Australians are generally reluctant to seek professional financial advice, despite the financial landscape (including the retirement system) becoming increasingly complex. The right financial advice can help you to get the most out of your superannuation.
Advice doesn’t have to be expensive, particularly if you have simple needs. Your super fund may even be able to offer you the help you require.
It’s important to know whether any financial advice you receive is independent or not. Advisers are legally required to provide you with a financial services guide that will let you know this information. Independent financial advice can be broadly defined as advice that is impartial or unbiased. It is provided without any potential for a conflict of interest.
The resources here explain the value of advice, how to access it, and what to avoid.
