When that ' s in place, I indicate, it ' s just a paper and also it ' s it ' s kind of set in rock as well as after that, the final thing that we look at aiding around is beneficiaries. The where aged care comes in is actually I speak to it ' s generally clients that are retiring and also they ' ve obtained elderly moms and dads and also they ' re going via that procedure of looking at aged care or having to place them in aged treatment can be very complicated.Um how do you money it?What'' s the the costs that we ' re gon na have to pay? Um so this is where we truly help with the monetary side of points is placing a plan with each other to state okay well this is the finest structure that if you desire to fund aged care in the most effective way take a look at potential estate values to make certain that that that they'' re maximized.Getting the most effective care for your moms and dads. Just how do we do all that? This is where we can we can assist. So it ' s just to advise I guess our participants that we can aid in a great deal of ways. and also this is as you say an expanding area given the complexity. of the rules around aged care. Thanks Tom. Um I was simply going to say is is that if you ' ve obtained any kind of concerns send them through. We ' re we ' re coming to the end very quickly. Um if you ' ve obtained any type of inquiries, you can go with on the Q&A function on the on the on the Zoom call and we ' ll we ' ll come back to your concerns momentarily if'you ' ve obtained any type of. I understand that there is a pair there currently. Tom, can you just experience on what products you can actually you most likely touched a scattering of them right through this session tonight.Yeah. Um simply swiftly conclude on what you can in fact supply
as a monetary organizer. Yeah, absolutely. So, I I think the function of these workshops is to not just enlighten you but to try as well as I guess trigger you to consider, fine, have we obtained a plan in area? So, you may have a coordinator, be seeing them, that ' s great. This is where if you come and also see us, these are the sorts of'things that we concentrate on. Conserving much more for retired life having, approaches to do that. Just how do we increase Centrelink? Okay? Considering if you are concerned regarding the length of time your money ' s gon na last. Having a plan in position to check out situations. We often look at okay well if we retire earlier just how does that look? If we retire later on at the office part-time. Providing you a little bit more info Um we ' ve already touched on those'estate preparation kind of advantages that we can look at. And also any non-super investments that you could have that you might wish to get into Super. Um having a method around well tax effectively marketing them down. Um restrictions on just how much we can enter super.So just an all natural strategy once again with concerns to all these kind of subjects.
And when we consider recommendations for there ' s always what we call concrete and abstract benefits to guidance. So I believe on the next slide that we ' ve obtained. oh well I assumed we had one there but no. Chatting concerning benefits to advice. Um there ' s a tangible side of points. We saved on tax obligation. We built the very. We ' ve obtained even more Centrelink. To make sure that ' s where we can truly add worth. However we likewise include worth on the intangible side'of things which is more that well we ' ve got a plan in position. We ' ve got a blueprint that we can work towards as well as maintain track of. Um'to ensure that ' s often what a great deal clients like as well is they simply want to be have that risk-free expertise that they ' ve obtained a plan in place that they can follow entering into retirement. Lovely. Many thanks for that Tom. What I will certainly state is is that I mean would certainly you mind going through the economic suggestions offerings. I suppose the very first thing that I need to claim is is that if you do need any general info or basic guidance you can call our phone call centre. You can call our local supervisors. If you do desire to obtain additional details from the fund and also the basics of your account looking at the website which I ' ll touch on in a moment.Please do not be reluctant to provide either myself or one of our regional supervisors a phone call. I expect the other thing is is that Justin our aide in the background has actually just placed in a link into the chat center. If you desire more information from the fund you can utilize that link as well as it can take you through as to which option you would prefer. that is absolutely up to you. Um now the one thing that I would say is Tom would certainly you mind undergoing both various solutions that we have readily available? Yeah so for the much more individual recommendations to ensure that ' s where you you ' re being being given some referrals. We ' ve got a pair of alternatives. The over the phone suggestions. That ' s a complimentary solution at the fund office. we ' re totally qualified advisors can