Financial forum for retirees in Wonthaggi

Retirement is supposed to be a time for family, relaxation or pursuing passions. However, it’s hard to enjoy all these things if your finances aren’t in order.

Retirement is supposed to be a time for family, relaxation or pursuing passions. However, it’s hard to enjoy all these things if your finances aren’t in order.

If you are retired or about to retire, learn how to make smarter financial choices at a financial forum hosted by Latrobe Community Health Service next month.

The forum is a repeat of an event held earlier in the year, but will feature superannuation as a new topic.

“Superannuation is a great mystery to many people – most of us have
it, but we don’t always understand it,” said Joanne Ramselaar, project officer at Latrobe Community Health Service.

“Based on feedback from our previous event, we found people were unclear about superannuation financial terms like balanced funds.

“Many people just want to learn different ways of making their money last so they can enjoy life.”

Speakers will provide information on a variety of topics, including how to manage your money, Centrelink information for retirees and
responsible gambling.

The financial forum for retirees will be held at the Wonthaggi Workman’s Club on Tuesday, 20 October 2015 from 9:45am to 3pm. It is a free event and lunch will be provided.

To RSVP, phone Jo Ramselaar at Latrobe Community Health Service on 1800 242 696.
