    For many people the thought of retirement is filled with excited expectations – time to spend with the grandkids, in the garden, hobbies, volunteering, travel. For others, it can be a time to escape – to overcome work fatigue, leave a dissatisfying job, or simply disliking work. Whatever your motivation for retiring, for many it doesn’t always work out as planned. Some people retire too early, become bored with the thought of nothing much to do for 20 or more years, so return to the workforce – or become depressed. Australian Catholic Superannuation has partnered with SuperFriend and the Australian Psychological Society to provide guidance about improving and maintaining your mental health.

     3) Guest presentation Centrelink  


    A component of our presentation is conducted by a representative from Centrelink and covers changes to the Age Pension assets test that become effective 1 January 2017, as well as eligibility for the Centrelink Age Pension. This session will be of interest to those already on the Age Pension or quite close to retirement and can help you understand how Centrelink support works in conjunction with your superannuation.