give you individual advice however just on'particular topics connecting to your super.So those the primary topics that'they check out are the financial investment selection within your super. So if you ' re having any kind of inquiries around that or taking a look at any different financial investment alternatives payments to extremely. So, that ' s quite a popular one especially with the rise in the cap. that if you want to check and you desire to try and also rise to that cap due to the fact that you can pay for to do so. The restricted advice team can give you some'referrals. Exactly how do we ensure we do that? and after that the 3rd area is around insurance within your super fund that if in we haven ' t truly touched on it cuz this is a retirement planning seminar yet if insurance coverage is necessary the appropriate levels of insurance coverage they provide you some referrals on that. That ' s the free service a or free services being a member of the fund. The thorough guidance service, well, this is where we check out your entire situation. Um if you ' re a participant of a pair, we always look at you as a couple as well.It ' s very crucial Um and you you put on ' t have to be a member of Australian Catholic Super to obtain advice cuz with this solution, it ' s what we call a FIFA solution design. The initial appointment, if any of you have gone
through it previously, if you always rest down, generally for about an hour and an hour and a fifty percent, look at your situation as well as go', fine, exactly how can we help? We go, well, in my expert viewpoint, you need to concentrate on X, Y, and also Z. This is what I would consider as part of the plan. Um and this is the type of strategy that I would create. Um if we can ' t help you, we would certainly claim so. We ' d state, well, appearance, you ' re doing whatever that you actually can. There ' s not a lot truly that we can assemble in part component of a strategy But if there is, we would discuss, well, this is what we can do. These are the benefits and after that, we give what we call a taken care of quote for the declaration of suggestions and placing that blueprint with each other which ' s a fixed quote to generally place the guidance with each other, undergo the suggestions, as well as carry out the advice.We don ' t cost any type of ongoing charges. I wear ' t obtain any kind of commissions or bonuses for any type of suggestions that I do. It sounds a little bit selfless yet I obtained into doing guidance since I like to assist people pass on'my understanding, placed them in a far better placement. Um but eventually, if we hang out doing that and that the person is profiting from that recommendations, detailed, we need to charge for time it takes. So you get a quote usually talking it can be anything between 1500 to 2 as well as a half thousand bucks. Relying on the intricacy of the strategy. Um so yet you choose whether you wish to continue after that stage. to put that plan together. Without a doubt. I expect Tom there was an inquiry there from Gail. I will certainly schedule a person to offer Gail a hire concerns to the timing problem of tonight ' s webinar. So Gail somebody will certainly give you a call from our workplace tomorrow in relation to to the tonight ' s webinar. Tom I suppose the the thing with thorough guidance is is that individuals need to well I'intend either see in person or you recognize seek some convenience to make certain that they ' re on track.I always tell people that by involving meet you there ' s reached be an understandable benefit in you doing the recommendations. Can you just undergo in terms of the price framework and also just how you
you recognize work with clients to chat regarding the cost and also and what benefits that would occur from that? Yeah. So, I think when it come to the the advantages, it returns to that concrete and also abstract benefit yet often I can reveal instantly that well, you ' re gon na save ten times out that you ' re gon na spend for the advice in tax or interested saved money on lendings. To ensure that ' s rather a simple, I think, profit because again', it doesn ' t benefit me what the client does, whether they whether they take suggestions or they don ' t.Um so, we simply bill for the time it takes for putting that case together. That ' s how we charge for the suggestions. There ' s the abstract advantage as well that some individuals
like to pay for the recommendations because they desire that feeling that'they know they ' ve obtained a plan in location and they ' re on track. So it might not be that we can conserve from thousands in tax obligation yet that they feel it ' s worth paying for'the suggestions due to the sensation. Currently, that ' s a really specific choice that some individuals more than happy to pay that charge. Some people aren ' t. All I would certainly claim is returning to the costs pool. We ' re not a profit-making business.We ' re just a cost-recovery service in terms of recuperating the expenses it takes to to for the time it requires to place that advice together.
