How to get started

We understand it’s sometimes hard to know what you need. You may know what you want, but not necessarily how to get there (financially speaking that is). That’s what we do!

We’ll talk with you about what you really want and where you want to go – in terms of income, assets, and lifestyle – and then provide a framework to help you get there.

We can then check in with you regularly to make sure you’re still on the right path – or if perhaps your preferred destination has changed, and new directions are needed.

Of course, life will sometimes throw things in your path, and you’ll be delayed or need to take a detour. Whatever happens, we’ll work with you to help you through such setbacks. By planning, you can feel confident and in control even as your situation changes.

So, how to get started? Let’s start with what’s most important: you!

For all Age Pensioners and Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card holders (and other Concession beneficiaries) in SA, now is the time to apply for your Cost of Living Concession if you haven’t already… This year’s Cost of Living Concession is a one off payment of at least $224.60 and Age Pensioners can get up to $449. The application process is pretty simple by entering some basic details online (or via the paper form) but you do need to apply before December 31, 2022 to receive the payment.
