In today’s economic environment, being made redundant can become an unexpected reality.

How can a financial planner help

We all have a lifestyle to maintain, some with dependents, and many with financial commitments such as mortgages, personal loans, and other obligations that require us to generate an income. If your source of income suddenly ceases, it could have a dramatic impact on your financial well being and even serious consequences depending on your personal circumstances.

Regardless of your current situation and future intentions, you will need to make some important decisions about your finances. This includes any redundancy or employee termination payments that you may be entitled to, your expenses, and how you can structure your affairs tax-effectively.

Redundancy and early retirement involve important financial decisions that can only be made with consideration given to your personal circumstances. A financial planner can help you by:

  • assessing your financial position and your ability to meet your financial commitments
  • identifying any employer payments that you may be entitled to
  • understanding how redundancy affects your superannuation
  • identifying any Government assistance you may be entitled to
  • understanding/assessing your personal insurance
  • planning the way forward.

A Bridges financial planner can help you plan for redundancy to make sure your money is used wisely.
