I recently turned 50 and was informed a few days ago that I have a few job options, one would be finishing up my job in the new financial year with a better than expected redundancy package and as the PPOR is paid off bar a few thousand to keep the loan open, a couple of IP's are paid off and there is no other debt apart from IP's by my rough calculations its possible if we sell a few properties and pay out the loans and a few others from the CG and keep living the simple but satisfying lifestyle we have fine tuned over the last 20 years that we can preserve most of the funds until super kicks in and I wont need to look for another job. Of course I will need to get those ideas fine tuned or shown some better ideas and as part of the package there is an amount of dollars provided (my spend they reimburse) for financial advise before I make the final decision on whether to take the package or not. I have never seen a financial planner in the past because I have a family member who is a financial advisor and his personal financial situation given his profession and age has left me somewhat nonplussed as to their actual abilities. Saying that, I do need to get several scenarios run or shown something new I haven't thought off and the tax side of things needs to be finessed so I can see where we'll actually be (real numbers) each week. So can anyone suggest someone in the SEQ area that is worth seeing, preferably with Govt. Super knowledge? Thanks in advance.
