Seriously though, this piece is all about what you’re probably doing right now – procrastinating. But unlike traditional procrastination where you experience a momentary boost of dopamine, this article could get you on the way to a monetary boost of dollars to be enjoyed when you retire. So in a funny way, your procrastination has led you to something that may add genuine value to your later life. Bingo!
Now, when it comes to putting things off, sorting out your superannuation seems to be a repeat offender for many, especially those who are decades, or even years, away from retiring. It’s a behaviour as common as shelling prawns on Christmas Day and, much like our favoured crustaceans, a little work can lead to a rewarding outcome.
This is why we created SunTracker – an easy way to help your super work for you when you’re no longer working. You don’t need to be a super expert – that’s our job – you just need to have an idea of where you want to be when you call it a day. We’ll take care of helping you with the rest.
Starting with just a phone call, one of our qualified Sunsuper financial advisers will get an understanding of your dreams and then tailor a plan specific to your goals. Once your path is set, you’ll receive annual updates on how you’re tracking, as well as emails regarding market and fund performance and other valuable information and inspiration relating to your future. You’ll also be given the opportunity to update your plan every three years. Put simply, SunTracker is about helping you start with more when you finish.
Of course, if you need help sorting out more than your super – estate planning, other investments, and more – we can put you in touch with a financial adviser from our National Advice Panel. We’ve carefully selected more than 65 advisers on our panel to deliver quality, face-to-face financial advice to Sunsuper members across Australia.
So, if you’re one of the many people who are still meaning to sort out your super, there has truly never been a better time or an easier way to take care of business to be sure it takes care of you when you retire.
Our phone based qualified financial planners provide simple advice about your Sunsuper account at no additional cost. More comprehensive advice, including that provided as part of the SunTracker program, may incur a fee. Sunsuper employees provide advice as representatives of Sunsuper Financial Services Pty Ltd (ABN 50 087 154 818 AFSL No. 227867) (SFS), wholly owned by the Sunsuper Superannuation Fund.
Sunsuper has established a panel of accredited external financial planners for our members. Sunsuper does not receive or pay any referral fees to these planners. Each of these planners will explain to you how their advice fees are determined. The accredited external financial planners are not employed by Sunsuper, and Sunsuper is not responsible for the advice provided by these planners.