', typically talking, if get a quote from myself. You can most likely to one more financial preparation organisation and obtain a quote that I believe we you ' d locate we ' re very affordable in terms of any plan that we would assemble to help participants. Yeah and also I ' d additionally or I constantly inform people that they ' re going to obtain an approach plan that ' s what? 60, 70, 80 web pages lengthy sometimes.Yep. Um if you intended to you can allow it exist under the cushion. Um absorb it. Provide you comfort understanding that you ' re on the right track at each as well as every day if you wished to. We ' re all So, if you do obtain a plan placed together, we put on ' t simply give you the strategy as well as state, there you'go. We assist you.We, we, we, it ' s all the the time it takes to carry out any kind of recommendations too which which would usually more than a 12 or 18 month period. So, that ' s what the price is covering is also the time it'requires to implement as well as yeah. So, I expect after tonight ' s there ' s a link there that is being put in the conversation if you wish to take part in that'service. Somebody can offer you a phone call to prepare a consultation time or otherwise will certainly be a study sent out to you after'the session tonight. that will likewise include some an opportunity for you to give some feedback in in regards to tonight ' s session.But it ' ll likewise permit you that if you wished to acquire more details you can indicate where you would like that. And also we ' ll schedule someone from the fund workplace to give them a telephone call pretty quickly. So thanks quite for that Tom
. I mean the important things that we additionally require to address is the is the new or the the your future your extremely regulations that was lately introduced. I intend it has a little bit of a a background in the feeling that it was presented back in October of twenty twenty. Um it was enacted laws only recently Um and afterwards the way the examination would run was just offered in early of August. Um I mean there has been some significant conversation in concerns to the examination and the make-up of the test. We were just notified that our My Super Financial investment choice. Um the My Super Financial investment or Default option did not pass examination and we ' re only alerted on the 30th of August Basically the examination is a seven year examination and also what it ' s done is is that it ' s contrasting it to a predetermined benchmark.So we have a lifetime one choice that has actually only been readily available for the last 3 weird years and what they ' ve done is combined and used our previous default investment option of being the traditional balanced alternative. So essentially they ' ve used 2 incredibly various products to incorporate them with each other to establish our efficiency on the test. So primarily the combination of these two products that'we ' ve created did not pass this mandated test. So we just desired to see to it that this only puts on the default alternative. It does not use to'the other 13 financial investment choices that we have in the fund. As well as after that to day we have not been recommended of the specific setting on on on the on the standard. The reason the under performance is is that our definitely our shares investment item has not certainly fulfilled the legal criteria. Currently that is a historic thing. Um as well as the irony is is that we ' ve always pointed out and you ' ve if you ' ve checked out the disclaimer or had you the the the one of the factors there is is that previous performance is not an indication to future performance.And yet this examination is looking back traditionally over the last seven years. So back in 2 thousand as well as eighteen we'have restructured our share profile to make sure that it ' s taking the finest advantages that are readily available there for our members. The various other product that has resulted in the detraction or or or the result is is that our different financial investments have actually been I mean assembled at a criteria as well as contrasted with each other at a criteria of a property that substantially higher in growth orientation which consequently if it ' s a higher development orientation it must have carried out. Um a a higher amount over a longer duration of times.This is certainly adversely impacted the portfolio. We ' ve formerly recognized our under performance 6 and also 7 years earlier. I can honestly say since with the introduction'of life time one in the last 3 years we ' ve seen stronger performance as well as I ' ll give you with some efficiency figures in a minute. The one point that I would certainly say if want additional details in concerns to this YFYS test that we have a specialized page on our website.Um the federal government has provided a my extremely contrast device. Um as well as I would certainly state Tom we'' ve both known clients that have actually looked on that. and we ' ve also seen lots of people comparing our fund over the three years. We acknowledge the fund has had performance under efficiency years earlier. Six and seven years ago.
