The convenience of technology has been a great benefit to our lives since Coronavirus restrictions came into effect; but it has also exposed more of us to the risk of data breaches, scams and identify theft that unfortunately comes with it. Read more about what to look out for and how to protect yourself.
Daily life has been turned upside down for all of us due to COVID-19 and new ways of living, working and connecting have quickly become the norm. Whatever changes you are adapting to personally, adviser Michael Russell shares his tips on getting your budget under control in the face of new financial realities.
The ACCC's Scamwatch has already received 94 reports of Coronavirus-related scams and expect that number to rise. Since the Federal Government announced measures to allow people to access their superannuation, scammers have been impersonating super funds in calls and emails asking Australians to confirm their super account details.
Proposed changes to franking credits in SMSFs are on the horizon if Labor is elected in May. There could be significant impacts for retirees with an SMSF who are wholly in the pension phase. Financial adviser, Jason Calleja, explains the potential impact and what you can do to protect your wealth if the proposed changes come into effect.
According to research by Investment Trends, 51% of retirees expect to outlive their retirement savings. If you aim to live on more than the Age Pension (full Age Pension rates plus supplements are $35,916 for a couple, or $23,824 for a single person, applicable since 20 September 2018), you will need to use smart strategies to find the additional income. Unlocking the equity in your home can be an effective way to achieve your lifestyle goals and generate more income in retirement.
