It is important to find out if you qualify for any of the government benefits available to individuals and families when planning for your financial future. These include (but are not limited to) the Age Pension, Mature Age Allowance, Family Tax Benefit, Parenting Payment and Disability Support Pension. Additionally, there are a range of benefits for service veterans.

Retirees, with eligibility for the Age Pension may also be entitled to benefits including the Health Care Card, Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card, Pensioner Concession Card and the Pharmaceutical Allowance. Eligibility criteria apply to each benefit. These criteria may be quite complex and can change over time.

The Age Pension can form the cornerstone of some people’s retirement income. We can help you structure your investments and assets to maximise your chances of qualifying for a pension. We’ll review your situation and look at your assets, including property, investments and superannuation savings, to assess how these could affect your Centrelink entitlements.