We recognize that in the last three years considering that Life time One has actually been around. This Lifetime one or or items that is currently our current has actually been extremely competitive versus various other superannuation funds. As well as I we would certainly ask and recommend for you to go and compare those.I expect there are lots of different point of views and there ' s a great deals of various articles and also we ' ve placed a few of those on that site web page as well. In regards to ah the objectives of the product it ' s been it ' s it ' s it ' s it ' s a tended objectives. It ' s for instance members under 40 years of age. My youngsters who remain in this
item. And last entry year finishing June 30. a return of'20. 9%after charges and also tax obligations. A a return that ' s not very not not very seen in our lifetime of our of investments. Whilst'we ' re being in a superannuation fund. So life time one basically is high risk for more youthful members. They have a high growth positioning. Merely and totally they have an extended period of time to retired life And this way of living investment.Once they struck the age of 40'they slowly minimize down in threat. So it becomes a growing number of conventional as you get closer in the direction of retirement And also I think that ' s a fantastic and also it ' s a life cycle item. Um that we say in the sector. And it ' s certainly one that I find that it ' s as human beings we obtain increasingly more conservative.
I picture Tom that you ' ve seen people more detailed to retired life coming to be an increasing number of traditional as they age. Obtaining closer to retired life They ' re. seeing their dimension of their account balance and that ' s exactly what'this product has actually done. as well as it'' s done it ' s it ' s absolutely done what it was meant to do as well as developed to do. You can see there last monetary year a 40 year old the greatest threat direct exposure was 20. 88%. As you can'see there ' s a basic reduction in the returns and what we ' ve done is is that every single year'you ' ve got a very gradual as well as I state I try to emphasise that when it ' s a really progressive decrease down in danger. When you ' re looking at contrasting products you need to make certain that you ' re comparing products that are risk proper to that age. Therefore I would certainly refer individuals to the financial investment truth sheet that ' s on our web site in regards to the various structures of regards to danger.
However you'can see there ' s a person who ' s aged 60 in a conservative setting. Um the return was 13. 87 for last economic year. And the 3 years average was 6 factor five five percent. You can see there that the lifetime ones returns has definitely done what it is meant to do.' I intend our'future the outlook. The trustee has definitely constantly made sure that we are caring for the members ideal economic interests. As well as they ' re going to continue to do so. They ' re mosting likely to be I intend you could state acting in the most effective financial rate of interests of the participants By looking for range. Um the has integrated with huge superannuation funds. There ' s been a great deal of merges of late.And the fund will in the not also remote future be introducing a merger partner that will certainly provide us with scale. The government has actually absolutely suggested that to make it through in the superannuation fund moving forward. You need to be of a fund of at least 50 billion dollars. We ' re definitely looking to be
a mosting likely to a partner that will certainly be in unwanted of that. that it by method is going to be taking care of the member ' s best financial interest is is that it will certainly generate scale. It will certainly give higher advantages to participants. Um with the economic situations of scale maybe decreasing costs. We'' ve currently in minimized prices in the in the previous few months and also we will certainly be minimizing indirect investment costs quickly. Certainly if you ' ve got any questions in regards to the fund I ' d ask you to reach out to your dedicated regional supervisor as well as they can supply you additionally info in concerns to this efficiency test. I ' d likewise motivate you to go and also have an appearance at that extremely comparison device and do a contrast on the fund.
And look at that and take a look at that 3 year performance figure'. I suppose the other choices that we do give is is that we can look at the upcoming webinars Now we do a quarterly investment webinar and also I would certainly imagine the one would certainly be coming up in the following month. Um as well as these are all detailed on our site. So just like you ' ve registered for tonight ' s webinar. There are absolutely a lot of webinars that you can do. You can look at to sign up to acquire some more information. I intend the other point is is that if you wish to get some additional information as I pointed out, there ' s the web link for the for there yet there ' s additionally the study form.We ' ve got any kind of inquiries. Um we can we can certainly offer you a phone call. I expect the people that have actually inquired inquiries, I ' m going to ask your neighborhood regional manager to reach out to ensure that every one of your inquiries have been addressed tonite. Um I posture the other thing that I tell individuals to consider is the

You can do a number of items there. You can make a payment. Clearly you can see your account balance like this person has.You can change your investment choices.

