You might have more Super than you think.

Keeping track of your superannuation can be difficult.  Especially when you consider the average time Australians are currently spending in a job is just over 3 years. 

So in a 50 year working life, on average you’ll have around 17 jobs.   That’s a lot of super funds to keep track of.   Each one of your funds could be charging you fees and each of them could have insurance built into them.  It may not sound important, but it really is.  You could be paying more than you have to and you could be paying for insurance elsewhere when you already have it.

Worse still, if something happens to you and you need to claim on that insurance, you may not know where to find it.  As part of the rollover consolidation process that I undertake with clients, a free “super search” is conducted based on your tax file number.   Various searching services have been around for a while, however, they usually charge a fee, take a long time and require you to complete lengthy forms.   Our process is simple, quick and doesn’t cost you anything.  

Searches over the last few months have yielded significant amounts of super funds for my clients.  It’s always a pleasant surprise for a client when I ring and say “look what I found.”


For further information, please don’t hesitate to call or email me.  Better still, drop in for a coffee and a chat in the office.  Tracking down all of your super and consolidating it into one fund will make a big difference to the end result.

Times are tough. How can you position yourself to minimise the impact?

The last few weeks have been extraordinary to say the least. We’re battling a world wide health crisis and we face uncertainty in many aspects of our lives.  It’s true that there are simply some things beyond our control and we will more than likely see many changes to our everyday lives for the remainder of 2020 and beyond. So, what can be done?  On the other side of this, many people will be left with dramatic financial stress, whether it be periods of unemployment, depleted cash reserves or battered superannuation balances.  And for many, timing will be an issue. Those who were weeks ago contemplating retirement may now need to change their plans. And those that are still accumulating for retirement have more than likely just seen their investments and superannuation return to levels of 5 or 6 years ago. Essentially the clock has be wound back in one way or another.  It may well be a good time to take stock and lay some foundations for when things do recover (which they

When Socks and Jocks don’t cut it anymore.

We have a solution  to avoid the old favourites: socks and jocks this Father’s Day.  As this weekend is Father’s Day, the focus should be on Dad.  You can purchase the actual book or the digital copy  so Dad can access year - round savings from his smart phone.  Part proceeds from your purchase, also helps a local Brisbane charity:  Be Uplifted Inc Breast Cancer Charity – so everyone wins!  Click here  to purchase Dad his Entertainment Book subscription. Another gift you could give Dad is encouragement.  To encourage Dad to have a conversation with a financial adviser about his super and insurances.  Why?  Maybe Dad has started a new job or had a promotion. Maybe Dad is nearing retirement? When our lifestyle changes or work situation changes, it affects your super + insurances. Reviewing these regularly will make sure Dad stays on track. Perhaps you know Dad has a few super funds hanging out there from previous jobs. This can affect a few things – especially Dad’s back pocke
