Frequently Asked Questions
We’re all on our unique journey in life and our financial road is no different. Often, decisions we make now affect our financial future, without us really being aware of the consequences. A financial planner can provide structure and guidance surrounding your financial decisions, helping you to work towards a clearer, more secure, financial future.
As a minimum, your financial planner should be contacting you on an annual basis. If your situation changes throughout the year, for example, your income changes, you are considering purchasing a new house, or you are looking at investment opportunities, you should speak to your financial planner before you make these decisions. Your financial planner will help you understand what these changes may mean for your financial future.
Nobody is exempt from life’s unforeseen events. No matter what your age, health or lifestyle, the unexpected can happen to anybody. Life insurance can give you and your peace of mind that you’re covered in the event of serious injury or death.
The cost of life or personal insurance varies depending on your personal circumstances and levels of cover required. It’s best to speak with a financial planner who will assess your situation and recommend a policy that best fits your needs and matches your personal goals.
Considering the way your policies are structured is important, as different structures may have different tax implications. Policies can be structured in a way to achieve certain tax outcomes in the event of a claim. Your financial planner will talk you through this during the advice process.
Estate planning is how you can ensure your assets pass onto your nominated family members in the most financially efficient and tax-effective way possible. Estate planning is more than just a will and includes other important documents like Enduring Power of Attorney, Advance Medical Directive and a Living Trust. Once you have your estate plan in place, you should review it yearly as life and circumstances can change.
You wouldn’t buy a house or car without insuring it, so why don’t we always do the same for our life and income?
There are four common personal insurances, but some add a fifth.
- Life insurance
- Total and permanent disability (TPD) insurance
- Critical illness insurance
- Income protection insurance
- Business expense insurance
Coverage varies between insurers, so seek professional advice when comparing the fine print.
The answer depends on who you ask. Some will say $1 million is the gold standard, but we don’t agree. The ideal amount for you depends on your retirement goals, individual situation, resources and lifestyle.
For most of us, our money comes into one bank account and is spent from that same account, and we don’t put much thought into in long-term savings strategy. If you’d like to have a solid financial future to better position yourself when unforeseen circumstances occur, then you should work with a financial planner on your cash flow plan.
A financial planner will review your spending, income and savings goals and create a strategy on how your money should be spent. They will also help set up your bank accounts so the whole process is seamless.