Based upon your payments over the last one year. And we can do some planning as to where your account or our company believe your account will most likely to in accordance with your chosen threat profile.

Never ever also late. Even if it'' s just a year out. Um 6 months out.

So when pulling money out of a Roth IRA, the getting guidelines state that you can take out your normal contributions initially prior to you enter into any type of earnings, however that'' s not the case with Roth 401k. Those Roth distributions appear ad valorem, indicating you'' ll need to consist of some incomes in every distribution, thinking you have any incomes, and also you put on'' t reach draw out one of the most tax preferred dollars initially, whenever you'' re speaking about Roth distributions, you wish to discover out if you'' re making a qualified circulation as well as a qualified distribution normally requires that you'' ve had the account open for 5 years or even more, and you'' re over age 59.5, now, fatality as well as handicap also qualify. And if you'' re relocating cash over to an individual retirement account, things can look various as well, but this is the kind of study you desire to do, discover if you can make a qualified circulation, certainly, the option for making use of Roth might not matter if you'' ve invested your whole life putting in pre tax money, and also naturally, you did have to pay taxes when you make those payments, so once again, absolutely nothing is best below, like I said, you'' ve either paid it one way or another, yet these are means to potentially handle your tax obligations today.Next on the list of not best remedies is a 401K financing, so when you obtain from your 401K, you wear ' t owe taxes on'that withdrawal as long as you pay back the car loan on time, however if you wear'' t pay back, any overdue amount may be dealt with as a distribution which'' s subject to taxes as well as possibly early withdrawal charges, plus with fundings, you truly need to be mindful regarding leaving your task or losing your work, so you could be needed to pay back the superior car loan equilibrium when you quit working for your employer, yet you might not have those funds readily available to just settle a financing in a round figure, that'' s probably why you obtained in the very first place, in some instances, it is possible to balance out the financing amount by adding the cash to an IRA later on, yet those rules can be complicated, and again, you just need a swelling sum of cash to repay the loan, if you'' re mosting likely to do that … What regarding that Obligatory tax withholding? When you take a cash circulation from a 401k, the strategy usually has to withhold 20% of the gross quantity and also send that over to the IRS, as well as that'' s an advance settlement or a down payment on your ultimate tax obligation costs for the year, it'' s not necessarily the exact amount you owe … It'' s simply a down payment. You could owe a lot more, you might owe much less … That'' s bothersome if you need the total that'' s in your 401k, if you can'' t afford to do without that 20%, so as a possible remedy, you might move every one of that cash out of the 401K over to an individual retirement account, an individual retired life account that you regulate and afterwards from there, you can take circulations making use of whatever tax obligation withholding degree you desire, it may be 20%, 10% or absolutely no, once again, bear in mind that you may owe tax obligations on that particular later, as well as not withholding enough might wind up in there being a huge tax expense later in the year and potentially some under payment charges, so there are a number of challenges with that method, and also you also require to be able to take a distribution from your 401k that could not be possible unless you have actually left your job.So it'' s vital to take a look at all these details. By the way, I'' m Justin Pritchard, and also I help people prepare for retirement as well as invest for the future, and also I'' m going to place some resources in the summary below, extra on this subject concerning these tax obligations on 401 withdrawals, individual retirement account withdrawals, I believe you'' ll discover that valuable, there will likewise be some general retirement planning info, simply broad view stuff that I assume