Brisbane’s Best Super Advice

We understand that considering your super often gets pushed to the side. You can’t access your super account until you reach your preservation age, after all. However, you can still benefit from super advice, even if you can’t directly utilise the money in the fund right away.

Your super account offers you financial stability after you retire. Therefore, it’s important to manage it properly to encourage wealth creation before you reach retirement age. We provide financial advice for all different types of superannuation including self managed superannuation funds (SMSF).

Facts About Super Funds

We understand the importance of having a plan that allows you to live in comfort after retirement, which is why we provide expert superannuation advice.

Superannuation allows you to set money aside for your future. Employers currently pay 10% of an employee’s salary into their superannuation account. However, this amount will climb to 12% in the future. You can also make personal contributions to your superannuation, it is important to consider your caps on contributions before putting additional funds into your account.

The funds in your super account gets invested, allowing the fund to grow over time and when you reach preservation age, you’re able to access the money and enjoy your retirement. Your super fund is subject to several fees for things like:

  • Administration
  • Investment
  • Insurance premiums
  • Advisor fees

Consider Merging Your Super Funds?

Generally, you get a super account for each job that you hold throughout your life. Dealing with multiple super accounts often becomes confusing and you may end up with your investments scattered. Fortunately, you can deal with this issue by merging your super funds. We can help you with the merger process. Combining your different super funds can help you:

  • Lower fees to manage your accounts

What is Transition to Retirement?

With a transition to retirement (TTR) strategy, you could access some of your super while you’re still working, once you have reached preservation age – the age when you can access your super.

You can start a TTR strategy by opening a TTR Income account alongside your regular super account. This way you could save more leading into retirement, or you could wind back on work while topping up your take-home pay.

I appreciated the very personal approach and the depth of detail that Blue Tree Financial went to, when I started with them last year. I now have a healthy superannuation fund that suits my exact requirements. Even better, the cost of the information I received was more than covered by the savings I made from putting the advice into action.
