Australian Unions recognises that it is difficult for union members to know where to go when seeking financial advice. There is a lot to consider when it comes to making financial decisions and setting goals for your future. Therefore we encourage union members to obtain professional financial advice. There are so many organisations and individuals offering financial and investment advice that it becomes a major headache to pick one that is right for you.
Industry funds and other profit-to-member super funds all offer some free general advice on super to their members. They can help with maximising your retirement income by recommending different investment mixes within your super portfolio and your voluntary contribution options. They can also advise on the different insurance and income protection covers that may be available to you.
If you need further advice, Industry Super Australia have a fee-for-service financial advice facility with financial advisors who deliver professional, low-cost, commission-free advice to members. Contact Industry Super Australia for more information.
If you're a member with First State Super they have their own Financial Planning network. In fact, First State Super holds the largest industry fund financial planning network with over 220 planners in 43 regional offices across Australia. Head to firststatesuper.com.au/member/support-advice/financial-advice_planning to find out more.
If you're a member of REST you can find out about financial advice on their website too.
Alternatively, friends and colleagues may recommend a financial advisor, or you might conduct a search online. Before you choose a financial advisor however, here is a list of questions to ask. Make sure they answer openly and to your satisfaction – and beware of advisors who earn their income primarily from commissions on financial products that they sell. On-going commissions can have a serious effect on your wealth.
If members of ISA funds require financial advice they can access a range of financial topics, services and online calculators via the Industry Super Australia Website.
Information about Superannuation
“Australia has been built by working people who have had the courage to stand up to unfair and unjust rules and demand something better. Australian unions support ME because we share the same values. ME grew out of the union movement - our hard fought principles of fairness and demanding something better for members. It’s a bank committed to helping Australians get ahead.”
Sally McManus, ACTU Secretary
all about ME
Every Australian deserves to get the most out of their money. We’re here to help them do it.
We were originally created by member-owned industry super funds to be a fairer home loan lender, helping Australians reach the dream of owning their own home. These days we’re a fully fledged bank, but our profits still go back to the industry super funds – the very same ones that look after the retirement savings of more than seven million Australians.
We help Australians get ahead. We give you ways to get more from your savings, pay less on your loans and cut down on fees – however we can, whenever we can.
We’re making banking as simple as possible. You shouldn’t have to wade through jargon to find what you need, and opening an account should be easy.
And because financial know-how doesn’t always come naturally, we give you tools to spend wiser and save smarter: things like our online school of money ‘ed’, which is fast, free and simple to use.
