Free financial advice is as close as the phone

Do you know that you can access personal financial advice over the phone, at no cost from Lutheran Super?

By the time you retire, your super is likely to be one of the largest assets you have, aside from your family home (if you have one). To get the most from your super, it's essential that you make the best financial decisions for your particular situation.

For many of us, super can be confusing. Seeking financial advice from a licensed financial adviser can go a long way towards helping you to understand the choices you have and how to make the most appropriate decisions. For example, while Lutheran Super provides default investment options for your super, if you don't make a choice, these default options may not be the best options for your current situation.

Lutheran Super understands how important this advice can be in helping our members in managing their super, so they provide this service for free.

By calling the Lutheran Super Helpline on 1800 635 796, you can speak to a licensed financial adviser, who can provide advice about:

  • making contributions to your super
  • making the most of tax savings offered by super
  • taking advantage of the Government co-contribution scheme if you're eligible
  • investing your super
  • how much insurance you may need.

Any advice you receive will be provided in writing.

The advice you receive over the phone is referred to as 'limited' personal advice, since it is limited to the areas listed above.

If you need a more detailed financial plan, you can make an appointment with an adviser by calling the Lutheran Super Helpline. There is a fee for more detailed financial advice but all of the costs will be explained to you before you proceed.