will be truly handy, so make certain to examine that out, and also it'' s also a great time to bear in mind, this is simply a short video clip, we'' re not covering whatever right here, it'' s just type of some food for idea, so certainly do some even more research study, three-way check everything and talk to a professional before you make any kind of decisions, so what if your main issue is the fine tax, you'' re under age 59 and fifty percent, as well as you'' re taking a circulation, what are some ways to a minimum of prevent that, also if you need to pay income tax obligations? One remedy may be the so called regulation of 55, this can allow you to obtain money out of a pension without paying the very early withdrawal tax obligation penalty.So you have to leave your work at age 55 or later, as well as if you utilize the cash from that Work ' s, 401K or 403B, Not a different job, however that task that you left at 55 or later on, you can use that cash without the very early withdrawal fine. You still generally owe revenue taxes if it'' s a taxed circulation, that age can go even reduced for public safety employees, there'' s additionally the 72t or substantially equivalent periodic repayments, as an example, that would certainly allow you to take a series of settlements from your pre tax accounts, as well as you can start those before age 59 1/2, getting the cash without the early withdrawal charge, but the approach can be type of inflexible and also difficult, you need to do it for at the very least 5 years, or age 59 and also a half, whichever is much longer, as well as if you make any type of type of little blunder, which is simple, then you could thwart the entire method as well as you would retroactively owe taxes.You have to
be extremely mindful keeping that one, yet it could be a solution. There are likewise 457 strategies out there that wear'' t have an early withdrawal charge, so if you have a governmental 457 B, as an example, you need to have the ability to take withdrawals at any kind of age without a very early circulation penalty. That'' s important to bear in mind, possibly you leave that job in your 30s or 40s or something like that, you might take into consideration leaving the funds in that 457 because after that you have the flexibility to gain access to that money early without the penalty. Preferably. You wait for later on. Often life takes place. That'' s wonderful to have. There are numerous various other exemptions too, so be sure to research those on the internal revenue service internet site or with your tax specialist, and you might obtain some great suggestions, naturally, Captain Obvious would certainly claim, Wait till age 59 and also a fifty percent, which could be possible if you'' re already in your late 50s, possibly you just have a number of years to go. Possibly there are some alternative resources of the funds to choose from, and if you can just make it a couple of years, you have saved that 10%, which can truly make a wonderful difference.Next, we have actually certified charitable distributions or QCDs, so if you are charitably minded, you can offer money straight to a tax professional charity from your individual retirement account, and note that this is from an individual retirement account, not a 401k, so when this is done correctly that contribution is not consisted of in your earnings, despite the fact that you pull the cash out of a pre tax retirement account, so if you ' re going to donate cash anyhow, it ' s truly worth examining this alternative', and that ' s since you ' ll reduce your tax'worry and by skipping the tax repayment, that leaves more cash for your favorite charity in other words, you put on ' t have to take a distribution, pay the'tax obligations on it and afterwards provide the remainder to charity, you can reduce out the middle action and simply send out all of the cash straight to a charity, be certain to review this approach very thoroughly with your tax professional, due to the fact that there are some regulations and constraints to be conscious of specific age limitations as well as optimal quantities, however if you can satisfy every one of those, it ' s a fantastic method, be'sure to have a look at my various other video clips on tax obligations as well as retirement accounts.And if you discovered this practical, please leave a quick thumbs up.

