Planning for your retirement could be one of the most exciting phases of your life.

After having worked so hard your whole life to get yourself into the best possible position, you have arrived at the point where you can consider a life after work and what your financial situation will look like when you cease working.

We specialise in working with our clients to understand their specific situation as they approach retirement. We investigate the history that has brought you to this point and look forward to your plans, goals and dreams of the future. We aim to provide and implement a financial solution for you to achieve the goals you have set for your retirement.

The case studies below highlight two commonly used strategies in our office for our clients approaching retirement. Of course feel free to contact the office if you have any questions about how these might apply to your circumstances.

Susan loves spending time with her grandchildren, playing tennis with her friends and she is keen to make the most of her retirement in 5 years’ time.

Susan is aged 60 and currently earns $120,000 p.a. as a Human Resources Manager. She has worked hard her whole life and made regular contributions to accumulate a Superannuation balance of $300,000.

Susan is looking forward to travelling the globe after she retires, but is concerned that her current Superannuation balance won’t be able to provide her with a comfortable lifestyle. She speaks with her wealth advisor to discuss her situation and was very interested to learn about a Transition to Retirement (TTR) strategy that would enable her to save tax, boost her Superannuation savings and retain the same level of take home pay.

The strategy works by utilising:

  • The tax benefits available to Susan from salary sacrificing a portion of her salary into her Superannuation,
  • The ability to commence a pension to draw down an amount to top up Susan’s take home pay,
  • Further tax benefits from having her Superannuation funds in ‘pension mode’

The scenario will look slightly different to each individual, however for Susan, her Superannuation balance could be almost $50,000 higher by utilising a TTR strategy at the end of her career. This could mean a more comfortable retirement, more opportunities to spoil her grandchildren, or the odd flight upgrade on her travels instead?

Heather and David, age 65, have had long and rewarding careers. Heather volunteers at a local Not For Profit and David is still enjoying working Part Time two days a week to top up their cash flow. Their house is paid off and they’re looking forward to relaxing in their retirement and spending more time with their grandchildren.

The couple have a meeting with Endorphin Wealth Management to start preparing for retirement and to look at strategies that may assist them get the most out of their situation. Their Wealth Advisor assisted them to determine how much money they might need and discussed strategies to maximise their Government Age Pension benefits by taking advantage of lifetime annuities.

Heather and David, age 65, are married and live in their own home. They have a Superannuation balance of $600,000 combined and David works Part Time earning $31,200 per year.

The additional Government Age Pension will enable the couple to splurge a bit more in their retirement – perhaps a couple more large holidays or even better, spoil the grandkids!

He took away our stress and streamlined our finances and investments, personalizing everything to suit our individual needs and circumstances. Both my partner and I would highly recommend Robert to anyone looking to secure their future finances and investments.read more

I have been working with Glenn for around 6 years. His advice over that time has help me build my superannuation &... retirement assets to a point where I can afford to retire. Around 6 months ago I decided that I wanted to formally retire. Glenn discussed importance of retiring to something and we spent time developing my vision for retirement. This included spending more time with my family, learning how to paint, mentoring my grandchildren, and keeping active by joining a swimming class. He also discussed the important lifestyle benefits that my work provides and how I can replace these once I leave the workforce. This holistic approach is true retirement planning. Because of Glenn I’m confident that I not only have enough money to retire but will also live a fulfilling and energising retirement.read more
