Social security/Centrelink

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

As well as the Age Pension, retirees may be eligible for 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 can be quite complex and can change over time.

The Age Pension can form the cornerstone of some people’s retirement income. We’ll review your situation and look at your assets, including property, investments and superannuation savings, and assess how these could affect your social security entitlements.