When are you hoping to retire? Retirement financial tips
Harvey 0 Comments Planning your Retirement
– When will you retire? There's been much social
and political debate since the federal government
pushed out the age that you can access the age pension. Although most occupations don't have a legislative retirement date, there's no doubt that when
you can access an age pension does have an impact on the retirement date for many people. So, here's a few examples around when you might choose to retire. The first one is when I
can access the age pension. Unfortunately for many people, this will be the only option. If you don't have significant
assets behind you, superannuation, investment properties, savings, you may not be able to retire until you're eligible for the age pension. This is going to be age 67 by 2023. If the government's
current proposal is passed, it will be age 70 by 2035. If your retirement plans don't line up with when you would be
eligible for an age pension, you may choose to withdraw
funds out of superannuation for a year or two until you become eligible
for the age pension to help subsidize your income. You might choose to stop work as soon as you can get your
hands on your superannuation. For most people, this is age 60. However, if you were
born before the mid-'60s, it can be as low as 55, increasing to 60 over that timeframe. There are other options
you may wish to consider if you wish to retire this early or earlier as well and that is using assets
other than superannuation. This is because you are still taxed on accessing superannuation
until you're age 60. So, in a lot of cases, it can make sense to wait. So, that's the third option. Waiting until you can access
your super tax free at age 60. The downside of retiring early is that your retirement savings have to last a long time. So, this generally means you either have to have a large balance to begin with or have a low amount of drawings to ensure it's going to
last a long enough period and generally retirement
there's three phases. The first phase of retirement is when you're the fittest
and healthiest usually and you start to do the things perhaps on your bucket list. Do the travel thing, great nomad thing, maybe go overseas, do all the things you've wanted to do but haven't had time because maybe you've had
kids growing up at home, had a mortgage to pay and obviously time taken
up by paying the bills and working your job. However, with the right advice, there can be effective strategies that we can use to make sure that you can retire when you want to retire
and live the lifestyle you want to live. If what you're trying to
achieve isn't feasible, it's important to speak
with somebody's who's going to tell you exactly that as well. The decision on when to hang up the boots for the last time is a challenging decision both
financially and emotionally. I can assist in helping ensure that the day you choose puts you in the optimal position. (upbeat music)

10 tips to ensure a successful retirement
Harvey 0 Comments Planning your Retirement
– Are you looking forward to retirement? Of course you are. Check out our top 10 tips to make sure you're on track. The sooner you get started, the more likely you'll have a happy and healthy retirement. Tip one is take stock. How do you want to live in retirement? Do you want to move to a new area? Do you want to do a bit of travel? How much is it going to cost? How much do you have saved? Are you on track? If not, what are you
going to do to get there? Tip two. Plan for the rest of your life. Most people are in retirement
longer than they expect. While your health and family history will influence the length of your life, most people are living longer. In fact, you could easily
live into your 90s. Plan for the long term and don't forget that you may need extra
assistance as you get older. Tip three. Review your investments. For your savings to last
the rest of your life you need to have the right mix of growth and defensive assets and you also need to have something to bring in an income and also a bit of growth. Diversifying your assets across cash, fixed interest, shares and property can help smooth the returns. Tip four. Stick to your plan. Investments can quickly change in value and while it's tempting
to sell out of shares when markets go south, this is often the worst
thing that you can do. It's important to remain
focused on the long-term as they usually recover
if given a long enough period of time. Tip five. Get the structure right. By changing the way you own investments and the way you receive the income can reduce the amount of tax you pay and also increase the
amount of age pension or DVA pension you receive. Even if you aren't
entitled to an age pension, you may be eligible for discounts which can save money over the long term. Tip six. Get your affairs in order. Estate planning allows you
to pass on the right assets to the right people at the right time. Unfortunately we are all going
to pass away at some point. The first step in a good estate plan is by getting a will. You should also speak with your solicitor about enduring power of attorney and advanced medical directive. And remember to review your estate plan every few years as
circumstances change over time. Tip seven. Stay fit and healthy. If you stay physically and mentally active you're more likely to enjoy
a longer, healthier life. Take up a hobby, learn a new skill or maybe volunteer in the community. Tip eight. Rethink the move. Some retirees move to a new location that they've always wanted to retire in and it hasn't measured
up to what they expected. If this is something you want to do, perhaps move there
temporarily just to make sure it lives up to your expectations. Tip three. Review your investments. For your savings to last
the rest of your life, you need to have the right mix of growth and defensive assets and you
also need to have something to bring in an income
and also a bit of growth. Diversifying your assets across cash, fixed interest, shares
and property can help smooth the returns. Tip four. Stick to your plan. Investments can quickly change in value and while it's tempting
to sell out of shares when markets go south, this is often the worst
thing that you can do. It's important to remain
focused on the long-term as they usually recover
