) and when you can do it.
- Making the most of any Centrelink benefits.
- Financial advice options – some free and some at a cost.
You will have time after the seminar to ask any questions or book a one-on-one appointment.
Date: Saturday, February 18
Time: 10.00am - 11.30am
Venue: AEU Victoria, 126 Trenerry Crescent, Abbotsford
This is one of many proposed ESSSuper seminars that will cover a range of topics. We hope to see you there.
