Attention Retirees!

Would you like to:

  • Maximise your age pension entitlements?
  • Have a secure lifetime income that covers your basic needs?
  • Have a long term defensive investment that is tax effective with typically higher returns than cash?

Annuities allow you to secure a guaranteed income for life or for a certain period of time depending on the annuity option you choose. You could consider using this guaranteed income to cover your basic expenses such as food, electricity, and petrol etc, while you draw down on your account based pension for your discretionary spending.

Annuities may also enable you to qualify for age pension or to increase your existing Centrelink benefits.

Even if you’re not eligible for Centrelink benefits, annuities can potentially provide higher and more tax effective returns than cash.

Retirement is a time to enjoy through spending more time with your family, traveling or enjoying the hobbies that you are passionate about. Financial stress in retirement is the last thing you want. An annuity may help reduce stress by providing a guaranteed income through an investment that could help to maximise your Age pension entitlement. Annuities may also help to increase the longevity of your super where used in conjunction with an account based pension.
